Based upon an environmental scan and reflections on the lessons learned, including a survey among the network partners, the new strategy for the organisation (2016-2020) has been developed. The coming five years we are committed to work together towards Social & Financial Education being recognised as an integral element of quality education and a key enabler for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. Aflatoun International should be recognised as the thought leader on Child Social & Financial Education. An active global network will exchange ideas, experiences and best-practices on important issues like SFE implementation, delivering at scale with equity and quality assurance. The strategy document outlines the key strategic directions for the
next five years.
