WHAT IS NATIONAL WOMEN BUILD?
Developed through the partnership between Lowe’s and Habitat for Humanity, Women Build challenges women to devote at least one day to the effort to eliminate poverty housing. The event is an Initiative of Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build program, underwritten by Lowe’s, which brings women from all walks of life together to learn construction and then use those skills to build simple, decent, affordable houses.

MEET THE WOMEN BUILD FAMILY

Lederle Family


The Lederle Family

Kyle and her two children love all things outdoors including mushroom hunting, boating, and cooking out with friends. They are looking forward to celebrating the holidays in their new home together and inviting loved ones over to enjoy the festivities with them.

When Kyle was 16 years old, her mother and sister moved into a Habitat home. She experienced first-hand what it meant for her family to have safe, decent housing. The stability led to her finishing school and going on to becoming a Dental Assistant. It gave her a very strong work ethic and there isn’t anything that is going to stand in her way of achieving a goal. She is excited and proud to be able to provide a home for her two children the way her mother had when she was young.

Aniyah (7) is all girl and loves gymnastics, board games and Justin Bieber. She love to spend time with all of her cousins.

Kingston (3) loves anything to do with playing ball and superheros.

WHAT IS GIRLS BUILD?
Girls Build is a complete, ready-to-use curriculum for educators and youth leaders of girls ages 10 to 12. At this age, children move beyond simple acceptance of their surroundings and begin to develop an awareness of the circumstances that impact their lives. The Girls Build curriculum won an American Inhouse Design award because its layout is easy to follow, teach, implement and replicate.

The program kits teach girls

  • The importance of getting involved in their local communities.
  • The reality of poverty housing.
  • How Habitat works to build homes with partner families.
  • The benefits of homeownership and safe neighborhoods.
