Right now, more than 4,000 people are on the waitlist for social housing in Calgary. Our city is expensive, and women and children are the populations most likely to be affected by unstable living conditions.
We’ve set aside six days this May exclusively for women to fundraise and build homes with us in the northeast community of Pineridge. You’ll work under the guidance of experienced construction professionals, and alongside other Women Build participants and future Habitat homeowners.
Whether you’re learning new skills or simply adding a few to your tool belt, this is a rewarding experience, and improves the communities that we all share. Come with a team or come alone and make new friends. The atmosphere is welcoming, inviting, collaborative and friendly.
Women Build is a terrific way to involve your friends and family in crucial work that has a lasting impact. When you fundraise through your networks, you're sending a powerful message of what we can accomplish when we work together.
Each team member will receive the link to choose their day once they've reached their $350 fundraising minimum, so be sure to communicate regularly with your fellow teammates and cheer each other on!
