This weekend, Enfants du Mekong Year 1 students who have just arrived in Phnom Penh are attending a 4-hour workshop on money and opening their first bank accounts. The first group attended the workshop this morning. The purpose of this very first workshop is to equip students with the basics of money management by going through the main five topics (income, expenses, saving, budgeting and debt). Students receive some money every week to pay for their food and a monthly allowance for other expenses. The tools seen during the workshop aim at helping them manage their allowance. By combining training and practise, EdM and a+b=3 hope students can maximise their chances of managing their money.
