Habitat planning Women Build day May 1; training sessions begin Feb. 6

The WKU Campus Chapter of Habitat for Humanity along with Warren County Habitat for Humanity will be leading a Women Build day May 1 at a house being constructed in Warren County.

Women Build is Habitat’s volunteer program for women who want to learn construction skills and make a difference by building homes and communities. Women Build projects are regularly held by Habitat affiliates across the United States and by Habitat organizations around the world. Women at these builds have furthered Habitat’s home-building mission by helping to construct more than 1,500 houses.

After leading this Women Build day, WKU’s award-winning Habitat for Humanity chapter hopes to be the first campus chapter in the nation to lead a Women Build House.

As part of the Women Build day, training will be provided. No construction experience is necessary, but four non-mandatory training sessions will be offered for women who want to participate in the May 1 event.

The training sessions will be held from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Lowe’s in Bowling Green on the following dates: Feb. 6, hand tools; Feb. 20, basic framing; March 6, siding; April 24, roofing.

For more information on this project or to sign up, contact construction coordinator Noah Onkst at (270) 745-2422 or email noah.onkst557@wku.edu.

Contact: Bryan Reaka, (270) 745-5946.
