Aflatoun's social and financial education empowers children and young people worldwide to make a positive change in their lives and communities, enabling them to create a sustainable future. It teaches children and young people about their rights and responsibilities, encourages them to save money and resources, and start social and financial enterprises, turning dependence into independence.
Aflatoun's educational program was refined over ten years of rigorous research globally. Following a ten country global pilot project, the program has been scaled to 116 countries, reaching 4.1 million children and young people each year. Aflatoun International creates high-quality curricula, for different age groups, which can be contextualised to local needs and specific circumstances, and are implemented by its partners. In addition, educators are provided with training to teach the Aflatoun child-centred, active learning method, which can be taught both in classrooms and out of school.
Aflatoun's work is grounded in the belief that all children around the world, including the most vulnerable ones, should have access to high-quality social and financial education allowing them not only to survive but thrive in the 21st century.
