Junior Ipon is a financial literacy workbook made especially for kids. It is our response to the problem of dropped out students in the country. It is welcome to be used by all children ages 8-12 years to encourage them to be money-smart and proactive in their financial independence. Instead of the book being a reactionary solution to the problem of dropped out students, it becomes a preventive solution by having students, especially from public elementary schools, who are at risk of dropping out as the target audience. Junior Ipon delivers learning through the third learning strand of the Alternative Learning System’s curriculum which is the sustainable use of resources and productivity. Under this learning strand, the students are taught about the different resources that can be found in their communities, how to become an entrepreneur, the concept of banking, technology, etc. Under this strand as well, children are taught the value of money.
