Habitat for Humanity Cornwall & The Counties is holding a Build Like A Girl event. The build is set for July 27 and 28 in Williamsburg. Women can pledge $50 for a two-hour build event. Build Projects & Finance Administrator Joanne Mohamed says women are assets to the project.

Participants will be served treats and can win prizes. The Williamsburg home is going to a family of five, with three young kids. Habitat does not ask for a down payment and there is zero per cent interest on the mortgage. Mohamed says the process is about paying it forward.

The family of five is currently renting and this will be their first home. This project is the 13th build for Cornwall & The Counties chapter of Habitat. To take part in the Build Like A Girl event, contact Mohamed directly by emailing joanne@habitatcornwall.org. For more information, click here.
