Company Overview
Aflatoun is an international network of NGOs, with its secretariat based in Amsterdam. It currently has over 190 partnerships in 109 countries and to date has reached 4.5 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 have the Aflatoun Child Social & Financial Education Programme reaching at least 20 million children and young people by 2020, and recognized as the gold standard of social and financial education programs.
