Yellow Cowries’ Approach to Financial Literacy

Yellow Cowries has approached the tough challenge of improving financial literacy by providing financial literacy coaching and mentoring, leveraging its unique group sessions, ‘Yellow Cowries Financial Literacy Learning Clubs/Circles’ in secondary schools and Universities (YC Clubs/Circles). These activities run as after-school programs, clubs, seminars, group interactions, etc. using the following Yellow Cowries proprietary tools.

YC Financial Literacy Book (Curriculum):

Yellow Cowries’ flagship book titled “Financial Wellbeing: How to Plan, Save and Invest for Financial Freedom” is a comprehensive curriculum, currently used in the YC Clubs and circles.

Games

These games contain financial literacy tips, which players learn during rounds of playing. The game is also available on the Google Play store as a Mobile App.

Yellow Cowries Learning Clubs/Circles (YC Clubs/Circles):

These are group sessions that leverage the Yellow Cowries curriculum to discuss and learn financial tips. These typically take place in small or large groups within schools, groups, and associations. The club sessions happen once weekly, and it takes members from 6 to 25 weeks to complete the YC curriculum (depending on the partner’s preference).

Budgeting Tools and Resources

Yellow Cowries provides templates for preparing budget plans to help keep users on track for a financially secure future. This also promotes a culture of financial planning in the users, as they practice the learnings from the game and curriculum.
