Learn, Earn and Save, a Mastercard Foundation initiative, was established in 2011 to provide economically disadvantaged young people in East Africa with market-relevant training and opportunities to access jobs or start small businesses. In partnership with CAP Youth Empowerment Institute, Swisscontact, and Fundación Paraguaya in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania, the initiative has piloted three different approaches. This brief, released in partnership with the University of Minnesota at the Young Africa Works Summit in Kigali, summarises key findings of a five year study focusing on the Learn, Earn and Save initiative.
Further results from the Learn, Earn and Save Longitudinal Research will be published in 2017.
The theme of Global Money Week 2017 is Learn.Earn.Save. This annual global celebration, initiated by Mastercard Foundation partners Child & Youth Finance International, is aimed at inspiring children and youth to learn about money and saving.
