Latest Case Stories

Our Partners and Supports

It is a lot working with and volunteering for YWCA Ethiopia and it is feels like home. Technically, I am an African youth and still learning more about youth. For this, it is YWCA that enhanced my skill set and gave all opportunity how to be a youth while working with them. I am glad to be hear and passionate to do my best for the wellbeing of young women out there facing the hardest challenge.


Program Director

YWCA, with it's summer program, gives a head start to underprivileged students in their education. Volunteers in the program obtain a multitude of skills from leadership to teamwork. YWCA has helped me become more involved in my community and make great friends.
