YouthTech is a blog hosted by Child and Youth Finance International (CYFI) to share technological innovations and ideas around the topic of economic empowerment of children and youth. It provides a platform where professionals and talented minds within the CYFI network and beyond engage in dialogues of the potentials of technology in enhancing financial capability of children and youth. Moreover, YouthTech also serves to share best practices and to document how technology is shaping the Child and Youth Finance Movement worldwide. We hope this will contribute to the understanding of what is needed for technology to make a difference in the current financial inclusion and education landscape and the ways of turning it into a reality.
