Don’t miss the opportunity to apply for a grant from the Power to Change (P2C) Fund. P2C is a re-granting mechanism from the World YWCA to YWCAs in developing countries globally that is designed to help develop women’s, young women’s and girls’ leadership, while advancing social change around the world.

Only affiliated YWCA Member Associations from developing countries (see list here) can apply, and you must fulfil stringent guidelines and application procedures.

We will prioritise P2C grants for affiliated Member Associations who:

  • Show how they will share and replicate project experiences with YWCAs and other partners;
  • Fully complete the application form (all requirements fulfilled), including providing a detailed budget and work plan;
