HSBC and Injaz Egypt are expanding a new financial education experience that teaches young people how to save, budget, and make smart decisions with their money.
The “JA Building a Financially Capable Generation” initiative pairs educators from JA and volunteers from HSBC with groups of students in classrooms, community centers, and online.
Educators and volunteers work together to teach, coach, and mentor young people to increase their knowledge, skills, and experience with money, promote their self-confidence, and build relationships that support financial health and resiliency. The program is designed for youth ages 12-16.
“We are very proud to be partnering with HSBC for the second year in a row on the Building a Financially Capable Generation program. This partnership has truly demonstrated the great impact the program has on its students and I am excited for further collaborations with HSBC, a very impact-driven entity. Together we are proud to deliver great learning experiences that enable young people to become financially capable and enable them to own their financial futures,” Yasmine Wilson, Managing Director, INJAZ Egypt, said.
This year, a grant from HSBC will enable Injaz Egypt and the JA Worldwide network to engage more students in the learning experience and to launch the program in four more countries: Oman, Turkey, Thailand, and Vietnam.
