Global Money Week 2015 celebrations in Aruba were organized by the Kiwanis club of Young Professionals under the project name: Placa Chikito (literally: loose change in the native language Papiamento, while also proverbially meaning “explaining something in great detail.”)

The Governor of Aruba officially launched the week by symbolically handing the first educational material package at a primary school. Several local banks and other private sector parties also visited primary schools throughout Global Money Week to supply lessons on the importance of saving and spending money prudently. These topics were also highlighted in the local media throughout the week.
