YWCA of Palestine (Palestine)

The YWCA of Palestine is an ecumenical grassroots movement serving women of all faiths.

It is affiliated with the World YWCA, which unites 25 million women and girls in over 100 countries. The YWCA derives its commitment of service from its Christian faith and the motto is “With Love Serve One Another”  The main aims are to promote women's full and equal participation at all levels of society through leadership opportunities and training; to work for social and economic justice through development and advocacy programs; and to mobilize women's collective power for action on issues of vital concern: women's rights, justice, equality, freedom, the dignity of human beings and integrity of their environment. Programs include vocational training programs; training courses in Computer skills, hairdressing and language; children and youth activities such as summer camps; social and cultural activities; income generating projects; and advocacy work in areas such as human rights.  The YWCA headquarters are in Jerusalem. There are three local associations in Jerusalem, Jericho and Ramallah, and three centers in refugee camps: Aqabat Jabr, Jalazone and Kalandia.
