The Women Build Blueprint:
The objective: Breaking the cycle of poverty for 16 Toronto families, and generating thousands of new donors and volunteers to increase our ongoing build capacity.
The scope: 16 Energy Star® homes
The target: $2 million dollars
The launch: May 10, 2008 (Mother's Day)
The build blitz: Scheduled for May 1st through May 9th, 2009. A Women Build Blitz; thousands of Toronto women uniting to build homes and hope in their community.
The build site: Hainford St. (Lawrence Ave. and Manse Rd.)

We would like to give our wholehearted support to Habitat for Humanity which is a wonderful cause after our own heart. Our president, Elida Huignard has most generously volunteered her services as a Crew Leader and has already worked her first shift last week. She will be reporting on her experiences and the general progress of the project in our upcoming posts on our forum. Look for the exciting details!

Wo-built Inc. would like to congratulate Habitat for Humanity for a great project and offer our unconditional support for a worthy cause.

Lonya is the staff writer for Wo-Built Inc.
On May 1st – 9th, Habitat for Humanity Toronto will host thousands of women for its Women Build initiative. These women will come together to build homes with low income families in the West Hill area of Scarborough. The Women Build is all about the solidarity of women, and the power to change the lives of those in need. It is also a tangible way for women to directly help other women. This Blitz Build will go down in Habitat for Humanity history as the largest Women Build in Canada, and our goal is to raise $2 million dollars.
