“Here I learned to chase my dreams," says Karoline, second from left. "If I manage to work and save then I will be able to go to university and study law, medicine or become a policewoman."

TRANSFORMING FUTURES

Karoline is 15 years old and lives in rural northeast Brazil. She is a peer educator for the Financial Education for Girls programme at her school, where she delivers the curriculum to her fellow students.

As part of the programme, Karoline started her own enterprise to make and sell coxinha, a traditional Brazilian chicken pastry. She received support to purchase the ingredients and packaging material before making and selling her coxinhas in school and at an organised fair.

Karoline also used her leadership and arithmetic skills to help her classmates complete budgets for their own enterprises. The experience helped her learn about business planning, market research, budgeting and marketing – and become more confident about her future.

Celebrating 10 years of partnership

Over 10 years of partnership, thanks to Credit Suisse’s support, we’ve ensured over 242,600 children have access to a better quality education. Together, we can achieve more.
