Help for Boa Vista is a non-profit association that supports the most needy people in the Cape Verde Islands, especially in Boa Vista, with donations in objects / materials, non-perishable food or money. The founders visited Cape Verde for the first time in 2013, specifically Boa Vista, and saw that there were many people who needed help.
Between 2013 and 2017 they visited Boa Vista a few more times and brought donations that were distributed in one of the poorest villages on the island. Later, they brought a container with more donations that also included supplies for schools and kindergartens. In 2017, they founded this association with the intention of helping these poor people. Boa Vista is the easternmost island and the third largest of the ten islands of Cape Verde, located closest to the African continent and the Sahara desert. It is one of the driest and flattest islands in the archipelago.
