Dear Global Money Week Participants,
As we all know schools and universities are closed and individuals are encouraged to limit all un-necessary social movements because of COVID-19 situation.
In this context, the coordinating GMW Secretariat has decided that out of the safety of all participants as well as global solidarity and responsibility, the Global Money Week celebrations will be postponed to a later date (to be defined).
We thank everyone who has showed interest in participating this year, and we commend you for your efforts and enthusiasm. We are confident that we will all emerge stronger from these challenging times!
SAGO TEAM will remain available for questions and suggestions.
Wishing everyone good health and we look forward to celebrating Global Money Week together in the near future!
Global Money Week (GMW) is an annual financial awareness campaign built to inspire children and young people to learn about money matters, livelihoods and entrepreneurship. Initiated by CYFI in 2012, it is now organised by the OECD International Network on Financial Education (OECD/INFE).
SAGO Finance joined the Global Money Week, becoming a leading organisation in 2019. This year together with our partners, High Edu and Financial Market, we are preparing interactive courses for the students of the 10th and 11th grades from the Bucharest high schools.
Under the slogan "Learn.Save.Earn" we will bring a very important topic for the whole children's life, namely "The Power of compound interest". We will decode by playing, doing different exercises and by storytelling what Albert Einstein wanted to say by the fact that the power of compound interest is the eighth wonder of the world:
“Compound interest is the eighth wonder of the world. He who understands it, earns it; he who doesn't, pays it. ”
