Global Money Week 2017
What is Global Money Week (GMW) all about?
GMW is an annual global celebration, initiated by the Child & Youth Finance International (CYFI), with local and regional events and activities aimed at inspiring children and youth to learn about money, saving, creating livelihoods, gaining employment and becoming an entrepreneur.
GMW 2017 is being celebrated this week, March 27, 2017 – 2 April 2, 2017. This year’s theme is ‘Learn. Save. Earn.’
Learn: Educating children and young people about their social and economic rights and responsibilities is key to creating a generation of capable adults who can make wise decisions for their future
Save: It is important for children and youth to build clever savings habits from an early age in order to cultivate key money-managing skills for later in life
Earn: Developing livelihood skills or receiving entrepreneurial training, supports children and young people with getting a job, developing their careers or building their own business.
GMW started in 2011 and is now a global celebration recognised by over 135 countries.
