Celebrate International Womens’ Day 2018 in the most rewarding way – helping a family break the cycle of poverty with your own hands.
Join a team of like-minded women as we venture to Nepal to build a home for a family in need. This unforgettable week will give the partner family long-term shelter and security for the future. This is a truly unique opportunity to not just see the world, but to help change it.
Working alongside the family and the wider community, you’ll complete tasks such as laying cement blocks, mixing cement, rendering, and building the outdoor toilet. As you get your hands dirty and see the house take shape around you, you’ll see the impact that your hard work has made and feel a great sense of pride as a result.
You will laugh, cry, make amazing friends and have memories that will last a lifetime.

The magnitude-7.8 earthquake that struck Nepal on the 25th of April 2015 caused serious damage and significant loss of life.
Habitat for Humanity is assisting earthquake affected families in constructing new homes through owner-driven approach. Since the earthquake, thousands of families are still living in temporary shelters.
The Women’s Build will play an instrumental role in helping Nepalese families get back on their feet.
