World YWCA Day

Since 1947, YWCAs have taken one day out of the year to affirm their involvement in a global movement of women and girls working for justice, peace, health, human dignity, freedom and care for the environment. Over time, that day has come to be known as World YWCA Day and is celebrated every year on April 24.

The YWCA Round the World Breakfast has been a vital part of day’s events since 2003, serving to connect YWCAs around the world and raise awareness of our global impact on the lives of women and girls.
