Join us on Saturday 22 April in celebration of World YWCA Day for a fundraising breakfast supporting Encore, an after-care program for women who have experienced breast cancer. Every year in April, YWCAs around the world commemorate World YWCA Day (April 24), highlighting the history and achievements of the global YWCA movement.
In 2003, the YWCA of Australia held the first annual YWCA Round the World Breakfast. Over a 24-hour period, from country to country, and continent to continent, YWCAs in over 40 countries participated in the biggest breakfast of the year. The World YWCA Council recommended that the Round the World Breakfast be continued annually to create awareness of the World YWCA and raise funds for programs empowering women to lead their communities.
The theme of this year’s World YWCA Day is Rise Up: Support and Invest in Young Women’s Rights. In keeping with this global theme, Daniella Colicchio will report on her experience at the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (CSW61), held in New York from the 13-24 March, 2017. Our CEO, Liz Forsyth, will provide an update on the YWCA National Merger Project and a guest speaker from YWCA Adelaide’s Encore program will discuss the importance of after-care services for women who have experienced breast cancer.
Held in the eclectic and welcoming space at Mama Jambo, we invite our YWCA Adelaide members and friends to gather over a delicious buffet breakfast, and connect with each other and the work of the YWCA. Funds raised from this event will support the Encore program.
