Origin and purpose
The EFC plus Civic Association was founded for the purpose of raising the level of financial literacy in our society to Slovakia and the world. Financial education in the world is often conditioned by a high price for study. However, it is the people who get this price they cannot afford pay are those for whom financial education can significantly help to break the cycle poverty, lack and wrong financial decisions in life.
Who we are?
EFC - Financial Education Center Plus is civil association, where we organize various forms of financial education for minorities such as children from socially disadvantaged families, minority communities, people in need, refugees. Financial literacy courses are in Slovak or English. In response to war conflict in Ukraine 🇺🇦 we also prepare tutors with mother tongue Ukrainian.
Where and how?
We provide financial education either in person or in person in our class in Nitra or Exit - we will come to our trainees at the location that suits them best. If there are possibilities on both sides, we also train online via our digital learning platform.
EFC Plus content material
We have developed the EFC Plus financial education content material together with professional educators and parents based on the National Financial Literacy Standard ver.1.2. However, our educational programmes in many ways exceed national standards. Financial literacy education focuses on interactive and engaged learning through more than 90 educational videos and 400 online activities, exercises and games with financial themes.
Areas of financial literacy in which we educate:
- Personal and family management
- Planning, reception and work
- Tax and levy system
- Consumer decision-making and management
- Functions of banks and non-banks, credit and debt
- Saving and investing, simple and compound interest
- Risk management and insurance principles
- Consumer rights, unfair commercial practices,
- Ethical behaviour, corruption and its impact on society
- The impact of the internet, advertising, misleading news and hoaxes
- History and development of money, modern payment methods
Since we teach children already from the age of 8 years as well as the whole families, our courses are tailored in their content, language and graphics so that our students learning had fun. In addition to financial knowledge, they will also acquire a positive attitude towards education and money itself.
Financial contributions and grants
