All-Female Veteran and Military Spouse Team

For the New Albany/Floyd County 2015 Women Build Initiative, we were challenged to build a volunteer team of all-female veterans and military spouses.  We have risen to that occassion and will be helping NAFC Habitat build a home for a family in need this season.  Help us raise our team requirement of $1,500 to help a worthy cause.

A little bit about the cause and organization that we are volunteering for:

About the Women Build Initiative by Habitat for Humanity

We believe that decent, affordable housing is not a feminist issue. It is a quality of life and basic human dignity issue facing families everywhere.

The Women Build department of Habitat for Humanity International has one mission: empower women to take action against poverty housing conditions. The more people we can train to become effective volunteers, the better equipped we will be to fight poverty housing. Women Build brings together women from all walks of life to address in a concrete way the housing crisis facing millions of women and children across the globe.

Women Build is not about excluding men. It is about including women and opening new doors of opportunity. Men are often involved in our training programs and build projects in supportive roles and as subcontractors when women from the necessary trades are not available.

In what other ways does Women Build empower women?
Women Build supports Habitat’s advocacy programs by collecting information on the challenges that face women worldwide, particularly property rights. Women Build is exploring partnerships with several nongovernment organizations in developing countries to assist them in bringing the full rights and responsibilities of homeownership to women.
