A great, great day in mother South Africa. On September 24th, 2007, Operation HOPE of South Africa, and its signature Banking on Our Future, South Africa program, taught its first classrooms of youth financial literacy, dignity and entrepreneurship tied to our June 7th, 2007 launch on the African continent.
These amazing, focused and self-inspired youth represent the first of 50,000 youth and women that will be positively impacted over the next 5-years by Banking on Our Future, South Africa. A special thanks to our lead partners there, Citi, our first global partner, The International Finance Corporation (IFC), part of the World Bank group, Standard Bank, the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund, MEC of Education Motshekga and MEC of Education Dugmore, amongst other leaders in the country.
Banking on Our Future, SA is a commitment of the Clinton Global Initiative.
The best is yet to come.
Onward with HOPEJohn Hope Bryant
