World YWCA/Enabling Economic Empowerment and Justice for Women in Conflict and Post Conflict Countries


World Young Women's Christian Association (World YWCA) is a global network of women leading social and economic change in over 120 countries worldwide. World YWCA advocates for peace, justice, human rights and care for the environment and has been at the forefront of raising the status of women for more than a century. World YWCA requests for support towards this programme: "Enabling Economic Empowerment and Justice for Women in Conflict and Post-Conflict Countries". The programme will provide women and girls at YWCAs in selected conflict and post-conflict countries with overall interventions and capacity building activities designed to: 1 Reduce poverty by economically empowering women and girls and providing them with necessary skills to obtain employment; 2 enable the empowered women and young women to participate fully and effectively in their governments' peace-building, reconstruction, recovery and development processes at all decision-making levels; and 3 enable the empowered women and young women to advocate for economic justice, an equitable allocation of resources, and women's rights on national and global levels. World YWCA recognizes that by strengthening the status of women, we can promote economic development and well-being for all.
