YMCA in India
Way back in the year 1857, the first YMCA in India was started at the then capital of India, Calcutta. Next to the Trivandrum YMCA founded in 1873, the Bombay YMCA was launched in 1875. The first National Conference of YMCAs in India held in Madras in 1891 formed the National Council of YMCAs in India. From the 35 Associations functioning in India then the number of YMCAs in India has now risen to 600 with a total membership of about 350,000, both men and women.
The headquarters of the National Council of YMCAs was shifted from Madras to Calcutta in May 1902 and in 1964 it was shifted to New Delhi, its present location. The National Council of YMCAs is affiliated to the Asia and Pacific Alliance of YMCAs which functions from Hong Kong and has a membership of 27 countries. The Indian YMCA is the second largest network in the world after the U.S.A. and is part of the global YMCA fraternity which is known as World Alliance of YMCAs, headquartered in Geneva with 125 member countries.
