Documents concerning the YWCA of India. The YWCA of the U.S.A. provides support to the YWCA of India through finances, advisory relationship and by sending American secretaries to work in India. The 1959 convention report documents the proceedings of the convention including department and committee reports, discussion groups and addresses. The convention is a chance for the women of the YWCA of India to meet and discuss the issues affecting women of India, the state of the YWCA of India and the role of a Christian Women's organization in national and international social and political issues.
