EMpower to benefit from Citi’s 5th e for Education campaign!

Posted 11 September 2017 in EMpower News   |   Share


On Tuesday, 12 September, Citi’s 5th annual e for Education campaign launched! EMpower is proud and pleased to have been chosen as one of the seven philanthropic organizations to benefit from the campaign again this year. The global initiative has raised over $16 million to support education-focused non-profits.

Citi’s global initiative is in response to the critical challenge that young people face in accessing education. A recent survey commissioned by the Citi Foundation and conducted by Ipsos based on interviews of over 7,000 young people in 45 cities across 32 countries showed that 69% of young people see education as beyond their financial means.

To help meet this challenge, over the next 10 weeks Citi’s FX business will donate $1 for every $1 million of FX traded with Citi via a broad range of electronic platforms including Citi’s proprietary platforms- Citi Velocity for institutional clients and CitiFX Pulse for corporate clients.

EMpower’s global footprint and work with at-risk youth in emerging market countries is a perfect fit for this campaign. A core building block of our youth development work is education. See more about what we do and how our work with local grantee partners in 15 countries gives some of the most disadvantaged and hard-to-reach youth access to a quality, relevant education HERE.
