Six day financial education jungle jamboree or er, international partnerships

 

We believe that the education MyBnk provides is vital for all young people and have shared our expertise with organisations across the globe.

A recent example of our international work is with Save the Children’s Youth Save initiative in Columbia who contextualised some of our Money Twist material, with a focus on getting young people interested in saving, setting goals and utilising banking services.

It’s not very often we can say: six-day financial education jungle jamboree.

But, earlier this year 500 young people gathered at Tibaitatá Corpoica Park near Bogotá for an Inter-American Scout fest in partnership with Fondo Nacional de Ahorro (National Savings Fund) – using MyBnk materials.

Hands up!

This included a savings fair with stands on topics such as the benefits of opening a bank account and how debt can be necessary to improve one’s financial prospects, higher education for example.

Core subject knowledge was also used to run a “Savings Week” with Banco Caja Social in several schools in the city of Medellin, reaching 400 teenagers.

We’ll have more from our other international partners soon. Check our Work With Us section to find out how your organisation can get involved.
