Emirates Foundation, in collaboration with Operation HOPE, the US-based organisation focused on financial literacy and empowerment, announced today the launch of its latest project, "The 100 Youth Club", which aims to instruct 100 Emirati youths to become trainers and mentors in the field of personal financial management.
The launch of ‘The 100 Youth Club’ builds on the successful initiatives managed by the Emirates Foundation’s ‘Esref Sah’ programme, which is intended to raise and strengthen awareness for better financial management among the Emirati youth by providing them guidance to a better means of spending and to encouraging them to save and avoid accumulating financial burdens in the future.
Attending the launch were Emirates Foundation CEO, Clair Woodcraft and Operation HOPE, Founder, Chairman, and CEO, John Hope Bryant.
The Emirates Foundation organised three training workshops to coincide with the launch in Zayed University, Higher Colleges of Technology in Dubai, and UAE University in Al Ain. Over 100 participants representing academia, banking institutions, and business sectors attended the workshops.
