Reshaping the Future of Finance. Child and Youth Finance International Summit and Awards Ceremony

1. About ChildFinance
Finance is an important part of life. Yet many children and youth do not fully understand it. 90% of children and youth are still without access to formal financial services. We say it is time to change the status quo. This is why the ChildFinance movement is dedicated to making sure that every child in the world has a savings account when they graduate from primary school and has the financial knowledge and skills to be able to operate this account. As a first step, we will work collaboratively to reach 100 million children in 100 countries by 2015.
