Finance basics - A primer

Venkat from the Mumbai team conducted a session about basics of Finance to the kids at Borivali. The report, in his own words:

"As I suspected, the story telling helped in holding the children’s attention. They were a bit confused in the powerpoint slides where I talked numbers. Hence, I have made some changes to the flow of those slides. I had also carried cheque leaves and atm card to show to the kids. This helped.

I was pleasantly surprised to see that the children have a good ability in assimilating the intricacies of English grammar taught by our volunteer Jamuna. I was myself clue-less in grammar at their age J

For my next session, am thinking of putting together something on importance of hygiene
