Y Care International is the international relief and development agency of the YMCA movement in the UK and Ireland.
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is a crisis unfolding in front of our very eyes, and a tragedy for the young people and their communities most impacted.
Y Care International is supporting YMCA Europe in an urgent appeal in response to the crisis, and to ensure that vital humanitarian assistance is available to those who need it.
We’re creating opportunities for young people to help themselves out of poverty
• We help young people help themselves out of poverty, by finding jobs or setting up businesses
• We work with young men and women aged 15-24 made vulnerable by poverty, inequality and injustice
• We enable young people in the UK and internationally to make change as active citizens
• We work with a unique network of YMCAs and other partners in 15 of the poorest countries – mainly in Africa as well as Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East
By 2020, we will create opportunities for over 60,000 vulnerable young women and men and their communities every year through enterprise and employment.
