„YMCA Europe is a working fellowship to strengthen movements where people grow in body, mind and spirit.“
The YMCA Europe Roots for Reconciliation initiative was launched in 2007 as the logical continuation to its Movement Development support to the YMCAs in the region of Caucasus, yet with more programmatic focus.
The expected outcome of the project is the strengthening of the YMCA Movement in the Caucasus, as a mass-membership, ecumenical network standing for integrity of creation, peace and justice.
