AFRO-SEED School Banking program is a fun, interactive and engaging way for primary and secondary school students in Africa to learn about how to be money smart, develop smart savings culture and investment skills.


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.


To make the programme more engaging and exciting for all participants we have included a competition component the “Smart Class Award” and “Wise School Award”.
