Centro das Mulheres do Cabo (Women’s Center of Cabo) is a feminist organization based in the city of Cabo de Santo Agostinho, in the metropolitan area of Recife, Brazil. They work with the community to fight gender and race based violence and to promote women’s and youth rights.
They have worked for the development of this community for more than 30 years, with important achievements in terms of fighting violence against women and promoting their rights. Communication has always been an important aspect of their work as they try to engage the community in different ways, including two radio shows.
Sadly, the city of Cabo de Santo Agostinho was pointed as number one in terms of vulnerability of the youth in Brazil. The Women’s Center wants to change that reality by engaging the youth socially and politically and give them the tools to create a better future for themselves and their children. This TIE campaign will help them communicate properly with the youth and encourage them to become protagonists of their own stories and take the actions to change their reality.
