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.

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.
