Are you taking part in Global Money Week 2018? If not you should be. It’s an annual financial awareness campaign built by CYFI (Child & Youth Financial International) to inspire children and young people to learn about money matters, livelihoods, and entrepreneurship held in March every year. This year it’s this week (12 – 18 March) with events happening…you guessed it, globally!
Last year 7.8 million children & youth took part in 137 countries with over 72,759 activities held by 23,738 organizations! Everyone who believes in investing in the next generation is encouraged to participate. We think it’s great and hope as many people as possible take part and continue to use what they learn during the week as they go on.
