Aflatoun International – Child Social and Financial Education

Partner of the week – Plan International Egypt

Plan International Egypt is our partner of the week

 

Plan International aims to achieve lasting improvements in the quality of life of children in developing countries, by enabling them, their families and communities to meet their basic needs. In Egypt, Plan works on healthcare, quality education, child protection and economic empowerment.

 

Plan Egypt is Aflatoun International’s lead partner in Egypt since 2007. The Aflatoun curriculum has been translated into Arabic, contextualised for the Egyptian setting and is implemented in formal and non-formal settings.

 

Currently, Plan Egypt implements the programme in 7 governorates in partnership with local Community Development Associations (CDA), several partner NGOs and support from the Egyptian Ministry of Education. The programme is now implemented in 100 formal schools, 150 girl friendly schools, 50 community schools as well as 500 youth groups in 70 Community Development Associations.

 

Together with the Egyptian Banking Institution, Plan Egypt is working towards the integration of the Aflatoun programme into the national curriculum as part of a strategy to improve financial literacy.
