Aflatoun Child Savings International is an NGO registered in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Its mission is ''Inspiring children to socially and economically empower themselves to become agents of change for themselves and for a more equitable world".
The goal of helping children realize their potential to improve the world through education is what brought Aflatoun into existence. The particular importance of financial education has also come into clear focus in recent years. Despite living in a rapidly changing global economy, adults and young people have extremely low levels of financial literacy worldwide and schools and teachers too often lack the tools to address this challenge. On top of this lack of knowledge about financial matters, children and young people are increasingly exposed to socially, environmentally and economically unsustainable patterns of consumption. Aflatoun addresses these issues by providing a balanced social and financial education curriculum to empower children to better overcome these challenges. This is accomplished via a network of partner organizations in over 90 countries linked together by the global Aflatoun secretariat based in the Netherlands.
Aflatoun is looking for Volunteer English to Danish translators to translate Educational Materials for primary or secondary school. Translators should allocate at least 1 h work per week. The work can be done from home.
