Habitat’s volunteer program for women who want to learn construction skills and build homes and communities.

Women Build brings together women from all walks of life to address the housing crisis facing millions of women and children worldwide. Women Build events have helped to construct more than 1,900 houses.

No Experience Necessary

If you don’t have any construction skills, don’t worry! Many women come to Women Build sites with no construction skills at all and still make a great impact. Training is provided.

You can get involved with Women Build and never enter a construction site. Local Habitat affiliates can use your help with training, travel or office support.


  • National Women Build Week – This annual event, sponsored by Lowe’s, encourages U.S. women to devote at least one day to the effort of eliminating poverty housing.
