Comores Entreprendre
This year was the first year that Comoros took part in Global Money Week. During GMW2018 celebrations, Comores Entreprendre organized sensitization, promotion, and education activities for young people in municipalities around the capital city, Moroni. The official opening was held at the Ministry of Youth headquarters, in partnership with associations and the director of the National High School of the Comoros Union. Representatives of the national government, students, teachers, and parents attended the event. Additionally, conferences were organized to discuss the risks and benefits associated with bank loans and to raise awareness on financial education. During the Week's activities, children and youth learned about the role of GMW and concluded with a sports tournament to promote GMW2018.
