Are you ready and willing to support and promote the mission and purpose of the YWCA of Tanzania? Become a member of the YWCA and join the largest and oldest women’s ecumenical movement in the world!

YWCA Membership gives you access to a community of women and youth who are committed to bringing about social change for the betterment of society. Every branch of the YWCA operates it's own programs and is always looking for new members to participate in and lead activities.

Members also have the opportunity to become YWCA leaders and influence our organizational strategies and priorities.

Contact your local YWCA Branch to become a member. (Please note there is no membership at the YWCA Headquarters, Dar es Salaam). Can't find a Branch near you, why not start your own local YWCA Branch!
