Partner of the Week: (Programme Éducation Financière) – Ivory Coast

Programme Éducation Financière (PEF) is an initiative by the Ministry of Education in Ivory Coast that aims to provide training and teachings on financial education. The programme targets teachers and all the pedagogical staff accompanying children in their education, students from primary to secondary school, and student’s parents and guardians.

The primary objectives of the PEF are to sensitise the beneficiaries on the good practices of finance and the use of financial services adapted to their needs. The programme also seeks to provide children and youth with foundational skills on budgeting and planning as well as to train them on saving and managing natural resources.



Our Partnership

PEF and Aflatoun International are working together to support the 2019-2024 National Financial Inclusion Strategy and achieve its Education objectives. They are assisting the Education and Training departments in assessing the best approaches to integrate Financial Education into the national curricula. This support was officialised in the validation workshop of the National Strategy for Financial Inclusion in which Aflatoun International was appointed as a technical provider in the Client Protection and Financial Education Group.


Youth Clubs as Tools for Peer Support
Young people of Ivory Coast are increasingly interested in money and financial management. As a result, PEF and Aflatoun have founded youth clubs, such as those at Lycee Moderne de Koumassi. These clubs have established a chain of solidarity, allowing members to support friends in difficult financial situations and meet the demands and expenses of the new school year.
