logo_standardThe YWCA Week without Violence is an annual global campaign to end the scourge of violence against women and girls. Throughout the week activities focus on raising awareness, promoting attitude change and enabling individuals and organisations to begin positive actions towards ending violence in their communities. Every year during the third week of October, YWCAs from all over the world promote and encourage a Week without Violence – a week long series of community events promoting diverse approaches to creating a world free of violence. The YWCA Week without Violence encourages communities to think and act towards a world without violence.

To facilitate your campaigning work we have prepared a toolkit for you to use in the run up to the global week of action. Feel free to use it, and to get back to us with questions or suggestions. We will prepare a Spanish version of the toolkit soon.

Please, keep checking this page for more tools and information.
