Girls play house.
Women build them.
Bringing together women from across Oahu, Wahine Build is an annual initiative to mobilize, educate and empower women to build affordable homes with Honolulu Habitat for Humanity.
Women are disproportionately underrepresented on Habitat’s build sites. Whether for lack of training or gender bias, they account for only 30% of construction volunteers.
Through Wahine Build, we provide hands-on training and a comfortable learning environment to help women succeed in changing their communities.
