Women face unequal access to economic opportunities and unequal outcomes with respect to men, including lower access to higher education, lower employment, lower earnings, and lower access to entrepreneurship and to finance; − Women’s financial knowledge and confidence is generally lower than men’s and their financial needs and competencies are different in many instances. • Based on identified needs, financial awareness and education approaches specifically addressing women’s and girls’ needs should also be integrated in existing or newly-developed national strategies for financial education. As such, these approaches should follow similar processes and mechanisms as the national strategy. These notably include the identification of targeted and measurable objectives backed by earmarked and sustainable resources. • Financial education approaches addressing women’s and girls’ needs should also be elaborated and implemented in full coordination with other relevant national/local policies aimed at addressing gender equality issues.
Within this concept, the proposed project aims at developing an innovative framework for Financial Literacy Education Programme for women with the partner countries, a Training for Trainers will be realized once after the completition of the framework and then the partner countries will use this framework for their women target groups.
