BENEFITING: SKOLL COMMUNITY FUND
ORGANIZER: Child and Youth Finance International
EVENT DATE: Sep 30, 2013
My goal is to raise $1000 for Child and Youth Finance because I believe that the children and youth of today can have a much brighter future if they are given the tools and education to create their own fortune and become responsible economic citizens that work towards a sustainable future for all.
The Child and Youth Finance Movement has one central objective: increase the economic citizenship of 100 million children and youth in 100 countries by 2015. This means giving children and youth aged 8- 18 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.
