Aflatoun, Child Savings International, is a non-governmental organisation based in The Netherlands. Aflatoun promotes and provides social and financial education to different age groups, ranging from early childhood to youth. Aflatoun works as a social franchise, in which the network partners are independent, also financially, but make use of the support from the Secretariat when needed.
This model where the Aflatoun Secretariat acts as a resource centre means that partners have full ownership and adapt the materials for curriculum, training, monitoring and evaluation to implement fully contextualised Aflatoun programmes. In addition, the Secretariat supports network partners in developing and implementing advocacy strategies to promote life skills education and training to relevant authorities. This includes Aflatoun Academy focusing on training trainers and teachers through Teacher Training Institutes.
Today, Aflatoun, together with its 152 partners, offers social and financial programmes to 2.3 million children and youth in 103 countries.
