Kids today are experts at all the basic school facts- mitochondria are the powerhouse of the cell, a² + b² = (a + b)² – 2ab, but riddle me this:

When you move into a new flat, you can save money by:

  1. Renting a truck rather than a mover
  2. Asking your friends to help you
  3. Hiring people to pack for you
  4. 1 and 2

Before we get to answers, it’s pretty obvious that the last bit is more crucial on a day-to-day basis. It’s important to raise kids with a sense of financial awareness before they get their first jobs and potentially grow into reckless spenders. This is exactly why…

Visa and Edfundo have launched ‘Financial Football’, an interactive game that will help teach students in the UAE financial habits and skills to promote their financial well-being.

Yup, building financial awareness through football, bang in the FIFA Season! Coincidence? I think not.

(psst, read until the end to find out the right answer to the question above!)
