As the largest organisation of its kind, we engage millions of women around the world to advocate for gender responsive policies and practices that underscore women’s rights as human rights.
The World YWCA is practiced at the art of being agile and creative in response to grave challenges– some that seem woven like threads through the fabric of our lives, and those that threaten to unravel it. Our leaders provide the required care, support, resources and safe spaces needed for girls, young women and women on the ground. YWCA responds to the unique needs of every community it serves, and the unique challenges of every era.
The current COVID-19 pandemic is a threat to what we know, affecting everyone, everywhere, somehow and the YWCA is here to be a part of the global response.
