Women Build 2018 will challenge women on the North Island to work on the Habitat for Humanity Vancouver Island North construction projects in Campbell River and Courtenay AND to help raise money to support these projects.
While the official campaign dates are March 23 through June 30, 2018, women (and men!) will be welcome on the build site throughout the construction season. We expect to pour foundations in mid-March.
Some people ask “Why a Women Build? What about the men?”
We want to be perfectly clear that Women Build is NOT about excluding men; it is about involving and empowering women in an industry that has been historically predominantly comprised of men. (Yes, we know the times are changing!)
Want to learn how you can start or join a team and be a part of an amazing project that will ultimately see 21 local families moving into safe and affordable housing on the North Island?
