Y Care International has opportunities for you to do something exceptional in 2019, all the while raising money for us!

Our vision is a just world, free from poverty, where all young people can fulfil their potential. Working with a unique network of YMCA’s in 15 of the worlds poorest countries, we help over 59,000 young people into business and out of poverty, sustainably each year.
