Women Build Construction Leadership training comes to Winnipeg

Women Build Construction Leadership training comes to WinnipegWomen Build Construction Leadership training coordinated and facilitated by Habitat International, will be held outside the United States for the first time, with the City of Winnipeg being the privileged host.

During the past few years there have been a number of Winnipeg Women Build construction volunteers interested in taking this training, but the necessary time and expenses prevented them from travelling to the United States.

The local Women Build is thrilled to have the training come to Winnipeg.

Four Winnipeg volunteers have already registered for the course which runs from September 11th to September 17th. The training involves both classroom work and practical sessions on a build site. Once the participants graduate from the course, they will have the skills and confidence to read blue prints and lead teams of volunteers to fully construct a home. Winnipeg Women Build already has incredibly strong leadership and this training will bring even more women into its leadership team, helping Women Build to continue to raise their skills, and walls!

The local Women Build committee is excited to host other women travelling to Winnipeg from across North America to take this training. The committee is making plans so the visitors get a warm Winnipeg welcome.
