About Women Build - Every day, women contribute to the social, economic, and cultural well-being of our great city. Habitat for Humanity GTA’s unique Women Build event celebrates and harnesses the unstoppable power of women to come together to help transform a community and make a family’s dream of homeownership come true.
Habitat for Humanity GTA invites you to join 1,000 women from all walks of life in helping local, low-income families build a safe, decent and affordable place to call home. Since 2009, our annual Women Build events have rallied over 5,000 women, raised more than $4 million dollars, and helped build 85 homes.
This year, Women Build will kick-start the largest home building project in Habitat for Humanity GTA’s history by building foundations and raising walls for 50 townhouses on Pinery Trail in Toronto. Here's your chance to take action and help build, fundraise and advocate for decent, affordable housing for everyone. Through your fundraising efforts and participation in one of our exclusive, women-only build days, you will learn how to wield a buzz saw or hammer like a pro, meet other fantastic women who want to make a difference in your community and, most importantly, change lives forever. So ladies, bring your enthusiasm, your unmatched network fundraising abilities and some elbow grease, and let’s show the community what the power of 1,000 women looks like!
"Once Habitat gets in your heart, it becomes permanent and contagious! That is how this event works woman to woman, friend to friend, colleague to colleague together we all do our bit until we have something incredible.”
