Global Money Week
Global Money Week (GMW) is a money awareness celebration. The goal is to teach children and youth about money, saving, creating livelihoods, gaining employment and becoming an entrepreneur through fun and interactive activities. Every year, entire communities take action to create awareness, challenge out of date financial policies and give young people the tools and inspiration they need to shape their own future. GMW takes place annually, during the second week of March. The events are organized by schools, universities, government ministries, financial institutions, members of the civil society and youth worldwide. GMW is initiated and coordinated by Child & Youth Finance International (CYFI).
GMW2016’s theme is ‘Take Part. Save Smart!’ Why? Because: It is important for children and youth to learn and take part in clever cost-careful habits from an early age, in order to avoid financial exclusion and develop key money-managing skills for later in life.
