2017 marked the second year of participation of Madagascar in Global Money Week. During the celebration, several events and activities were organized in the central area of the country. Financial education sessions were held for 1000 students in several high, secondary and middle schools.

With the support of the Ministry of Finance, the launch of GMW 2017 was held in Antananarivo, and the activities continued throughout the week, including financial education sessions, student visits to financial institutions, sharing of experiences from young entrepreneurs, conferences, debates and a television program focusing on financial inclusion of youth. Furthermore, the Ministry of National Education provided youth with books and school kits during the celebration. Through the Week, more than 3,600 children and youth were directly reached and more than 150,000 other children were reached indirectly through awareness-raising campaigns broadcasted on national channels. In total, 31 schools and universities, 12 financial institutions and 4 private companies took part in this celebration.

With the support of Minister of Finance and Budget and the attendance of the Minister of National Education and the Minister of Communication, the closure celebration of the Global Money Week took place on Thursday, April 6, 2017 in Antsahavola. Participation certificates and awards were given to all GMW 2017 participants.

The initiative was highly appreciated by children and young people, as well as by representatives of schools and universities, as they all expressed the wish for GMW to become institutionalized to enable a very large circulation of financial education at the national level. The Bolo’s song “Ny mahasoa aloha vao ny mahafinaritra”, which was specially written for the event, was a great success amongst the children and youth. It is believed that this second Global Money Week will have an important and long term impact regarding financial inclusion and financial education in Madagascar, and is the key step for further partnerships between the government of Madagascar and CYFI.

Madagascar was a newcomer to the GMW celebrations this year. The Coordination Nationale de la Finance Inclusive (CNFI), in close cooperation with the Association Professionnelle des Institutions de MicroFinance of Madagascar (APIMF), set up a comprehensive and diverse program for its first time participating in Global Money Week.

The Ministry of Finance and Budget officially launched the GMW celebrations in Antananarivo. The opening ceremony was followed by conferences and debates about the state of financial inclusion in the country, which were open to stakeholders and professionals of financial inclusion. For youth participants, a film projection “Me and Money” (“Moi et l’argent”), activities and discussions took place the same day for a crowd of 500 students from nine high schools and universities! Students from primary schools in Antananarivo were also reached during the Week through awareness raising and money-related drawing competitions, and the CNFI opened savings accounts for the winners of these competitions.

Media was closely following all of these events which were mobilized throughout the Week through special GMW TV shows on financial inclusion with the CNFI and APIMF, radio spots, newspaper ads and press releases. Together, all of these insured a large awareness campaign on financial education in Madagascar, reaching over 615,000 people, and over 1100 children and youth were reached directly by attending the GMW celebrations! They found this event really interesting and asked to be part of next year's celebrations as well.

“…your institutions had the privilege and the chance to be chosen for taking part in this event. May your pupils and students learn the maximum from lessons regarding smart money management, may they, in particular, become aware of the importance of saving. May their participation in this celebration allow them to raise awareness themselves amongst their classmates, their families and their close friends who will also do the same.” Mr. Rakotoarimanana François Marie Maurice Gervais, Minister of Finance and Budget
“…you admit with me that we need to financially educate the Malagasy population…. Children and youth are privileged targets regarding financial education during this week of celebration, but this is only the start of a long-lasting campaign for the population in general.” age, name etc. Mr. Randrianiana Rakotoarivao, Director of the Association Professionnelle des Institutions de MicroFinance (APIMF)
