THE STORY:

Help Empower Women to Fight Back Against Violence! The statistics are startling. One in every seven Ohio women is a survivor of rape; nearly 10,000 incidences of domestic violence were reported in Ohio in 2012; violence against women dominates the headlines in northeast Ohio. Violence against women is a problem; it's time we take a stand against it. It's time to empower women to fight back. It's time to make a difference. The Cleveland Anti-Female Violence Initiative is doing just that. We are taking a stand against female violence. By empowering women through self-defense scenario training, the Cleveland Anti-Female Violence Initiative (CAFVI) advocates for and trains women through real-world scenarios to fight back against attackers. But we need your help! To make this initiative a reality, we need help getting started. We are seeking $200,000 in tax deductible donations to build our facility and start building a community of empowered women. Here is what the funding will be used for: Purchase a building in central Cleveland Build-out facility to replicate real-life scenarios (Fight Rooms) Training Equipment Your donation today will help shape a better tomorrow. Together, we can make a difference. “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” ~Mahtma Gandhi Donating to this registered 501(c)(3) organization is a tax deductible charitable contribution.
