ACCA Launches Financial Literacy Programme For Children
ACCA India launches a fun-filled Financial Literacy programme for children
The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), the global professional body for professional accountants, has launched a Financial Literacy programme to create awareness on how to manage one’s finances, which is an essential and critical life skill to develop. Amidst the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, the Financial Literacy programme has been conceptualised with the help of ACCA members in India.
Each of the four modules is delivered through fun, child-friendly characters such as Fefy (Financial Education for You) – a 16-year-old girl from a village near Bangalore, and Mani, a robot gift that Fefy got from her uncle working in Bangalore. Mani shares their knowledge of finance with Fefy so that she can manage her money as she grows older.
The ACCA Financial Literacy programme comprises unique features like Storytelling and mascots, where mascots will take students through a wonderful storytelling journey to teach them about finance. It includes fun activities throughout, and group learning exercises that will help children grasp the topics better. Children will learn through digital and animated content which is less text-heavy.
The programme will also focus on behavioural changes which will make children excited about taking control of their lives. Children will be able to record their learning in a unique way to personalise their learning through Scrapbook activities. This programme will get both teachers and children more engaged in classes as they are full of thought-provoking discussions and observation of their environment.
