For nearly two decades, Visa's financial literacy programmes have educated millions of children and adults in more than 30 countries on how to manage their money wisely. These programmes are all designed with one goal in mind: To ensure that as individuals gain access to financial services, they do so with a sound understanding of money management.
Whether it’s a theatre that teaches budgeting to children in Brazil, or a FIFA World Cup™ branded video game about personal finance basics, our free literacy programmes are culturally relevant, innovative and engaging.
Our financial literacy websites, localised around the globe, draw millions of visits each year from parents, teachers, students and consumers looking for free, high-quality personal finance information for the classroom and home.
Visa’s pledge through the Clinton Global Initiative to reach 20 million people worldwide with our financial literacy programme by May 1, 2013 was surpassed one year ahead of schedule. Visa has now reached more than 33 million people.
From 2012 to 2014, Visa also hosted a series of high-level conferences in India, Eastern Europe, Kenya, Middle East, Brazil and China delivered in collaboration with the Financial Times. These forums were dedicated to improving the financial literacy of individuals from the most vulnerable communities around the globe.
