The following is from Hong Kong Stamps’ webpage 2020 Stamps Issuing Programme and Introduction:

Founded in 1920, the Hong Kong Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA) was the first non – governmental organisation in Hong Kong with women as its main service clients. Today, the YWCA has grown into an integrated social service agency that offers diversified and people – oriented community services. In celebration of YWCA’s outstanding contributions over a hundred years, Hongkong Post is launching an issue of four stamps to mark such a momentous occasion. Designed with attractive drawings of women from different age groups, the stamps present the YWCA’s four core services, namely women and family services, youth and community services, education and employment services, and elderly services.

Founded in 1920, the Hong Kong Young Women’s Christian Association (HKYWCA) is one of the most time-honoured women’s groups in Hong Kong. Over the century, the HKYWCA has been committed to its mission of nurturing women and upheld its belief of serving the community by providing “women-focused” social services. On the centenary of the founding of the HKYWCA, Hongkong Post specially issues a set of four commemorative stamps to mark this momentous occasion. The stamps present the four core services of the HKYWCA, namely women and family services, youth and community services, education and employment services, and elderly services.
