On Monday, October 9, 2023, the bustling city of Vilnius witnessed a significant gathering of project managers from across Europe. They convened to discuss the culmination of their collaborative efforts on the European project named FLIGHT – an acronym for Financial Literacy for Investment, Growth, Help, and Teamwork.
Hosted at the prestigious International House of Vilnius, the meeting was graced by Skaidre and Vilma from Versli Mama (Lithuania). The consortium also included Diana from We Are Entrepreneurs (Denmark), Jo from Prios Kompetanse (Norway), Karolina from Akademia WSEI (Poland), and the dynamic duo of Sophia and Munara from Weltgewandt (Germany).

The FLIGHT project has been a beacon of hope and knowledge for many, and its achievements are a testament to the dedication of its members. Here’s a glimpse of what has been developed:

- A Critical Review of Digital Financial Literacy for Adult Women in Germany
- Financial Landscapes in Lithuania, Poland, Denmark, and Norway

Investment and Personal Finances Curriculum: This includes the DAT (Personal Risk Tolerance Self-Assessment tool) designed to aid in training sessions.
Fraud Protection Curriculum: A vital guide on fraud protection practices, including the Romance Fraud Simulation tool (DAT) for training purposes.
Help Club Groups: Spread across the five participant countries, these groups saw the active participation of over 100 women.

Empowering women to stride confidently towards financial freedom.
