An entrepreneur has launched an app with the help of one of our students, in a bid to help youngsters better manage their money.
Dr Arinola Araba teamed up with an IT student, Charlie Madigan, to develop a computer game - bMoneywize.
Arinola said: “I’m thoroughly excited to have been able to get the opportunity to create something that children love. But it wasn’t done by me alone, so I want to thank Barking & Dagenham College and Charlie for making the digital version of bMoneywize a reality.”
bMoneywize is a personal finance toolkit developed into a digital game for young people. It aims to help them gain the knowledge, confidence and skills to keep track of their money. Arinola came up with this idea when she began to think about how she could talk to young people about managing money, but in a fun way.
