ASPIRES supports the provision of financial capabilities training to thousands of young people in Kenya and South Africa, including approximately 50,000 adolescent girls and young women participating in DREAMS. Our participatory training program, developed with Save the Children, helps young people ages 14 to 24 link their dreams and goals to skills, knowledge, and attitudes related to responsible money management. This program complements other trainings developed under ASPIRES in employability skills, entrepreneurship, and accessing tertiary and vocational education opportunities, as well as an extensive HIV prevention education curriculum.
