Help us to connect women who have suffered gender-based violence with volunteer therapists and lawyers.

Did you know that 606 women suffer from domestic violence every day in Brazil? That here 40% of femicides happen at home? And that every 11 minutes a woman is raped in our country? A problem that big cannot wait another second!

Since 2016, we've connected over 8,000 women suffering gender-based violence to our network of 5,500 volunteers psychologists and lawyers in over 900 cities in the 27 states of Brazil! Seeing how this work affects the life of each woman we help is what inspires us to keep going.

This is possible because of thousands of people who donate time, work and financial resources to support Mapa do Acolhimento. With new challenges such as the increase in domestic violence during Covid-19, and fixed costs of our staff and operation, we need support from the people who believe in our work.

To help, you can make a monthly or one-time donation and ensure that no woman is left helpless in a situation of violence!

Mapa is a project of NOSSAS, a Brazilian NGO with 501c3 equivalency status and yearly audited financials. You can learn more about NOSSAS on our website here.

"It was when I decided to use all of my strength to liberate myself that I found Mapa do Acolhimento. I was extremely well supported since the first contact, and received all the necessary attention and dedication.”

"With each consultation I got stronger and was able to solve my problems. Today, I can see that I am a beautiful and powerful woman capable of making my own decisions."

"I hope more women can be supported by you, and take back the reins of their lives, so that they can live and be happy however they please!”

"I had the chance to open up about intimate issues that I hadn't told anybody else about, and to slowly understand and close wounds.”
