BANKING WEEK


AFRO-STUDENTS BANKING WEEK

An annual event that is aimed at facilitating financial inclusion by creating awareness on importance of banking- savings and investment. The event will highlight various banking products and services designed for students in primary and secondary schools across Africa.

HOW IT WORKS

Participating schools choose one day in a week as the School Banking day and students bring in their weekly deposits along with their deposit books to class. They will be collected and processed by fellow students who are trained to serve as class bankers by AFRO-SEED and partnering bank. Students who deposits money during weekly banking days earn “Smart-kids” tokens, which they accumulate and redeem them at the end of the term for fantastic surprises gift items provided by banking partners. Students need to have made a minimum of 8 School Banking deposits in a term to redeem a reward.

Activities carried out by schools and their students include:


STEP 1


Visits to Banks and Central Banks.
