About us

Aflatoun International is an NGO based in the Netherlands offering social and financial education to children and young people worldwide. Through a strong network of 200 partners and 28 governments the organisation reaches 4 million children and young people each year in more than 100 countries. Aflatoun International creates high-quality curricula, for different age groups, which can be contextualised to local needs or specific circumstances. In addition, teachers are provided with training and we conduct research to evaluate the quality and effectiveness of our programmes.

Vision

Socially and economically empowered children who act as agents of change in their own lives for a more equitable world.

Mission

Ensure access to quality, inclusive, child-centered Social & Financial Education for all children and young people.

Strategy

In pursuing our vision and mission over the next five years, we aim to increase our influence and intensify support to the network in order to accelerate scale-up of quality programmes for children and young people.

History

In 1991 Aflatoun started in Mumbai, India, as a project by Jeroo Billimoria, who was doing research at the Tata School of Social Studies. They began working with schools to bring rich and poor children together to learn about each others’ lives.

  • Aflatoun Annual report

    The Annual Report 2015 marks a moment to review and reflect on our work during the 2011-2015 strategic period. The chance for a thorough review was particularly relevant given the magnitude of events taking place on the global stage as well as the end of the Millennium Development Goals.
