From the day you were born money has been playing a very important role in your life. As a matter of fact, even before you were born money was spent preparing for your arrival, then celebrating your birth; buying clothes, gifts, toys, and more importantly providing a home for you. Money pays for your education, your leisure, food and shelter; in fact more or less everything you do requires money in one form or the other. So if money is so important surely you need to know as much about it as early as early as possible. Without financial education your generation will make the same mistakes as the previous one, living on credit, having no savings plan and ending up broke.
In Go 2 the Ant we want to start to break that cycle right now by informing and educating today’s younger generation about:
• the five basics rules of managing money
• the role of financial institutions in the UK today
• understanding credit and debt • surviving the financial challenges of University
• the role of parents in teaching their children about money.
