Title: Promoting Financial and Economic Education

Location: Lebanon
Donor: Islamic Development Bank
Budget: $150,000

By training teachers in economics and finance and by creating a multimedia toolkit, using the EDUTAINMENT methodology for financial education in classroom instruction, the Basil Fuleihan Institute will contribute to improving economics and civic education teaching methods in Lebanese public schools.

This will increase Lebanese students’ understanding of public finance and economics, enabling them to better understand the challenges of economic growth and development. This project builds on the results and findings of a 2009 pilot program which enrolled 210 teachers.
