Global Money Week is a worldwide celebration to empower the next generation to be confident, responsible and skilled economic citizens. Every year, during the second week of March, young people around the globe talk, play, create, sing, read, discuss and learn about saving, money, changing economic systems and building a financial future for youth. It is about joining together – children, youth, parents, organizations and entire communities - to start action to reshape finance, and give young people the tools to shape their own future.

Youth ages 12 to 24 make up about one-quarter of the population of Sub-Saharan Africa. It is estimated that less than five percent have access to financial services. Perceptions that youth are risky clients, age restrictions on lending to them, and assumptions that products and services already ‘fit’ their needs limit the supply of youth-appropriate financial services.

Youth make up 17 percent of the world’s population and 40 percent of the world’s unemployed, according to the International Labor Organization. A number of factors combine to make sustainable, decent employment an enormous challenge for youth the world over, including low levels of education and technical skills, slow job growth, lack of information about available jobs, and difficulties accessing financial capital to start small enterprises.
