Child and Youth Finance International (CYFI)

Child and Youth Finance International (CYFI) and the United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) have partnered on a #BankTheYouth Campaign to raise awareness and stimulate activity around financial inclusion and financial capability for children and youth around the world.

This will include a series of public webinars throughout the 2nd half of 2017. We invite you to take part in the first of these webinars which will take place on Thursday July 6th at 13:00 GMT (15:00 CET and 09:00 EST). The webinar will focus on the CYFI and Mastercard Corporation co-publication Safer Payment Products for Minors: Guiding Minors Towards Financial Autonomy.

In addition to questions that will come from the online participants, the webinar will cover issues related to:

-          The importance of parent-child dialogue about data protection and fraud risks
