Aflatoun International holds events and regional meetings to strengthen the Aflatoun network in each region, raise awareness of social and financial education, highlight the work of our partners, and continuously innovate the empowering of children and young people.
ENERGISING THE GLOBAL MOVEMENT FOR SOCIAL AND FINANCIAL EDUCATION
Aflatoun International is delighted to invite all our partners, friends, and supporters to the Global Launch of the new strategic plan that will guide us throughout 2022-2026. The event will take place online on March 3, 2022 at 11 am Central European Time.
Aflatoun pioneered social and financial education (SFE) fifteen years ago when financial education for children was still essentially taboo. In the years since, Aflatoun has worked with over 300 partner organisations and 40+ governments in over 100 countries. Research evidence has shown the positive impact of SFE in children and youth’s educational performance and financial habits.
Today, we believe Aflatoun remains uniquely positioned to bring essential life and financial skills to children and youth worldwide. The voices of children, our partners, and our stakeholders were at the centre of building our strategy for 2022–2026.
Over the next five years, by training over 250,000 teachers, growing the Aflatoun movement to 600 partner organisations and working towards national integration with governments and multilateral agencies in over 60 countries, we aim to reach 60 million children and youth.
The event is open for all those interested and will be broadcast in English, French, Spanish, Russian, and Arabic.
Join Our Online Panel Discussion!
On November 25, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, Aflatoun kicked off the campaign “Education Without Limits: Young women on the journey to empowerment” in order to showcase the impact stories of the “Elimu Haina Mwisho: Skills Development programme for Young Women through FDCs” project which was implemented in Tanzania by the local partner Karibu Tanzania Organization (KTO) and funded by the Mastercard Foundation. The campaign will end with the online panel discussion on December 16, 2021.
The panel will focus on innovative approaches in skills development programmes, including KTO’s approach to support young out-of-school women. During the panel, we will also discuss social and financial education’s contribution towards eliminating GBV, and the creation of a safe environment for women and girls to thrive economically and personally

The 2021 Regional Meeting for Anglophone Africa will provide an opportunity for network partners to get key insights in to the opportunities and achievements during 2021. More specifically, we will look at newly launched Financial Education and Financial Inclusion strategies. Additionally, we will take this opportunity to look at key innovations in the sector of Digital Education. Digital is the direction the world is going and as a network, we will look into opportunities to leverage innovations to reach the most vulnerable. As Aflatoun approaches the launch of the 2022-2026 strategy, this meeting will also be an opportunity to reflect on the engagement and collaboration within the partner network. In doing so participants will contribute to finding new ways to engage with partners in the network and the Aflatoun Secretariat.
Before kicking off the Regional Meeting, the Aflatoun Secretariat will present the key findings from the Aflatoun Strategy Survey and Focus Group Discussions conducted and completed by the Aflatoun Partner Network
