The importance of a home
The most rewarding thing about Women Build is seeing lives transformed, confidence built and hope for a new future come to light! When we have a roof over our heads and a door to lock at night, families flourish. With a decent home, kids’ attendance at school increases dramatically, families are healthier and employment opportunities are far greater.
For many of us here in Hong Kong, a safe and decent home is something we take for granted, which is why it's so important to remember that this basic necessity is denied for many. I am so proud to be part of an organisation that works tirelessly to bring safe housing to families around the world.
What about men?
Men are very welcome and actually, my husband Kent was with us last Saturday! We strongly believe in bringing men and women together to empower women. This project is about uniting communities to serve the individuals who need our support most.
