How are we going to do this?
With your help, we want to pilot the first initiatives in 2023 in Romania and then slowly grow our team and expand to other Eastern countries. We will start by targeting young women 18-25 in urban areas of Romania and design these initiatives online, with the ambition to expand to other demographics and to rural areas as the program grows.
Small-group, peer-led discussions on topics of interest such as budgeting, saving, lifestyle, taxes, debit & credit cards, loans, investing, managing financial risk, career (salary negotiations), retirement planning and pensions, finances as a parent (college fund, etc.). Peer-facilitators will receive training and materials that they can use to get the conversations and groups started.
A diverse team of volunteers working on putting together resources, research and papers and meeting with local government officials to advocate for access to financial literacy courses and resources in schools. Financial education is the responsibility of our governments, so we want to move the needle in the right direction and make it accessible to young people in all of Eastern Europe.
Free for all and translated in all Eastern European Languages. In our language and in a way in which we can understand it. Independent and unbiased by external incentives to ‘sell’ anything.
Going in depth on more specialized topics.
The need exists and the potential is endless.
There are millions of women in Eastern Europe each with different needs and backgrounds. Some own small businesses, some work in the informal economy, some work in multinational companies, some just received their first income or are planning to study abroad. We want women who’ve had that experience to share their learnings and help bring other women up, towards better jobs, better lifestyle and, most importantly, financial independence.
