ANNEX 1: GMW2019 IN NUMBERS..............173 ANNEX 2: QUOTES FROM GMW2019.............180

8 Editions of Global Money Week, 8 Global Successes. Global Money Week has come a long way from when we called our first edition ‘Child and Youth Finance Day/ Week’ (not the catchiest title, we know!). Back then we were a small, new, unheard-of NGO that had an ambition much greater than ourselves to reshape an entire ecosystem. We knew that the only way to make this happen was to bring together a large group of diverse stakeholders from around the world, and unite them in work and celebration. The Global Money Week Campaign brought us all together. We have vivid memories of the very first Week in 2012, when we nervously launched the first newsletter inviting countries to take part, not knowing what to expect. Well, we can tell you that the response surpassed our expectations: partners in 21 countries put their faith and trust in us and were the first to bring the celebrations to their countries. That first year, NASDAQ also invited us to ring the opening bell of the New York Stock Exchange. It was that surreal moment when we saw the newly created CYFI logo staring down at us from the heart of Times Square. We knew we had created something wonderful and lasting. Global Money Week has grown beyond us. It has a magnetic power, made strong by the passion all the global partners bring to it. This year’s Global Money Week reached 8.4 million children and youth in 152 countries, bringing the total reach of Global Money Week throughout the years to over 40 million children and youth in 175 countries. With Global Money Week having achieved the recognition and independence it has, there could be no better time for CYFI to hand over the Campaign to the very partners who gave it life. It was with great pleasure that, in June 2019, CYFI handed over Global Money Week to the OECD International Network on Financial Education (INFE). This network is made up of national authorities around the world, which are dedicated to the financial betterment of individuals. With them, Global Money Week will reach new heights, becoming further institutionalized in the agendas of governments worldwide. As we at CYFI proudly watch Global Money Week enter a new phase, we want to send our deepest and most heartfelt gratitude to every single organization and individual that has been, and continues to be, part of Global Money Week’s success. Your dedication to bringing Economic Citizenship to children and youth in your countries has proven itself boundless. Thank you for bringing your energy, innovation and commitment to this Movement and to Global Money Week. It is because of this that we are certain that Global Money Week will continue to reach new heights. Thank you so much. Yours sincerely, The Child & Youth Finance International Team

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Learn.Save.Earn. at the center of GMW Every child deserves a brighter financial future, but no child will get there alone. Through Global Money Week (GMW), children, governments, and institutions all over the world have raised their voices to demand a better introduction into the financial world. Between 25 – 31 March, Global Money Week 2019 was celebrated in a record-breaking 152 countries and overseas territories across all continents, serving as a strong reminder of the world’s determination to tackle financial exclusion by celebrating ‘all things money.’ CYFI kicked off GMW at Euronext Stock Exchange

Global Money Week Report 2019

Amsterdam, with the Aflatoun International team and students celebrating the start of Global Money Week 2019 and this year’s international Aflatoun Day! From Central Banks to local branches, to schools and stock exchanges, youth financial inclusion and economic empowerment found their way to the top of agendas in a plight to create a financially secure generation. With millions of children and youth reached, GMW2019 has proven to be the most inclusive year yet.

Financial inclusion is one of the key barriers to education, healthcare and secure employment; major components to a secure economy. Financial inclusion means removing physical and technological boundaries to banking services and starts with having access to appropriate services. In Asia, Africa and South America, bank branches opened their doors to children and youth providing the opportunity to open bank accounts, explore financial products and participate in banking seminars. Across the world, leading financial institutions came

together to commit to providing youth friendly banking products, promote secure banking methods and educate entire families on the importance of money. Financial education plays an irrefutable role in improving economic security. Building a financially secure generation requires us to act today and to improve financial literacy amongst the youth to prevent a void in financial understanding – one lesson, one bank account at a time.


From implementing a country-wide compulsory financial education program to inviting government representatives to speak about the importance of financial education people have united across the world to support the Campaign. Over 1,000 lessons and workshops took place, showing us that we can take simple steps towards a better future for all. As global development advances and industry changes, organizations at local and regional levels used GMW2019 to create awareness on how our individual actions and choices contribute to both the personal finance and the national economy.

Promoting sustainable, productive livelihoods is one of the cornerstones of creating an economically secure future. In Africa, a continent on the frontlines of entrepreneurship education, organizations used the Week to offer skills development programs and business training to highlight the potential of young people and enable them to contribute to their local economy. Organizations committed to improving livelihoods for youth, raised their voice through social media to share what money matters matter to them and promote the benefits of financial

security. With each post, television interview and radio broadcast, GMW has brought us a step closer to financial inclusion for all. Through commitment and collaboration, governments and communities are in a better position to create sustainable livelihoods, develop financially secure households and meet global development goals. Global Money Week empowers every individual to start making a change in the right direction; towards the secure financial future that our children deserve.

GMW has shown the true power of collaborative systems change. This model that CYFI has continued to implement for the past 8 years has once again highlighted how local and international partnerships, with a focus towards a common goal, and a coordinated approach, can implement real and effective change. Together, we have managed to achieve great impact with the power of partnerships.

GMW2019 OUTREACH: From Countries to Children and Youth GMW outreach is calculated through a series of reporting forms both before and after the Week, which Network partners use to report the national engagement resulting from their GMW events and activities. The CYFI Team uses this data to gauge global, regional and national reach and the Week’s year-on-year growth.

Organizations Within each country, GMW events and activities are coordinated by one or more leading organizations that are part of the CYFI Global Network. Participating organizations are those which have been involved in activities but are not leading the GMW celebrations within a country.

Participating countries CYFI recognizes all United Nations Member States, as well as States that have been granted Non-Member Observer Status by the United Nations.

LEARN. SAVE. EARN. GMW Slogan: ‘Learn.Save.Earn.’ ‘Learn.Save.Earn.’ is the official slogan of the Global Money Week (GMW). Initially used as the theme of GMW2017 and transformed into the Campaign’s slogan, we believe it conveys the key messages of the GMW Campaign and supports the goal of the Week by empowering children and youth to not only learn to manage their money wisely, but to help them transfer their knowledge to their families and to entire communities. In addition, the slogan ‘Learn. Save.Earn.’ helps everyone to create a variety of events and activities around these topics that help children and youth to: • Learn to manage money wisely Educating children and young people about their social and economic rights and responsibilities is key to creating a generation of capable adults, who can make wise decisions for their future. • Save for their futures It is important for children and youth to build clever savings habits from an early age in order to cultivate key money-managing skills for later in life. • Earn for themselves and their families Developing livelihoods skills or receiving entrepreneurial training, supports children and young people in getting a job or building their own business and developing their careers.
