Women Build

About Women Build

Habitat’s Women Build is an international campaign that has been engaging volunteers around the world since 1991 to support Habitat projects that empower women, children and the disadvantaged living in poverty across the globe.

Each year in March, we collaborate with local NGOs supporting women and children in Hong Kong and run a special renovation project to celebrate International Women’s Day.

“A home can lift a family out of poverty and it gives children and mothers a safe roof over their heads. This is the reason that Habitat for Humanity International started Women Build in 1991, in support of projects that empower women around the world. This year, working alongside our local NGO partners, and with support from our sponsors and volunteers, we are helping to improve the living conditions and well being of vulnerable women in Hong Kong.”
