Global Money Week (GMW), a CYFI initiative, is an annual financial awareness campaign built to inspire children and young people to learn about money matters, livelihoods and entrepreneurship.
We believe that today’s children and youth should become empowered economic citizens, capable of understanding the importance of saving, and equipped with the skills to be employed and create their own livelihoods. We want young people to learn to manage their money wisely. By empowering children and youth, we can help them create a positive wave that will expand from themselves, to their families and to entire communities.
GMW is important because children and youth are the next generation of changemakers. They are tomorrow’s business leaders, politicians, parents, teachers. They unlock their potential when they believe in themselves.
Global Money Week will take place from 12 – 18 March 2018!
This year’s theme is ‘Money Matters Matter’. It is more important than ever for children and youth to be economically equipped and empowered to close inequality gaps and build a brighter future.
Money Matters Matter because children and youth need to receive the knowledge and develop skills to make smart financial decisions throughout life.
GMW is an international Week, with many events, activities, projects, launches and competitions taking place in over 130 countries. Anyone, anywhere can get involved - we encourage everyone who believes in investing in the next generation to participate!
