The Community Foundation of WNC Women for Women Giving Circle Makes Historic Commitment to Prevent Violence

Helpmate, Our VOICE, Mountain Child Advocacy Center and Pisgah Legal are launching a long term plan to prevent domestic violence, sexual violence and child abuse in our community!

We are full of gratitude for the Women for Women Giving Circle and everyone that celebrated this historic moment in our community at the Power of the Purse Luncheon last week. In partnership with Our VOICE, Mountain Child Advocacy and Pisgah Legal, we are launching a long term, comprehensive prevention plan to eradicate domestic and sexual violence and child abuse in our community.

This plan is an in-depth, community-wide prevention plan to truly get to the root of the problem and stop violence before it happens. We can’t thank the Women for Women Giving Circle enough – your generosity and true dedication to our community is a gift to generations to come. Together, we are making history.  Click here to visit  website

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
