[WorldYouth] Global Money Week for The Year 2016

Dear members and colleagues, Warm greeting from the World Assembly of Youth headquarters in Melaka, Malaysia! We are pleased to inform you that one of the largest annual event of Child and Youth Finance International (CYFI) in collaboration with WAY, Global Money Week, is coming up in just two months and it would be great to have you all involved. The Child and Youth Finance International is an international organisation based in Amsterdam focused on the economic empowerment of young people around the world. Global Money Week (GMW) is a money awareness celebration. The goal is to teach children and youth about money, saving, creating livelihoods, gaining employment and becoming an entrepreneur through fun and interactive activities. Every year, entire communities take action to create awareness, challenge out of date financial policies and give young people the tools and inspiration they need to shape their own future. GMW takes place annually, during the second week of March. The events are organised by schools, universities, government ministries, financial institutions, members of the civil society and youth worldwide. We are really happy with the results we had last year: 5.6 million of children and youth, 124 countries and over 3000 activities all around the world, and we hope that year 2016 will have even more young people involved! You can read more about the GMW at http://www.globalmoneyweek.org/Information/about.html  and for more about ideas and planning, kindly refer to http://www.globalmoneyweek.org/Information/toolkit.html. If you and your organisation are interested in taking part in GMW, please contact Kimberly DeRose via email at kimberly@childfinance.org , the Youth Coordinator at Child and Youth Finance International, directly and she would be happy to assist you. Sincerely, Posted by: “WAY Secretariat” <office@way.org.my>

SHARE: Tweet on Twitter Share on Facebook
Dear Ms. Helene H. Oord,You have no doubt heard of the catastrophic 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck Nepal on Saturday. The death toll continues to climb, and damage to the Kathmandu area is beyond measure.

To bring critical relief to Nepalese children and families today, please donate to The Global Fund for Children’s emergency relief fund. This fund will support local organizations that are directly affected by the Nepal earthquake. Anything raised above and beyond their needs will be reserved to support our grassroots partners in similar crises in the future. We are relieved to report that we have heard from all four of our grassroots partners in Kathmandu—they are all right, and they are working hard to get in touch with the children they serve to determine whether they are safe, and what their needs are. The extensive damage means there will undoubtedly be a great need for emergency supplies—food, clean water, medical supplies, and shelter. This is the kind of critical support you can provide by donating today. We are already receiving reports of shelter concerns. An orphanage served by our grassroots partner Partnership for Sustainable Development Nepal has sustained structural damage, making it unsafe for the children to go inside. This is an issue throughout the valley. Bishnu Bhatta, Partnership for Sustainable Development Nepal’s director, said his organization’s office has also been damaged, and he has been staying outside, as are thousands of other survivors. At this moment, Bishnu and the leaders of our other grassroots partners are assessing the needs of the children, their families, and other survivors in the community. We are standing by to disburse your donations as soon as possible to assist them. As you know, our locally based partners in Nepal are on the front lines every day, working with children who were already living under fragile circumstances before the earthquake. A disaster like this means they need our support now more than ever—

please donate today. We are incredibly grateful that we can count on you during this difficult time. Thank you for your generosity—it is a beacon of hope in the wake of such a terrible crisis. With great appreciation, Susan Goodell

Nordic Climate Finance Opportunities
A new report from The Nordic Council of Ministers: Nordic Climate Finance Opportunities
The goal of reaching an ambitious globally binding climate agreement by 2015 is one of the key challenges that the international community needs to address. Issues on how private finance can be linked to public funding structures to ensure sufficient funding for mitigation and adaptation activities, and how technology transfer could work as part of climate finance continue to be key topics in the upcoming climate negotiations.
This report focuses on the current Nordic climate finance landscape, and uses the Nordic Climate Facility (NCF) as a case study, to offer examples of and lessons learned from practical Nordic climate actions that can be used in on-going and future climate negotiations. The report concludes with eight targeted recommendations that highlight key points and lessons learned that can be used for replication and scaling up of future climate actions.

Dear Ms. Helene H. Oord,
We love making connections and introducing our friends to one another. So when Sarita met Jessie and LaDonna from Tea Collection, we were thrilled to hear that they hit it off. Sarita works for Gram Bharati Samiti (GBS), a GFC grassroots partner in Jaipur, India, that Tea visited last November. After spending just one day with her, Jessie and LaDonna understood why Sarita is a hero to the girls she works with—and now she’s a hero to Jessie and LaDonna, too.GBS works in rural and tribal communities, making sure that girls receive an education and learn how to protect their health, their bodies, and their rights. You can read all about how grassroots leaders like Sarita are changing the world in Tea’s latest blog post.
Today is Global Giving Thursday at Tea Collection. Tea will match each donation made at checkout to GFC, and all donations go to support rural girls in India. Giving to GBS also helps support people like Sarita, who devote their entire careers to improving the lives of children in need.So, shop today, and don’t forget to double your impact and donate to the grassroots heroes of Jaipur.
Happy Shopping, The Global Fund for Children http://gfc.convio.net/site/MessageViewer?dlv_id=8581&em_id=1581.0 1101 14th Street NW, Suite 420 | Washington, DC 20005 | USA The Global Fund for Children © 2015 All rights reserved. –

From: Ursula Miniszewski [mailto:ursula.miniszewski@greengrants.orgSent: Tuesday, March 10, 2015
Subject: Announcing a new report on women’s rights and climate justice
In honor of International Women¹s Day, Global Greengrants is released a new report, Climate Justice and Women’s Rights. It spotlights bold, women-led projects to address climate change in communities around the world. You can download the full report at www.WomenAndClimate.org.
From rising seas to super storms, climate change’s effects are here and they’re growing increasingly devastating. Women and people in marginalized communities the hardest hit, but these same people are also coming up with effective and affordable solutions. Only .01% of foundation funding goes to projects that address both climate and women’s rights.
Climate Justice and Women¹s Rights explains why supporting grassroots women is so important if we really want to make a difference on climate change. It is also the first report of its type to offer case studies and practical tips on how to get resources to local people working at the nexus of women’s rights and climate change.
I would like to ask you personally to assist us in publicizing this new report and WomenAndClimate.org. Here are some suggested Facebook posts and tweets. If you are willing to put something on your website, our communications team will be happy to help promote it.
I’m grateful for any assistance you can offer.

Subject: Role of multilateral climate funds in mobilising private finance

Dear colleagues, On behalf of ODI, I wanted to share the findings from our recent research on the role of multilateral climate funds (MCF) in mobilising private finance: a review of the CTF, GEF, SREP, GEEREF and PPCR. We have also published the underlying data for the report which includes 93 private finance interventions (PFIs) representing $30 billion in MCF, public and private investment. Across this data set we find that every $1.00 of public finance is aiming to mobilise on average $0.80 of private finance. In addition, we can begin to identify patterns in those PFIs that target high levels of private investment. Any feedback you have on these outputs would be very valuable. Please let us know if you have any comments or questions.
