Young Entrepreneur Foundation teaches children about money

Young Entrepreneur Foundation offers financial literacy and enterprise programmes to children from previously disadvantages communities.

The programme, which relies on donor funds from corporate and government entities - targets children as young as seven to foster valuable entrepreneurial skills.

When you are 7 years old - believe it or not - you can learn how to start and run your own micro-enterprise. You can also learn financial literacy.

The age-specific programmes are categorised as follows:

  • Minipreneurs (between ages 7 to 8)
  • On-Your-Marks (between ages 9 to 12)
