Aflatoun is an international network of NGOs, with its secretariat based in Amsterdam. It currently has over 150 partnerships in 102 countries and to date has reached over three million children between the ages of three and 18. Aflatoun educates children about their rights and responsibilities. It also equips them with skills to save and manage money, and set up their own social and financial enterprises.
Aflatoun seeks to harness the early period in a child’s life and give them an educational experience that leaves them with positive associations with money and social change. It believes that the social and economic empowerment of children contributes to the systematic reduction of poverty.
Aflatoun is an ambitious organization; it aims to expand its program to improve the lives of as many children as possible. Aflatoun’s goal is to reach 10 million children in 120 countries by 2015.
