Study of the YWCA of India, Burma and Ceylon, circa 1930
Scope and Contents
As part of an international cooperative initiative between the YWCA and the YMCA, surveys ore conducted of associations around the world to gain knowledge and context of their work and understanding of the needs of the people. The surveys can then be used to inform future projects and identify opportunities for development. The study of the YWCA of India, Burma and Ceylon is divided into two parts. The first focuses of the social and environmental context in which it works and the second on the functions of the organization in India.
