Cape Verdeans of the Carolinas Association

Founded in January 2014, the Cape Verdeans of the Carolinas Association (CVC) is committed to preserving and promoting the culture of the Republic of Cabo Verde in North and South Carolina. The Association serves as a vehicle of engagement and support among the Cape Verdean population in these two states. Additionally, it aims to enlighten all interested people in learning more about this small West African island nation, by utilizing appropriate tools that shed positive attention on and awareness of Cabo Verde’s vibrant cultural traditions. CVC also seeks to foster an active and substantive charitable connection to Cabo Verde as advocates of children and education. The Cape Verdeans of the Carolinas Association hopes to contribute to the increasing multiculturalism of the Carolinas.
