In her blog Sheila shares about her work with Habitat for Humanity. She discusses the Habitat for Humanity Project, Women Build, an initiative, which brings together women leaders and achievers to empower underprivileged women. Our Women Build events provide the opportunity for women to take a proactive step in serving their communities sometimes through entrepreneurship. Women helping women sends a positive and powerful message. Through their interaction with the women leaders, the disadvantaged women are shown an example of how they too can make a change and step forward to create a better life for themselves and their families.
