Global Money Week: Children and Youth Reshaping Finance

Child & Youth Finance International

This year, between March 15th – 21st, there will be a child who will walk into a bank for the very first time. Across the world, there will be another child who will be having a conversation about finance with the governor of the central bank. In a neighbouring country, a teenager will be preparing to talk to her peers about the enterprise she and her classmates had set up. Later during the week, all of these children will share their stories with one another through a web chat. Such is the power of the Global Money Week.
