We support young women's leadership, safe spaces, sexuality & health, and economic independence.


The YWCA works right across the country.

We're advocating for equal pay, providing micro-finance for women entrepreneurs, running leadership programmes for young women, offering emergency accommodation for people in need, operating hostels, and so much more.


We're part of the largest women's movement in the world, founded over 160 years ago.

World YWCA is in 120 countries, reaching over 25 million women. 

YWCA has been active in Aotearoa New Zealand since 1878.
