SMART KIDS ZONE GLOBAL MONEY WEEK 2018
Theme: Money Matter Matters
Global Money Week (GMW), a Child and Youth Finance International initiative, is an annual money awareness campaign built to inspire children and young people to learn about money matters, livelihoods and entrepreneurship with the goal to empower to empower them to become economic citizen capable of understanding the importance of saving, and equipped with the skills to be employed and create their own livelihoods. We want young people to learn to manage their money wisely. By empowering children and youth, we can help them create a positive wave that will expand from themselves, to their families and to entire communities. GMW started in 2012 as Child Finance Day/ Week and has since touched the lives of 7.8 million children and young people through 23,700 organizations in 137 countries.
Why is it important?
GMW is important because children and youth are the next generation of changemakers. They are the business leaders of tomorrow, politicians, parents, and teachers. They unlock their potential when they believe in themselves.
