YWCA Week Without Violence

The YWCA strives for a world without violence. A world where women walk the streets at night without fear. A society where people need not be burdened with the fear of aggression. Communities where female genital mutilation, domestic violence and rape are faded memories of a long gone era. This is the vision of the global movement of YWCAs. This is what the YWCA Week Without Violence works to achieve. The YWCA Week Without Violence is an annual global campaign to stop violence in all its forms. Throughout the week activities focus on raising awareness, promoting attitude change and enabling individuals and organisations to begin positive actions towards ending violence in their communities.
