2016 marked the beginning of a new journey for the World YWCA as we began to focus more strongly on transforming power structures, while empowering young women and advocating for gender equality globally.

In 2016, we reached 35 million women, young women and girls globally. We also empowered six million women around the world to transform power structures through training, social media, advocacy events and other programmes.
