5 Booklets, 2 videos, and one app: the Finkit financial education kit
The Finkit team has developed a set of financial education tools targeted to older people. These tools are meant to increase the capacity of practitioners, such as trainers/ coaches/volunteers, programme developers, policy makers, local development agencies, financial players to successfully transfer financial knowledge to individuals at risk.
This set of tools is to be used as a support for social operators to approach and successfully transfer financial knowledge to individuals at risk. the purpose is to help older people to deal with some of the risks that can be associated to their age: financial fragility, risk of being the victim of frauds or manipulations.
These tools can be employed in financial education programmes as well as in informal training sessions.
Through Finkit we hope to support the development of economic-financial education as an essential element of citizenship. Indeed, it is important that operators assisting older people can implement measures to actively involve the beneficiaries of the programs, so as to promote their social inclusion, making them more aware of the good practices for better wealth management.
The kit can be requested for free by associations/individuals involved with financial education programs. Please e-mail Silvia Maero (firstname.lastname@example.org).
