Women Build Builds Their 19th Home!
Women Build empowers women from all walks of life to come together in a shared mission to help families in need of a decent and affordable place to call home. Whether building or fundraising, women from all walks of life come together to build affordable homes for families to purchase. By bringing women together to help build Habitat homes, Women Build promotes solidarity and pride in our city, working alongside each other to build new affordable housing. Women Build also introduces women to home construction, and through mentorship and training encourages women to assume leadership roles on the construction site.
The funds needed to construct Women Build homes are raised by an amazing committee of women who fundraise all year long through various events and campaigns, and then they come together to work on building the home. In 2022, construction will begin on the 19th Women Build sponsored home in Winnipeg and you can be a part of the build experience too!
Stay tuned for more exciting 2022 details to come!
Meet the 2022 Women Build Partner Family
Bethelhem, originally from Ethiopia, came to Canada 20 years ago to live with her aunt who sponsored her, fast forward to now and she is a proud Canadian citizen!
Bethelhem is a hard working mother of three young boys. She juggles many responsibilities as a single parent while being a valued employee as a Health Care Aide. Her employer shared that Bethelhem is reliable and always willing to take on additional shifts.
She does everything possible for her children to have a good life. All of her sons are in school and three years ago she made the decision to move into a two-bedroom rental to ensure her children lived in a safe neighborhood. All three boys share a bedroom. Their current unit does not meet their needs and is too small. As her children get older, they find it hard to have a designated space for homework without distractions.
Their future Habitat for Humanity Manitoba home is in close proximity to where Bethelhem and the boys currently live, attend school and work. This home will provide her the opportunity to invest into the family’s future and is a place to call their own, where the boys can play and grow.
Bethlehem is the Women Build sponsored family and she loves the idea of women empowering women. She is excited to be a part of the Women Build and work alongside an amazing committee of women who raise funds and will help her build her home.
Be part of an empowering experience and help build houses for families in need of a safe, decent and affordable place to live.
Stay tuned for 2022 dates.
