Financial Education and Life Skills for Girls
Join us to hear the latest research, findings and impact from key experts, drawing on findings from Plan International’s Financial Education and Life Skills programme delivered in Brazil, China, India and Rwanda in partnership with Credit Suisse and Aflatoun International.
Education drives economic empowerment and social mobility. Programming related to building financial and life skills education supports a holistic approach to women’s economic empowerment that includes the promotion of enabling environments from very early in life.
By increasing both the financial capability of girls as well as awareness of their social and economic rights, they can better fulfil their potential and take advantage of economic opportunities, as they transition into adulthood.
This is essential in order to address the barriers to gender equality more broadly, and particularly in rural settings.
In partnership with Credit Suisse and Aflatoun International.

Time poverty caused by unpaid care work has devastating impacts on girls' lives.
It is a major obstacle to girls enjoying their rights to education and health services, as well as limiting their independence and access to socio-economic opportunities.
Time poverty and unpaid care work must be addressed to ensure girls are able to achieve their full potential.
