Who We Are

C2V headquarters are located domestically in Los Angles, California, and provide Mental health services that include emotional, psychological, and social well-being. The Village of Abiriba in Abia State is the International Home of C2V, and is actively involved in enhancing lives through four sectors.  Each initiative receives Tax-deductible Donations year-round, as each addresses a social issue that impacts the Village, daily.

City2Village International Initiative (C2V)

is a federally recognized 501(c)3 nonprofit with a singular focus to Empower Members of the Community … and Our Community extends from Los Angeles, through Atlanta, across the Atlantic Ocean to Abia State, Nigeria.

 

C2V's International effort cultivates connection and endeavors to enrich the lives of women and families in Nigeria by providing essential hygiene items (difficult to access and costly when in arms reach), mitigating food scarcity by hosting community food distribution events, supporting academic retention, and supporting the continuity of families specifically led by widows.

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 lives.

Dr. Carter-Eme is a licensed Clinical Psychologist dedicated to the empowerment and elevation of women, and overall enhancement of the community. She is an educator, mentor, and advocate for women, in America and Nigeria.
