Why Financial Literacy?

We are training the first generation of financially literate children in Africa. Not everybody’s 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. Also, you can’t be an entrepreneur unless you are financially literate.
