128 YEARS OF SERVICE - 1875-2003

The YWCA of Bombay in the 128 years since its conception continues to establish itself as a torch bearer for the empowerment of girls & women irrespective of age, caste of creed. “By Love serve One Another”- the motto of the YWCA, has been the driving force behind the numerous developmental programmes & projects to ensure social transformation / nation building based on the ideals of justice, fraternity & upliftment of the marginalised.  

Asha Kiran of Bombay YWCA caters not only to women & children but also elderly by providing them with a forum to interact & fulfill their social & economic needs.  

In the age of working women, providing residence to them is the need of hour.

In the addition there are guest rooms for women on the business & employment travel, day care facility for children of working mothers. Accommodation is also given to women in the need of emergency shelter. A counseling & crisis center provides a comforting support and help to women in distress.
