What's a tandem bike got to do with development?
Y Care International is the relief and development agency of the YMCA in the UK & Ireland. We’re passionate about working in partnership, and the power of young people, because we know it’s the best way of making change happen.
For too long, NGOs and charities have been telling communities what to do. But local people and communities know their situation best – and how to change things.
At Y Care International, we’re committed to working in partnership – in open and honest long-term relationships with YMCAs rooted in their local communities.
We support the young people who are leading change in their own communities – they sit in the driving seat, not us. We ride on the back seat – pedalling alongside them, being led by them so that they can transform their communities.
