Summary

Engage in our event on ending Gender-Based Violence! Join as to amplify the cause, and make a difference!

Detailed description


Every year, the United Nations Women spotlights the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence. This annual international campaign kicks off with The International Day for The Elimination of Violence against Women on the 25th of November and runs until Human Rights Day on the 10th of December.


As part of YWCA Kuala Lumpur’s 110th anniversary celebrations and in conjunction with the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence, we are organising a UNiTE Walk and Panel Talk to create awareness of a world free from gender-based violence. The UNITE Campaign calls on people everywhere to show how much they care about ending violence against women and girls.


Together with Soroptimist International and the Girl Guides of KL, we can create awareness and advocate change to prevent family violence and violence against women & girls. People of all genders are welcome to our UNiTE walk.


Bring your friends, family, and colleagues along to join us! Together we can build a better tomorrow!

About Young Womens' Christian Association of Kuala Lumpur (YWCA KL)

The YWCA works for the development of women and girls irrespective of race, religion, culture, language and socio-economic circumstances.

The YWCA of Kuala Lumpur is part of a worldwide movement for women’s development founded in the United Kingdom in 1855 by Emma Roberts & Mary Jane Kinnaird, who conceived the idea of a women’s hostel - a safe place in the city where women primarily nurses from the countryside could grow in spirit and fellowship, in preparation for duty during the Crimean War. This movement would soon spread worldwide bringing a message of empowerment and hope.

Some of the projects run by YWCA KL today include a shelter for women in crisis based in Klang, a pre-school kindergarten for underprivileged children in Glenmarie and an on-site vocational school for underprivileged young women in KL called the VTOC which stands for Vocational Training Opportunity Centre.

In 1998, the YWCA Kuala Lumpur set up the Vocational Training Opportunity Centre (VTOC) to provide much needed skills training for underprivileged young women and girls from economically disadvantaged families.
