Traditionally home building hasn't been a woman's game, but if it's up to Habitat for Humanity that's all about to change.
Habitat for Humanity is focusing its recruitment on woman volunteers through Women Build, a program for women who want to learn construction skills while building homes and helping communities.
Women Build projects, which include all training for construction newbies, are held across the United States year-round and in more than 30 countries worldwide.
Upcoming Women Build projects are kicking off this weekend in Warrenton, Virginia and Slidell, Louisiana. For more information about Women Build, visit http://www.habitat.org/wb/.
Habitat for Humanity is creating its first international eco-tourism community in Soran, Indonesia and you can be a part of it.
H4H is teaming up with Asia Pulp & Paper (APP) to establish a eco-tourism village made up of more than 420 homes and guest accommodations near Indonesia’s famous Prambana Temple. Does that sound intriguing at all? Because they are, of course, looking for some good help to move the project along.
Delta sure is working hard to be the airline we'd most want to marry. This fall, not only are they supporting Breast Cancer Awareness month, but their employees are also partnering with Habitat for Humanity to construct new homes and renovate others in 7 cities across the U.S. Right now, more than 2,600 Delta employees are helping out with the builds here, while 90 others will travel to Chile to build 15 houses in El Monte, an area near Santiago effected by February's earthquake.
Volunteers are working on homes in Atlanta, Boston, Cincinnati, Los Angeles, Memphis, Minneapolis/St. Paul and New York City. The houses are expected to be completed by the end of the month. In the meantime, Habitat is working on selecting families for each of the new homes.
