Lecture 29 May: Promoting youth empowerment through financial inclusion, the world-wide impact of the Aflatoun programme

23 May 2013

Lecture by: Hidde van der Veer - Executive Director of Aflatoun/Child Savings International

Time: 20.00h

Place: Senaatskamer at the RUG Academy Building.

In the world of microfinance, microsaving has a central place. To stimulate the habit of saving with children and to promote financial literacy at an early age has many benefits. Aflatoun is a social and financial education programme and network in 95 countries. In the network different organisations (such as ngo's and mfi's) deal with many different social themes that are combined with group saving and individual saving.

In the lecture Hidde van der Veer will provide examples of how microsaving has increased the capacity of children to change their own lives by be being able to take decisions for themselves.

The aim is to empower children through saving.
