  3. 3. SchoolBank – Objectives: Increase financial inclusion through a school adoption program Impart Economic Citizenship Education(ECE) through the schools To develop the next generation of economic citizens + 1 2 Each bank branch will adopt a school in its vicinity to open bank accounts and offer transaction support School teachers are trained to teach the Economic Citizenship Curriculum in each school 3 #Commit100M #GMW2015
  4. 4. Why the SchoolBank approach works 1. It links financial inclusion and financial education – optimally preparing the children for their future 2. It is a structured approach which makes it easier to: − Scale up − Ensure consistency in quality − Create sustainable impact (continued provision of financial services to children) 3. Using the school adoption program (where each bank branch adopts at least one school in its vicinity) dramatically increases the reach of the program, even in rural areas 4. Dependent on the operating model chosen, it can be much easier for children in rural areas to become financially included as they do not need to visit a bank branch to deposit and withdraw money 5. We can link technological solutions to the project to increase the impact, through partnerships with technological and telecommunications companies 4 #Commit100M #GMW2015
