The importance of entrepreneurship cannot be over-emphasised, as entrepreneurial ventures are the major source of new jobs in the economy, BUT in addition to entrepreneurship, we offer FINANCIAL LITERACY training because not everybody is going to be an entrepreneur, but everybody should be financially literate. Financial literacy is a base requirement like spelling or reading that everybody should acquire at any early age. When kids are taught the specific lessons of money management, they can not only apply their skills towards building a business for themselves, but they can also apply the skills they have learned to their personal lives. The financial habits you develop when you are young are going to go with you into your adulthood. We are training the first generation of financially literate children in Africa and it is the BEST investment you can make in your child’s future.
Our programmes allow kids to discover money through play and a collection of fun interactive, multi-media minds-on and hands-on activities, games, simulations, videos and online applications. Yes, we edutain; educate and engage through entertainment and play. The content, format and activities have been developed by local and international professionals in order to accommodate multiple learning styles and ensure that kids “experience money” in a fun and constructive way.
Responsible money management is an important life skill — and one that should be taught to kids. We believe that the earlier kids are taught, the greater the likelihood of their financial success throughout life. These programmes will teach kids everything that relates to money and will also make them more aware of their own behaviour around money. Kids will become more skilled in understanding & practising proper money management.
