Since the first Canadian Women Build project in 1991, more than 650 Women build houses have been build across North America and in fourteen countries around the world. In 2005, 185 Habitat houses were build across Canada – three of them were Women Build houses – two of which were built in Winnipeg!
Women Build provides and environment in which women can feel comfortable learning skills they might not otherwise have the opportunity to learn. The Women Build program enables women to take a leadership role in making a tremendous, positive difference in their communities. Women take responsibility for the entire build process, from planning and training to fundraising and media communications, to roofing and dry walling.
The Kinsmen and Kinette Club of Winnipeg have once again sponsored the Habitat for Humanity Women Build for 2006.
