10thousandgirl Campaign

Financial literacy program for women

The 10thousandgirl Campaign provides young women across Australia with the tools and motivation to map out their life goals and to understand the cornerstone financial principles that underpin long term saving and investing, in the process contributing to our global economic wellbeing through the use of microfinance.

10thousandgirl’s key aim is to ensure every young woman (15-40 years) and household across Australia:

  • Has a plan for her life (dreams and goals that are written down)

  • Has minimum 3-6 months wages in accessible savings

  • Has relevant insurance in place

  • Is learning to plan, save and invest for a self-funded retirement

  • Is doing what she loves each day

  • Is contributing to our broader economic prosperity and wellbeing and to ending extreme poverty

The 10thousandgirl Campaign supports and encourages young women (15-40) through the process of creating a plan for their future and in laying solid financial foundations to support their goals by providing School, Community and Workplace Presentations, one day Life Planning Workshops and a 12 month Personal Finance Program delivered via bookclub-like GIGs (Girl Investment Groups).

The more Australian girls who take part in the campaign, the more women around the world who are able to break poverty cycles through the provision of micro-loans. We call this the ripple effect.
