KOLLAM YMCA in the service of humanity since 1924


The continuing basis of the work and witness of the Young Menís Christian Association is expressed in the PARIS BASIS, as adopted by the delegates of the First World Conference in Paris in 1855, and reaffirmed by the 6th World Council of YMCAs in 1973:

The Young Menís Christian Associations seek to unite those young men who, regarding Jesus Christ as their God and Saviour, according to the

Holy Scriptures, desire to be his disciples in their faith and in their life, and to associate their efforts for the extension of his Kingdom amongst young men.

The Paris Basis is the motto of the YMCA adopted in 1855 at Paris. The original text is reproduced here.
