PROJECT SUMMARY: COVID-19 is painfully exposing the existing and persisting health, social and economic inequalities in our societies. This pandemic has the heaviest impact on the lives of people living in deprivation or facing difficult socio-economic circumstances. The constant threat of financial crisis has made it crucial to address the need for financial literacy educational programs. Without it, people fail to make the right decisions. As it affects everybody, it covers all demographics, all geographies, and all cultures, the involvement of youth workers, educators and educational leaders as the frontline staff is essential to help young people and young entrepreneurs build financial literacy – money knowledge, skills, and habits at key transitional moments. We believe that today’s youth should become empowered economic citizens, capable of understanding the importance of saving, to be equipped with the skills to be employed and create their livelihoods. By empowering youth, we can help them transfer their knowledge to their families and to entire communities.
