What makes the aflatoun program different

What makes the Aflatoun Program Different?

The balance of social and financial education is what makes the Aflatoun concept so unique.

Aflatoun believes that a combination on economic empowerment and social education achieves holistic and sustainable empowerment.

The Program targets children aged 6-14 (an age range that has not received much focus) in schools, alternative education and non-formal settings.

Its methodology is engaging and child friendly, and puts children at the Centre of the learning process through songs, stories, games and worksheets.
