CHA-CHING Curriculum™ is a program about six band members whose exciting adventures teach them about key money concepts – Earn, Save, Spend and Donate. This financial literacy curriculum, funded by Prudential Insurance, targets primary school students between the ages of 7 to 12 years old and is designed to improve access to information and activities that support the growing and critical need for financial literacy among the young people.
There are six lesson plans implemented over six weeks and are designed to run as additional learning added on any school programs. The program uses multiple platforms such as music videos and board games, for students to learn and apply key money management concepts within and outside the school setting. Students acquire critical and essential financial concepts to make wise money management decisions while utilizing the different platforms CHA-CHING offers to consolidate and enhance learning.
JA Ghana and Prudential Volunteers facilitate the sessions, sharing how their day-to- day habits and work tie into being money smart and generally serve as mentors to the students.
