Who is the European Young Women's Christian Association?


We work for stronger youth perspective, stronger gender perspective and stronger network for women within the Churches in Europe.

We strive to communicate and share news and knowledge of local, national YWCA´s programs and projects.

We want to empower women to make a difference.


The European YWCA represents YWCAs in 27 countries in Europe. In all of these countries women and girls take action in their local community.

But Europe is not enough! EYWCA is member of the World YWCA.

There are thousands who commit their involvement to the YWCA purpose!

Every second year representatives of the associated members meet at the General Assembly.
