Due to unforeseen circumstances in the country, Crescat was not able to conduct their original plans for Global Money Week 2019. They were incredibly innovative and gave 40 young people the opportunity to participate in the International Summit on Finance, organised by Group Croissance. It allowed the young people and other participants to learn about the history of Haitian money and discuss with representatives of banks and financial institutions what types of financial services they offered.

Fonkoze conducted a five-day training programme 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 programme. The five-day programme 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.
