3rd Child and Youth Finance International Regional Meeting for Africa (Addis Ababa, Ethiopia)
The 3rd Child and Youth Finance International (CYFI) Regional Meeting for Africa is scheduled to take place in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia at the African Union Conference Center from December 4-5, 2014.
This annual regional gathering of policy makers, financial service providers, educators, research institutions, youth serving organizations and representatives from ministries of education, finance, employment, planning and development and children and youth provides a platform for policy dialogue on children and youth financial inclusion, education and employment. Additionally, it serves as an avenue for knowledge sharing, skills and capacity development, and for linking children and youth to the development agenda for Africa.
The 3rd CYFI Regional Meeting for Africa will build on the success of the previous editions and on the CYFI International Summit held in May 2014 at the United Nations Headquaters in New York. The CYFI Secretariat will be partnering with the African Youth Panel, ICS, Africa 2.0 and other institutions in organizing this Meeting.
