On April 24 this year, World YWCA Day focused on how young women can transform, change the social and power structures and achieve gender equality.

Both women and young women had their own experiences and ways of expressing their rights. Women of different ages, cultures, identities and status all have the same experience of gender inequality. Now it is the time to use our voices and collective strength to create opportunities for young women in the YWCA movement, to promote their leadership in families, communities and elsewhere to influence power structures and work towards a world where justice and gender equality prevail.

Welcome to the local YWCA and join the world to celebrate World YWCA Day.

On February 17, YWCA of Taiwan invited new immigrant families to participate in the Lunar New Year holiday activities, in which 140 people spent the time happily together.

YWCA of Taiwan cooperated with the Lawrence S. Ting Memorial Fund in conducting this event to convey our maternal warmth and love to the new immigrant sisters.  The event had been carrying out for eight years. This year, we reviewed our past achievements, while the new immigrant sisters shared their changes after joining the YWCA movement and the photos about their parental home and performed on the stage, along with raffles and other activities.

A woman may have to raise children, take care of elderly relatives, earn money to support the family, and do domestic chores. In case of misfortune, she may encounter violence, divorce, financial difficulties, family members’ illness, and so on. No one can imagine how much pressure she has to bear, how much suffering makes her heart and soul exhausted, how many difficulties make her struggle. When it comes to the Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA), our services can ease or solve the problems faced by countless women and families. The YWCA bandages their wounds, wipes their tears, provides nourishment, irrigates their heart, ignites the light of hope for their life and accompanies them forward.

This brochure records six moving stories of the YWCA family. For more details, please ask us for the handbook.
