SG2018: The Power of Savings Groups
The Global Savings Groups Conference Series is a biennial conference that engages a large and diverse community of stakeholders. The event develops and promotes improved standards of practice, mobilizes knowledge, strengthens partnerships and alliances, and creates opportunities for cross-organizational learning.Since 2011, SEEP has been an active contributor to the Global Savings Groups Conference Series. Each event in this series has also served as a catalyst to increase the scale, sustainability and impact of Savings Groups in the host country – and region. SG2015, in Zambia, was the third event in the series and engaged close to 400 participants representing 147 organizations from 44 countries.
The SEEP Network is delighted to host SG2018: The Power of Savings Groups, in collaboration with Conference partners. SG2018 will take place in Rwanda, on May 22-24, and will offer a platform for attendees to connect, engage and learn from each other about the challenges and opportunities they face in supporting Savings Groups – including VSLAs, SHGs, indigenous savings groups, and other forms of community-based microfinance – worldwide. In this pursuit, SEEP encourages greater use of a wide range of innovative session structures and methodologies that build on emerging and accepted best practices in learning and the dissemination of innovations.
