Spotlight on JA Africa Member Nations’ Participation in Global Money Week 2024

Junior Achievement Africa joined the rest of the world in celebrating Global Money Week (GMW) from 18-24 March 2024. GMW, a Child & Youth Finance International (CYFI) initiative, GMW is an annual global awareness-raising campaign on the importance of ensuring that young people, from an early age, are financially aware, and are gradually acquiring the knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviours necessary to make sound financial decisions and ultimately achieve financial well-being and financial resilience. Throughout 11 editions, starting in 2012, GMW has reached over 60 million children and young people in 176 countries worldwide. The theme for this year’s celebration was “Protect your money, secure your future.”

JA Africa and its member nations commemorated the week long celebrations with events to educate and create awareness on financial literacy among young Africans. The celebration is in line with JA Africa’s mission to empower Africa’s youth through financial literacy, entrepreneurship and work readiness education.
