The actions of the Institute focus on specific sections of the population, such as our new generation, parents who have just had children, women who, according to international studies, have lower levels of financial literacy and economic migrants who objectively face greater integration problems.
From an early age, children should gradually understand basic concepts such as needs, desires, money, work, entrepreneurship, lending, budgeting, charity and savings.
Preparing adolescents for a successful and happy adult life has to do with them becoming aware of their potential, building the right skills and knowledge and protecting them from future financial and other mistakes such as over-indebtedness, wrong investment choices, and myopic perception of the globalized professional environment.
Young parents and those planning to set up a family should be able to make correct and responsible decisions about the future of their family.
According to international studies that took place in both developing and developed countries, women have a lower level of financial skills and literacy.
As life expectancy is rising and people live longer, they need to secure, early on, sufficient income for the third phase of their life through systematic, long-term savings and appropriate investments.
Immigrants are undoubtedly a particularly vulnerable social group. Therefore, for their smooth integration, it is necessary to place special emphasis on their financial education from the very first moment of their presence in the host country, with a special approach and the appropriate means for them.
