ChildFinance is a concept born from the experiences of organizations promoting financial education and financial access to children and youth across the world. ChildFinance is defined as "the creation and strengthening of systems, structures and policies which provide children with choices, informs them of their rights, instills in them values, empowers them to make sounds financial decisions, build their assets and invest in their own futures."
ChildFinance is an umbrella organization that aims to develop a global network including government representatives, financial service providers, multilaterals, NGOs, academics, private foundations and other communities of practice focusing on financial products and skills development for young people. Through the development of this multi-stakeholder movement, ChildFinance hopes to increase the exposure of children throughout the world to quality social and financial education and financial products that contribute to their personal development.
