Additionally, mothers can also join us for other upskilling programmes (e.g., digital literacy) and journey with a group of like-minded women who come from similar backgrounds in our continuous support group – Empowering Circles – initiative that is led by mothers for mothers.

YWCA can continue its goal of serving mothers from marginalised backgrounds through the Empowering Mums programme due to the generous contributions of our sponsors.

YWCA would also like to express our heartfelt gratitude to the donor behind the Bamboo Lotus Fund for supporting our women empowerment efforts.
