HOW WE ORGANIZE OURSELVES
Today's generation needs to understand how to value money, make it, and share it. And the earlier we start, the better. Equipping them with concepts such as budgeting, economic power, ethics and trade will certainly shape the way the look at money. Hopefully in future, they will become responsible, principled and ethical citizens with a healthy bank balance! It is never too late to start teaching them about money, and here, at The Aga Khan Academy, that is precisely what we did. Our Grade 3s had a fun-filled, busy 6 weeks, where they learnt the following :
The concept of barter trade.
The need for a uniform currency.
Self-organizational skills to set up a business.
The role of knowledge and experience
Partnership. And a whole lot more!
