Who we are

YFCA is a leading, independent and neutral non-governmental organization that works nationwide at different levels to promote equitable and sustainable development, humanitarian response, and other relevant interventions for a better life and wellbeing of communities and individuals. YFCA is working alongside the government, local and international partners, and urban and rural communities in an endeavor to complement the efforts of other actors and stakeholders who work towards common purposes.
Since the mid-seventies of the last century, YFCA has been playing a substantial role in advocating vulnerable groups' concerns to the government, policy makers and program implementers in addition to encouraging active participation of civil societies and stakeholders at the community level. YFCA has also emerged as a major support institution for civil society organizations working for social change with national and local actors at the grassroots level.
