Case Study

Small Children, Small Saving Big Contribution

Savings contribute to success in later part of life. This philosophy is hardly understood in the lower social strata as they bank upon too meager income hard for sustenance. The Aflatun programme has introduced the concept in the school and children seem to have been largely benefited out of the endeavor. Prabhati Mallick is a personified example of small saving & its benefits



In Rushibandha village of Boudh district, Prabhati Mallick, a 10 years student contributed financially to the recovery of her ill brother. Being a member of the poor family she had no idea of micro savings. Most part of the pocket money children gotfrom their parents were spend for unproductive purposes, such as buying Gutkha, bidi etc, which is harmful in nature. With the objective of promoting savings among children YCDA started implementing the Aflatun programme in the year 2009 in the schools. Prabhati actively participated in the programmes & learned the importance of small saving. After few days she could able to save Rs 101/- which came in handy in meeting the medicine cost of the ailing brother. Prabhati with continuous support increased her saving and now she is happy that she could manage to purchase a dress for going to School. Prabhati now is a role model to others in the village & children are learning to save for Future .
