Sanchay Chetana (Financial literacy) is considered an important feature for the promotion of financial inclusion and eventual financial stability.
Sanchay Chetana aims at making school students understand the importance of money, how to manage it, concepts of budgeting and saving and thus enable them to be better equipped for the outside world. So far we have trained over 10,000 students from municipal schools across Gujarat. This project is implemented in municipal and private schools for the benefit of less privileged children of the grade 6th to 12th. Sessions are conducted by trained Humankind Change Leaders who donate one hour per week.
Sanchay Chetana curriculum covers five important sessions: Budgeting, Savings, Debt Management, Banking Services, Financial Negotiations. Each module includes a basic overview of the topic and Trainer’s Guide with step-by-step instructions for conducting each learning session.
Financial Literacy program for adults are also provided.
