BRUSSELS, 9 May 2018 – The WSBI programme “Making Small Scale Savings Work" will be on display at this year's European Development Days taking place on 5-6 June in Brussels. The institute will have for the first time a stand that is titled “Linkage banking with savings groups: Empowering women," which is in-line with this year's EDD theme “Women and Girls at the Forefront of Sustainable Development: protect, empower, invest".
Organised by the European Commission, the three-day EDD event brings together the development community each year to share ideas and experiences in ways that inspire new partnerships and innovative solutions to the world's most pressing challenges. The Making Small Scale Savings Work programme is a partnership with the Mastercard Foundation to help boost financial access and economic development in six African countries.
