MOJO Homes provides $20,000 to improve construction skills for women

MOJO Homes has partnered with award-winning community organisation Out(fit) to provide funding to help empower women into careers in the Built Environment Industry. 

Out(fit), which is based at the University of Newcastle, has been responsible for delivering a range of important community projects. 

Design Build Project Officer – Out(fit) Hannah Cheetham said being able to purchase industry-relevant tools and equipment allows Out(fit) to expand our scope of services, providing career-ready tool and building training to our volunteers.

“It’s such a great feeling to know that we are building resilience and self-sufficiency into our initiative. We love what we do, and it’s wonderful that MOJO Homes can also see the value we bring our community.” 

The support by MOJO has funded $10,000 in new tools, provided $4,000 to fit out a trailer and Ute with equipment racks, funded PPE equipment and educational resources to  the value of $6,000. 

“The work Out(fit) has delivered in the community to date is to be applauded. We see the value they are contributing to the community particularly across education, domestic violence and homelessness in the Hunter region and regional NSW, “.

“MOJO is delighted to be supporting Out(fit) with future projects by providing the tools and education materials to train more women in the field of construction.” 

“We are also looking forward to getting our staff engaged in future working bee projects,”.

MOJO is part of the NEX Building Group which has developed the NEX Building Group Charitable Foundation to fund community projects across the key pillars of Education, Youth and Research.  

Out(fit) is an organisation that aligns perfectly with the objectives of MOJO Homes and the NEX Building Group Charitable Foundation.
