Taking advantage of the great learning capacity of children, Unicaja's Edufinet Project includes primary school students in its financial education programme. The goal is to provide them with the tools that will enable them to face future challenges related to the economy and finances.

 

The ‘Edufinet Kids’ Workshops, which have a national scope, are aimed at students in the last grades of primary education and, in this first edition, will run until the end of the current school year, always with the aim that, from an early age, children acquire the knowledge that will be essential for them in the future.

 

The 1st Workshop on Financial Education for Primary School Students, sponsored by Funcas Educa, presents basic financial content through problems that children have to solve. This initiative also allows them to have their queries and curiosities answered.

 

With regard to the contents, the workshops cover topics such as budgeting, income and expenses; financial decision making; savings and investment; and credit and loans.

 

In this way, students in the last grades of primary school join other groups of students with whom Edufinet works, such as secondary school and baccalaureate students, those in vocational training or university students. The project also features a web portal for young people, called Edufinext, and a financial videogame.

 

 

Pioneering project

 

The Edufinet Project, promoted by Unicaja Banco and Fundación Unicaja, has been in operation since the end of 2007, although its development began in 2005. Some thirty entities collaborate with the project, including institutions, business organizations and universities.

 

Therefore, Unicaja, one of the first institutions in Spain to launch an initiative of this type, is one of the most active agents in the fields of financial education and inclusion, in the exercise of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and its commitment to society.

 

Edufinet’s website has registered so far more than 10 million visits, with consults and access from 180 countries. The project also has a YouTube channel and Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn profiles.
