For the second time, Madagascar will take part in the celebration of Global Money Week. Last year, 9 schools and universities had the privilege to participate in the GMW including the EPP and the CEG Antanimbarinandriana, Andohalo High Schools, Jules Ferry, Rabearivelo and Ampefiloha, ACEEM Universities, UCM and DEGS Ankatso Faculty.

During the 2016 edition, nearly 1,500 children and young participated actively. This time around 30 schools, universities, financial institutions, private companies, and other partners will take part in the celebration. The GMW 2017 aims to directly target 5,000 children and youth and 400 adults, and indirectly 100,000 children and youth and 250,000 adults.

This year, various activities will be on the program, including the official launch of the celebration, financial education sessions in schools and universities, a panel discussion on TV, testimonies of some young successful people and visits to several financial institutions.

During the celebration, gifts will be distributed to children and young people, and trophies and certificates for the participating institutions. It is also planned to raise awareness among children and young people about the importance of saving from an early age. In collaboration with the financial institutions, it is planned to facilitate as much as possible their steps for the opening of savings account. It will also be a way to get closer to the principles of the SchoolBank Project.

Moreover, this year on the 27th of March the launch of the “Bank the youth campaign” will be organized in Madagascar. This joint campaign between CYFI and UNCDF aims to promote a set of recommendations to policy-makers to improve the financial inclusion of young people.

Madagascar was a newcomer to the GMW celebrations this year. The Coordination Nationale de la Finance Inclusive (CNFI), in close cooperation with the Association Professionnelle des Institutions de MicroFinance of Madagascar (APIMF), set up a comprehensive and diverse program for its first time participating in Global Money Week.

The Ministry of Finance and Budget officially launched the GMW celebrations in Antananarivo. The opening ceremony was followed by conferences and debates about the state of financial inclusion in the country, which were open to stakeholders and professionals of financial inclusion. For youth participants, a film projection “Me and Money” (“Moi et l’argent”), activities and discussions took place the same day for a crowd of 500 students from nine high schools and universities! Students from primary schools in Antananarivo were also reached during the Week through awareness raising and money-related drawing competitions, and the CNFI opened savings accounts for the winners of these competitions.

Media was closely following all of these events which were mobilized throughout the Week through special GMW TV shows on financial inclusion with the CNFI and APIMF, radio spots, newspaper ads and press releases. Together, all of these insured a large awareness campaign on financial education in Madagascar, reaching over 615,000 people, and over 1100 children and youth were reached directly by attending the GMW celebrations! They found this event really interesting and asked to be part of next year's celebrations as well.

“…your institutions had the privilege and the chance to be chosen for taking part in this event. May your pupils and students learn the maximum from lessons regarding smart money management, may they, in particular, become aware of the importance of saving. May their participation in this celebration allow them to raise awareness themselves amongst their classmates, their families and their close friends who will also do the same.” Mr. Rakotoarimanana François Marie Maurice Gervais, Minister of Finance and Budget
“…you admit with me that we need to financially educate the Malagasy population…. Children and youth are privileged targets regarding financial education during this week of celebration, but this is only the start of a long-lasting campaign for the population in general.” age, name etc. Mr. Randrianiana Rakotoarivao, Director of the Association Professionnelle des Institutions de MicroFinance (APIMF)
