Basis: Faith in God the Father Almighty and in Jesus Christ, His only son, our Lord and Saviour and in the Holy Spirit.
Aim: The YWCA of Trivandrum rooted in Christian faith and subscribing to the Basis as stated above, endeavours to promote the full development of women and girls irrespective of race, culture or creed.

The YWCA of Trivandrum offers a safe dwelling place for ladies above the age of 55.
The idea of a Hostel and not an Old Age Home for senior women may be a new one.
But it is the need of the hour. Around us there are many women living alone in individual houses constantly worrying about their health and safety. To such women this Hostel is a boon. There is short term and long term stay offered. Read more about it in Our Services.
