Fonkoze conducted a five-day training program to teach financial literacy to young Haitian women in the coastal city of Jakmel. Koze Jen (“About Youth” in Kreyol) is about developing capacity, collaboration, and community between Fonkoze and the 15-24-year-old women who enter the program. The five-day program covered topics such as budget development, identifying the difference between needs and wants, planning and preparing for emergencies, and creating and utilizing a financial diary. This initiative was designed to help these women become independent future leaders. Over the course of the week approximately 150 young people participated in the workshops.
