General

  • Mission:
  • The Mission of Child and Youth Finance International is to empower all children and youth around the world, particularly those who are vulnerable and marginalized, by increasing their financial capability, enhancing their awareness of social and economic rights and improving their access to appropriate financial services so as to build their assets and invest in their own futures.

  • Overview:
  • Child and Youth Finance International (CYFI) leads the world’s largest Movement dedicated to enhancing the financial capabilities of children and youth.

    CYFI leverages expertise and innovation from within its network of global organizations. Its partners and supporters include financial authorities and some of the world’s leading financial institutions, corporations, international NGOs, multilateral and bilateral organizations, foundations, renowned academics, and without a doubt, children and youth.

    The organization has one central objective: increase the economic citizenship of children and youth. This means giving all children and youth aged 8- 24 the knowledge to make wise financial decisions , the opportunity to accumulate savings, and the skills to find employment, earn a livelihood and ultimately break the cycle of poverty.

    CYFI is widely known for organization and global coordination of Global Money Week, an annual financial education, entrepreneurship and money awareness event. In 2014, Global Money Week activities took place during the 2nd week or March in more than 100 countries worldwide.

    The CYFI Secretariat is based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands and consists of six departments: Regional & National Platforms, Education, Inclusion, Research, Communications, and Operations.

  • History:
  • The ChildFinance Movement was born from the experiences of organizations promoting financial education and financial access for child and youth. The Movement was launched in June 2010 at a meeting of multi-sectorial stakeholders active in child and youth finance and education.
