World's YWCA, 1928-1929

Scope and Contents

Documents concerning the international conferences of the World Young Women's Christian Associations in Berlin, Beirut, Budapest and Hoddeston. Conferences are held to unite the national associations under common purpose and aim, discuss future plans and to make decisions affecting the international organizations. In 1928-1929 the discussions center on the role of the association in the changing political, economic and social conditions around the world. The role of Christianity in this work is also discussed and national associations bring updates regarding YWCA activity in their countries. In addition, the conferences may discuss the relationship of the YWCA to other organizations, the relationship between the many parts of the World YWCA to each other and to national associations and the relationship of the church to the World YWCA.
