Throughout Global Money Week 2019, the GARD Center, along with the Ministry of Trade and Commerce and the Antigua and Barbuda Investment Authority, visited the Christ the King High School, to talk to the students about GMW, the purpose of the Campaign, and how different organizations can work together to reach the same goal. The Week was festively opened by the students and representatives from the participating organizations. Financial literacy awareness sessions were offered to children, youth and adults. The children participated in a GMW quiz and three children received prizes for answering questions about the history of Global Money Week correctly.
