Operation HOPE + Partners Launch Wikia-Operation HOPE Global Money Initiative

It’s not often that one is present for history in the making, but last week, members of the press in the United States and Casablanca, Morocco, were witness to the launch of a pioneering partnership between financial literacy empowerment nonprofit Operation HOPE, Inc. (HOPE), the Casablanca Stock Exchange (CSE), and Wikia. Leadership from each partner organization came together via web conference to launch of the Wikia-Operation HOPE Global Money Initiative(Global Money), the first global financial literacy tool.

The partners in the Global Money Initiative were appropriately linked up online from around the world for the launch – Operation HOPE Founder, Chairman and CEO John Hope Bryant and Moroccan Ambassador to the U.S. Aziz Mekouar in Washington, DC; Wikipedia Founder and Wikia Co-Founder Jimmy Wales in London; CSE CEO Karim Hajji in Morocco, and Civil Rights Leader Ambassador Andrew Young in Los Angeles.

So… What is Global Money?

Read Operation HOPE’s live coverage of the event and listen to the key players explain it here on the Operation HOPE blog.

Kudos to Operation HOPE for their continued focus on empowering the globe by offering “a hand up and not a hand out.”
