every woman has the strength to build a brighter future
The Build Her Up Campaign seeks to empower women across Sri Lanka who are in need of a safe place to call home.This campaign aims to engage the community and potential volunteers and partners to address the housing challenges faced by women across Sri Lanka, by bringing together women from all walks of life to advocate for safe, secure and affordable housing.
This campaign encourages females from all walks of life to tell the world what having a safe and decent home means to them, and to encourage that conversation to keep growing among their communities. This campaign also reaches towards telling the inspiring stories of the females supported by Habitat Sri Lanka, who we refer to as our “Habitat Power Women”.
“This Habitat home is a dream come true for our family. I know my family will be safe in this house. I have epilepsy and the previous wooden shack we lived in provided little protection to us during the rainy season. I believe this new home is the beginning of a brand-new chapter in our lives.”Sudarshani, 2017
