Barclays equips children with financial literacy

Barclays Bank of Botswana and Aflateen have developed a partnership that aims to provide financial literacy to young people in Botswana.

Through the partnership, they organised a one-day workshop to teach students about financial literacy, which usually is attended by the students who stood out from all the schools that participated. Students who participated in the programme this year were from Artesia JSS, Tlokweng JSS, Maikano JSS and Ithuteng JSS and Lentswe primary school attended the workshop.

The day consisted of team building activities and Aflateen sessions designed for different club members. The sessions covered topics, which included saving and spending, planning and budgeting, social and financial enterprises, personal understanding and exploration as well as rights and responsibilities. Barclays Bank Communications Relations Manager Yodit Kassaye-Molosi said, through this partnership they wanted to focus on the economic side and make sure they look at opportunities for young people to develop enterprise skills.
