We support and galvanize women’s and young women’s individual and collective power to champion social change and create opportunities to connect, mobilise, and inspire each other to take action.


World YWCA is the largest organisation of its kind, engaging millions of people each year. For over 160 years, World YWCA has been on the frontlines, investing in and prioritising the leadership development of young women and girls, advocating for issues that are key to pushing the gender justice agenda.

We know that when women lead, we can transform entire communities—and the world—for the better.
