To enhance the quality of life and empower women affected by, or "at risk" for domestic violence

BWCVI is a 501 C3; non-profit foundation established to support and address the needs of battered women living in the Cape Verde Islands. This foundation will be used to build a comprehensive center on the island of Fogo and extend to all 9 islands in the near future.

We have exceeded some of our goals by receiving financial and professional support from the following donors since our inception in late 2007:

Church of Nazarene, Fogo
Don Wright, Franchise Owner
Doug Mott, Web Designer
Government of Cape Verde
and many private donors and supporters of BWCVI!

4. Walk in Counseling: Short Term counseling will be available in an emergency.
