Women + Land Access: A Memphis Habitat Women Build Webinar
Thursday, July 22 at 11 a.m. CT | Zoom

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Memphis believes that everyone, everywhere should have a safe, decent and affordable place to live.

Memphis Habitat supports Habitat for Humanity International’s tithe program, which helps families around the world, in some of the most under-resourced places, secure housing to stand on their own and build stronger, more stable communities.

Memphis Habitat tithes support to Habitat Nepal, where women face land tenure insecurity and unequal land rights. Less than 20% of women in Nepal own property, in part because land is traditionally passed down among male family members, leaving women who are widowed, divorced, separated, or unmarried vulnerable to being forced out of homes and off their land. Habitat Nepal helps landless families secure formal land tenure and promotes gender equality by including women’s names on the land titles.

During this webinar, our panel will discuss Habitat’s international work, how Memphis Habitat and other affiliates support that work, and a sample of the housing issues that women face internationally through the work of Habitat Nepal.

Our participants will include:
• Susan Yow
Director, Affiliate Tithe and Global Engagement, Habitat for Humanity International
• Christy Stickney
National Director, Habitat for Humanity International – Nepal
• Dwayne Spencer
President & CEO, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Memphis
• Chris Reeder Young (moderator)
Senior Research & Evaluation Manager, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Memphis
