Visual demonstration of academic performance and parental involvement in Ghana
YouthSave is a pioneering project designed to increase savings and development among low-income youth in Colombia, Ghana, Kenya, and Nepal. The goals of YouthSave research are to measure the uptake, savings outcomes, experiences, and impacts of youth savings accounts (YSAs) on clients and financial institutions. In Ghana, a rigorous research design that includes a control group with quantitative and qualitative evidence has been implemented to assess the impact of savings accounts on youth development and asset accumulation.
