Aflatoun International Annual Report 2021

2021 was another difficult year for many children and youth around the world due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with the educational provision and students’ learning continuing to be impacted globally. Despite the challenging operating environment Aflatoun partners displayed resilience and flexibility in continuously adapting to a very unpredictable situation in most countries. This report shows that through their innovative approaches rooted and being rooted in the communities they continued to reach a significant number of children and youth, especially many living in vulnerable families and communities. Millions of children and young people were reached by the Aflatoun partners with essential Social and Financial Education.

2021 was also a year of transition for the organization. While continuing to support our partner network to cope with the consequences of the COVID pandemic, we used this period as a transition and we organize a comprehensive consultation process to develop a new five‑year strategy (2022-2026) reflecting the priorities to effectively respond to current global issues and inequalities.

The need to energise and empower our world’s 2.2 billion children and youth with essential social and financial skills is bigger than ever before. The world needs children and youth who possess socioemotional and financial skills, who are not only able to but who dare to think critically and act as agents of change in their own lives for a more equitable and sustainable world.

The new 2022‑2026 Global Strategy – Energising the Global Movement for Social & Financial Education – articulates how the network will further scale its efforts to ensure children and young people, especially the most vulnerable, access high‑quality, inclusive, learner‑centered social and financial education.
