WORKING WOMEN’S HOSTEL CHANDIGARH

Located in the picturesque and well maintained city of Chandigarh, the Working Women’s Hostel came into existence in the late 70s in Sector B, one of the posh localities of the city. The land on which the building was erected was donated to the YWCA. Noting the need for a working women’s hostel, the land was accordingly utilized. The hostel provides accommodation for 60 women.

Pipal Chhaya Community Centre, Delhi

The ‘Pipal Chhaya’ Community Centre in Trilokpuri, Delhi emerged following the need to reach out to more than 1,000 families who were removed from West Delhi. In 1976, the Municipal Committee of Delhi JJ Slum wing provided 150sq m of land in response to the the YWCA of India’s appeal to continue working with these displaced families. A Building was constructed - later reconstructed in June 2013 - and the YWCA of India started to address issues of relief, counselling, shelter and skill development for women and children. The locality has serious issues of crime and drug abuse. To combat this, the YWCA provides a safe space to the few women and children who walk into its doors. The Project currently runs a Montessori curriculum Day Care centre for Children; Remedial classes for about 35 older children where they are also taught life skill sessions exposing them to various concerns and issues; sewing courses affiliated with the Singer Company, a beauty culture training course and a Mehendi course. A few trained women at the centre come in regularly to make colourful bags, pouches, quilts & quilt covers that are sold to provide a regular income for them and their families.
