Global Money Week is Growing: Join the Fun!

A group of 3-8 year old Samoan children celebrated the launch of Global Money Week this morning by drawing their savings grow into their dreams.  Global Money Week (10th-17th March) is the perfect time for us to show our support for the nurturing of these dreams. This newsletter will be your daily update on this continuing growth.
 
Some of the events which we will share with you will be for today, some for tomorrow and some will have already happened. Some of the events are hosted by financial institutions, some by NGOs, and some by schools. Some will be targeting our youngest children, some will involve teenagers and some will focus on university students. We will sum them all up for you!
 
Global Money Week’s social media campaigns have already taken off phenomenally with just under a million tweets circulating across the world.  Financial institutions, NGOs, and everyone who believes in giving our children and youth a chance at economic independence and financial inclusion - everyone is having fun with finance during Global Money Week
