The aim was to teach youth aged 10 to 30 about the importance of savings from an early age, and to educate them on how to open and manage bank and savings accounts. During the teaching sessions in high schools, presentations were followed by questions from participants, along with experience sharing, in order to have an interactive and dynamic learning process. In addition, GOPA Consulting met with the General Director for Secondary and Normal Education of the Ministry of Education to present the GMW theme and to raise awareness of financial education to local authorities.
