3 years ago 3 years ago Published by Leave your thoughts

In order for young people to achieve their potential as empowered and engaged economic citizens, they must have access to safe and appropriate financial services and quality financial, social, and livelihoods education. The Child and Youth Finance Movement is uniting government authorities, financial service providers, academics, and youth serving organizations from across the world to advance financial inclusion and economic citizenship education at the global, regional, and national level. This article explains the central components of the child and youth finance movement, examines the evidence base for the movement’s Theory of Change and explores how various partners and stakeholders in the movement are working to create an ecosystem for the next generation of economic citizens.
