Description

We are delighted to invite you to a discussion and networking evening on the theme of Girls’ Economic Empowerment with Eva Halper, from Credit Suisse’s Global Education Initiative, Aukje te Kaat, Research Manager with Aflatoun International and with representatives from Plan International (China and Brazil).

The Global Education Initiative’s programme focuses on Financial Education for Girls. It was launched in 2014 and is implemented by Aflatoun International and Plan International in Brazil, China, India and Rwanda.

The programme aims to provide approximately 100,000 girls with financial education and life skills, empowering the next generation of women to achieve better futures for themselves and their communities.

Girls can have limited opportunities to gain the education and knowledge that will lead to future economic advancement. Programmes and interventions that seek to expand those opportunities, such as those containing financial education, can be critical levers for change in adolescent girls’ lives, helping them to gain independence, establish good financial habits and improve their future prospects for decent work – which can ultimately break intergenerational cycles of poverty.

Eva Halper who leads Credit Suisse’s Global Education Initiative will talk us through the development, context and design of the programme.

Aukje te Kaat who is research manager for Aflatoun International will talk us through the implementation process and associated challenges, and some of the initial results evident from the first stages of implementation.

Programme managers from Plan International’s Brazil and China offices will also be present to answer questions on the programme in those two countries.
