Habitat for Humanity’s National Women Build Week is help annually the week or two before Mother’s Day. This year, Honolulu Habitat for Humanity held two build days to support this initiative. One of BASIC’s main missions is to encourage women to explore the carpentry trade, so this was right up our alley. On Saturday, May 7, 2016, four BASIC members (CJ Tadeo, Kaela Nishimura, Jacqueline Canos and April Acquavella) joined other women at the Kaniho Build. CJ and Kaela are two Honolulu Community College Carpentry Tech Program alumni who are full-time carpenters, and Jacqueline and April are set to graduate from the same carpentry program in May. Spending a Saturday in the hot sun stripping concrete forms after a weeklong of full-time work or school is not always easy, but our women never shy away from meaningful hard work. Thank you for coming out! Your dedication, leadership and enthusiasm is commendable!
