Aflatoun International manages programmes that are based on three curricula: Aflatot, Aflatoun and Aflateen. Partners are encouraged to further adapt these, either to fit local circumstances or to complement their existing programmes. Regional and national versions of our curricula have been created in 45 languages and have been adapted to complement programmes on issues as diverse as girls’ empowerment, peacebuilding and disabled learners.
Early childhood offers a unique opportunity for positive learning experiences, which lay the foundation for children to reach their full potential. Environmental and other factors have a powerful influence on attitudes learned at a young age, shaping their future development. Hence, the emphasis on initiating social and financial education at this early stage, equipping them with the tools to change their circumstances and effect a positive transformation on their society.More
Aflatoun’s core programme focuses on children of primary school age, because new attitudes and behaviours are most easily absorbed during this time. It is a fundamental period in personal development, where literacy, numeracy and basic skills become ingrained and part of everyday life. Our curricula can be used within formal primary education, but for those without access to schools we have developed the Non-Formal Education manual.More
Tailored specifically to teenagers, the Aflateen programme stimulates young people to question their identity and the world around them more. Young people aged fourteen to nineteen years-old work through modules that blend elements of social and financial education. They also learn about money and markets that affect their lives. This helps them navigate the modern world and prepare them for an increasingly complex and demanding job market.More
Alongside the Aflateen programme, we’ve developed the Aflateen + programme which focuses on gender equality and economic prosperity for girls and women, addressing issues faced by girls and women in developing countries. Because of this, the main target group of Aflateen + are girls aged between 15 and 18. The Aflateen + programme gives girls and women the opportunity to learn about their rights and tackle not only ethical issues, but economic and financial ones too.More
The Life Skills and Financial Education for Peace Curriculum is based on the Aflatoun curriculum but adapted to a (post) conflict context. The programme has the potential to assist in conflict transformation by giving children and young people the skills to promote understanding and critical thinking vital to analyse the underlying cause(s) of conflict. They become active participants in society and can develop their skills to stimulate local economies through the creation of micro enterprises, which has the power to contribute to sustainable peacebuilding.More
