Financial empowerment programme seek to develop a strong sense of economic citizenship in chidren by focus on educating them how money works in the world, how to manage themselves and their limited resources better. After seven years of promoting social and financial education in maind of China, Be Better realised the need to simplify and gamify the social and financial education that enable us to carry out program in large scale and reach out to much more vulnerable children. Aflatoun Box is the result of gamification in which there are six 60-minute child-friendly financial games. Teachers and volunteers could directly facilitate social and financial education according to the game manuals and online training video instead of 5-10 days offline training. Through these games, the children were introduced to the concepts of teamwork, personal management, business integrity; concept of earning, savings, spending, investing and donating. Note: Aflatoun is a social and financial education curriculum brought in from Aflatoun International in Netherlands. Be Better have the exclusive use of copyright in China, and simplify and gamifying the Aflatoun curriculum to Aflatoun Box.
