Program Description: 

Junior Achievement Nigeria implements economic education programs that develop skills and attitudes necessary for personal success and social responsibility. The overarching goal of the programs is to build a bridge between the classroom and the workplace. The More Than Money program is therefore targeted toward children of primary school age, particularly children in grades 4-6.

The More Than Money program has three pillars: financial literacy (identifying needs as opposed to wants), entrepreneurship, and work readiness. The program teaches children about earning, saving, sharing, and investing money.

The mobile app of More Than Money was developed in partnership with Co-creation Hub, a technology innovations incubator, to reinforce lessons learned in the classroom through fun and games. The mobile app is available on Google Play store. The app takes the children through the three pillars of the program.
