Every human being wants financial independence and a dignified life in prosperity. To achieve these goals, we need a good understanding of how to use money. Everyone must have access to this knowledge.

We provide young and older people with opportunities to increase their financial literacy and we develop tools for those who are in a difficult financial situation to regain their ability to act and thus their personal freedom.

We are pulling together here with Erste Group, which has made financial health and sustainability the guiding principles of its business model.
