Building A Financially Capable Generation - BAFCG


Discussions and online game-led activities are used to teach key financial capability concepts to youths. Training sessions lasting 4 hours (2 sessions of 2 hrs) will be delivered by volunteers, bringing their experience from industry into the classroom.

A particular focus will be placed on an online educational game/app, called FinQuest, which will be the main means of delivery for this programme.

Several different “quests” will teach children foundational aspects of money management, such as managing cash flow, planning for the future, and using financial services.

Learning can be assessed by the “Quest Leader”, a teacher in each school, who will be able to see everyone’s scores and track their progress.

The programme will culminate in a National Innovation Challenge on 27th March 2023, where the winning teams from each school will face off in a national competition. The winner will represent Malta in the GLOBAL FinCap Challenge 2023, which will be a 3-hour online event (date and time TBC.)
