CYFI are very lucky to have an active Network, and one of our youngest members of the CYFI Youth Network, Jhose Adolofo Quisocala Condori, is a great example of the role young people play in bringing about change!
At just 10 years old, Jhose has been very active throughout previous GMW celebrations and was Awarded a special recognition for his work in promoting financial inclusion for youth in his native country of Peru.
What Jhose says about himself:
'Despite my young age, I am very happy to be a part of the CYFI Youth Network. I grew up with CYFI, my first participation as a finalist for the Financial Inclusion category of the CYFI Youth Awards competition in 2013, which instilled in me the interest in developing activities for children and youth. Having won the "Financial Youth Landscape" Youth Awards Prize in 2014 in NYC at the United Nations, I have committed myself to continue working for the development of Financial Inclusion of children and young people in Peru.
"Ser miembro del Comité de Jóvenes, es uno "Honor" para mi, y una gran responsabilidad para con los jóvenes de la región de las Américas y el Caribe. asumo este reto con mucha humildad y responsabilidad." (“It is an honor for me to be a member of the Youth Committee, and a great responsibility for the young people of the Americas and the Caribbean. I take on this role with humbleness and responsibility.")
