Raised by 33 people in 8 months
City2Village International Initiative is a grassroots nonprofit organization committed to the service and elevation of women, both domestic and abroad.

We are currently hosting our Annual Donation Project which endeavors to provide 500 Feminine Gift Totes to The Beautiful Women of Abiriba. The Village of Abiriba is locatated in Abia State, Nigeria.

The Project obtains tangible donations and financial contributions to provide 500 Feminine Gift Totes which also includes, staple food items and a food preparation tool. The donated items are daily use items, particularly to support health and feminine hygiene -  for example, bar soap, sanitary napkins, toothpaste, feminine wipes, etc.  Staple items include rice and beans, and the goal is to expand to include sardines and powdered milk. 

C2Vii Gift Tote GOAL is to include the following items …

1 Reusable Tote Bag
2 Always Ultra Thin Sanitary Pads w/wings (full size package)
2 Dove Bar Soaps (full size)
2 Dove Antiperspirant Deodorant 2.6oz
2 Toothpastes (full size)
4 Toothbrushes
1 Vaseline 1.75oz or 2.5oz
2 Cottonelle Hygiene Wipes 42 or 84 count
1 OXO Y-shaped (yam/potato) Peeler
1 Bag of Rice (gallon Ziploc bag/purchase in Nigeria)
1 Bag of Beans (gallon Ziploc bag/purchase in Nigeria)
* indicated name brands are suggested, not required ... see website FAQ's

Many of the hygiene items, which are easily taken for granted in America, are frequently considered a luxury in Abiriba and other villages.  Sanitary pads, feminine wipes, fluorinated toothpaste are all items which can be quite challenging to acquire in the village - and costly when accessible. 

Rice & Beans ... C2Vii has identified a specific quantity of rice and beans for purchase and distribution; 20-50lbs Bags of Rice and 20-50lbs Bags of Beans. Donors have the option of contributing specifically to this objective. The Rice & Beans will be purchased and individually bagged in Nigeria one to two weeks prior to the December event (depending on our arrival).  If your contribution - either whole or in part - is for rice and beans, please include a comment indicating your preference with submission of your donation, and it will be allotted accordingly.

Through GIFTING these items - hygiene and food - the lives of African Women are enriched, and we fortify their efforts to care for their families.

Some of the most significant and rewarding personal life experiences include the ability to connect with another human being, and enhance another life. This is the sole purpose of City2Village – to connect with, and enhance the lives of women.  We invite you to Join C2Vii in our effort to enhance the lives of Abiriba Women ... our foundational belief is, "When women are enhanced, the Family is enhanced."  Your consideration of this project is genuinely heartfelt, and needed.

C2Vii annual donation project operates solely by the generosity of donors. The '2017 Donation Campaign is June 15th thru September 16th ... which will include a Drop-Off Event & Celebration of Abiriba Culture on Saturday, August 5th.  Additional information regarding donation opportunities, the organization and the Drop-off/Celebration Event can be found on our website →

In Nigeria's National Colors, BELLS of GENEROSITY Ring with EACH Donation!

Your support of this worthy project promotes health  and hygiene, and provides Immeasurable Validation of Womanhood.
