Children's Museum Jordan
GMW2019 marked the first year that the Children’s Museum led activities for children and youth in Jordan. With the program organized, the Museum aimed to enhance the financial literacy of children aged 4 to 12 years old, through activities and workshops, organized in collaboration with its partners. During the activities, children had the opportunity to make wallets and piggy banks, with the aim for them to learn about saving, spending and sharing. Additionally, they played board games, like Monopoly, to develop their money management skills. Parents were also invited to participate in an awareness raising workshop, to learn practical steps needed to teach their children important financial skills.

Little Savers
Little Savers, together with the Children Museum, organized multiple activities, including 2 interactive workshops for children and one awareness session for their parents. The first workshop was targeted to children aged 6-8 years old, titled “Let’s Count, Let’s Play”, which was aimed at explaining different ways money can be used and learning how to recognize Jordanian currency, namely by shape, color and the size of bills and coins. The second workshop was targeted to children aged 9-12 years old, titled “Needs and Wants”. This session aimed to teach the children the differences between needs and wants, by using interactive activities and identifying saving goals. In addition to the activities in the Children Museum, Little Savers held a Facebook Live Session on the 360Moms platform, to raise awareness on financial literacy for children, including tips on how to raise money-smart children. Additionally, an article was published in Kidoz Times Newspaper, which focuses on the importance of financial education for children.
