How could the lives of million of people change if they learned to save or to differentiate between necessary and discretionary expenses? This project provides tools and training to teachers so that they can teach these topics in the classroom in an entertaining way by incorporating elements such as well-being. Financial education can make a difference in the lives of children and youth in their daily decisions, preventing them from becoming over indebted and thus improving their quality of life
In Chile, the average household debt is 75%. 70% of teachers assured that they had not received training knowledge to teach about financial education (Center for Public Policies - PUC). Those with financial literacy understand financial concepts better, leading them to budget and save more. Learning how to make adequate decisions regarding money management and how to build relationships with financial institutions is a way to open up opportunities and equality.
Through this initiative, teachers are given concrete tools to encourage learning on financial education issues. They receive: - Board game in the financial field. - Pedagogical and technical training. - Digital platforms with the material for doing different activities. - Access to the App "I learn by playing" with which we seek to motivate and monitor work and progress through gamification.
This project will benefit more than 3,000 students through the annual training of 30 teachers. These teachers will have all the material and knowledge to transfer competencies to their students, in order to provide them better tools. This project is governed by the framework of the SDG "Quality Education" and "Reduction of Inequality".
