Three Mi’kmaw women are helping build a brighter future for their community of Elsipogtog First Nation, one house at a time.
Olivia Gehue, Devonya Levi and Diana Augustine are carpenter apprentices and started working with a company called SheBuilds six months ago. So far they’ve helped build three houses in the community 91 km north of Moncton and earlier this week, they started building their fourth and fifth houses.
Gehue, 23, said building these homes is meaningful to her.
“It’s so important because I enjoy helping my community,” said Gehue.
“It’s a big factor in my life.” Full story here.
