Save and start, education for kids


"Save and start" is being implemented in 22 schools benefiting 119 teachers and 3,033 students from elementary to high school.

All of them received workbooks (printed and digital), which allow them to acquire the expected knowledge. These books and all the classes of the program are based on 4 training axes; empowerment, financial health, economic citizenship and entrepreneurship, as well as 8 cross-cutting themes; sustainable development, self-knowledge, self-esteem, culture of peace, inclusion, gender equity, rights and responsibilities, and risk management.

The students had classes once a week, one hour each. Taking a total of 25 hours. The program is implemented in 2 phases, Project 1 where financial education issues are addressed, and Project II where issues related to entrepreneurship are reviewed. Project I is reviewed in the first semester and Project II in the second semester of the school year.

We develop educational capsules on YouTube, to reach more students and so that the children we support can review them whenever they want.
You can see them here:
1. Emotions and how to regulate them: 
2. The meaning of life: 
3. Budget linked to personal goals:
4. Economic Citizenship:
5. Stages of entrepreneurship:
6. Responsible consumption:

A sample of 30% of the students was evaluated. The results were:

  • 40% of students save at least 60% of a set goal.
  • 21% of students save between 60% and 80% of a set goal.
  • 40% of students save 100% or more than a set goal.
  • 90% of the students carried out the planning of an undertaking throughout the second semester of the school year.
  • • Students perceive that the program helps them identify their abilities and talents.
  • 80% of students identify their talents, skills or abilities and put them into practice during the design of their venture.
  • 15% of the students identify a topic of interest for the development of their ventures.
