The importance of financial education is gaining momentum around the world. Choosing the right training to optimize your knowledge is key in order to achieve maximum benefits.
MONEYSMART, designed by EVENTA, is a new program in the Middle East that promotes financial literacy through an experiential hands-on training 2-day boot camp customized to different types of audiences.
During the 2-day boot camps participants will benefit from 9 different workshops given by top trainers in their respective fields. This new and successful model includes highly interactive small group training to optimize individual attention, and a chance to hear inspirational guest speakers share their own success stories.
The objective is to educate people about financial literacy by helping them:
Adopt a wealth creation mindset
Identify their resources and understand how to manage them
Understand how to leverage financial and non-financial resources to create wealth
We collaborate with top organizations and choose the best trainers in their fields to make sure the MONEYSMART experience provides our participants with the optimal success rates.
The Boot Camps
The boot camps are designed to include both financial knowledge and specific practical techniques to get you on your way to becoming MONEYSMART and achieving financial freedom. They are a combination of information, hands-on activities, group discussions and games that demonstrate the following financial literacy concepts:
Financial responsibility and decision making
Managing financial and non-financial assets
Creating wealth and reaching career objectives
EVENTA launched MONEYSMART pilot project in the summer of 2017 across Lebanon. The pilot project had Byblos Bank as its strategic partner with different institutions as hosting partners.
The pilot MONEYSMART boot camps were aimed at youth between the ages of 20-30 and included over 200 participants from 30 universities in Lebanon, 56% of which were male and 44% female. The boot camps were facilitated by 5 trainers and hosted 7 inspirational guest speakers.

The MONEYSMART Champion program is a volunteer program designed to enable participants of the youth edition to transmit the skills and knowledge acquired to 7-14 years old in their communities through games and activities.
Our team of MONEYSMART Champions received a special training and a MONEYSMART Champions kit. A reward scheme based on the more your reach the more you get gives our champions the opportunity to become part of our team.
