Bringing together women from across Oahu, Wahine Build is a celebration of the vital role women play in building strong, diverse communities. Throughout March 2022, women volunteers will raise funds and work side-by-side to construct a house in Waimanalo, HI with Honolulu Habitat for Humanity.

about our logo

The Wahine Build logo was created by Jana Sasaki, local graphic designer, to reflect concepts of construction, women-empowerment and Hawaiian culture. Jana spent countless hours curating each element to contribute to the story of Wahine Build and the message we intend to share with the community. Read more about Jana and our logo here.
