The theme for the final multi-stakeholder meeting held on October 23, 2014 in Nairobi, Kenya was “Promoting Youth Financial Capability to Unlock Sustainable Development in Kenya”. Over 130 participants of whom at least 30 were youth gathered together to discuss future opportunities for youth savings in Kenya. The meeting included three sessions. First, the YouthSave partners discussed successes, challenges and opportunities of the project in Kenya over the past four years. After this session, several youth participating in the programme took the stage to relate their experiences with saving and financial education.
