As per a survey by the National Centre for Financial Education, 73% of Indians are not financially literate. Further, India’s school and college education ecosystems are not offering any kind of learnings in this segment. Addressing this, IAMIN World’s platform will offer a unique approach to address the financial literacy gap among kids by utilizing comic style curriculum content to resonate with them. The platform is built on the understanding that financial literacy is habit-forming learning which needs to be inculcated at an early learning age. The curriculum followed on the platform is designed to give a personalized experience to kids while covering all intrinsic aspects of age-appropriate financial literacy. The curriculum has been customized for each age group based on the understanding level of kids.
Further, the platform will allow kids to kickstart their financial journey from a young age, with real money. This will be facilitated through IAMIN World’s partnership with RBL bank for a prepaid card and financial transactions. This learning through actual monetary transactions will be available for teens from Grade 7-12. The Prepaid cards, issued by RBL Bank, utilizes the parents’ KYC as per the Bank’s guideline.
