Team Los Ponys, 5th grade. Honduras:

“"Aflatoun teaches us the habit of saving, which we think is excellent because it teaches us to be economically responsible. Now, if an issue with money occurs we are not so worried anymore, because we can take what we need from the piggy bank.” ”

Empowered Children

Aflatoun believes that children have the ability to take charge of their own lives and transform them for the better. The programme empowers them to make a positive change in their lives and communities. Aflatoun Children save in some form, either through individual savings or group savings accounts with local cooperative banks, postal banks and local microfinance institutions. Aflatoun children also set up social and financial enterprises that positively affect their communities. The small profits earned are invested into additional community projects, school outings and school materials.
