Impact Unpacked – Be Better Education, China

August 9, 2017

NPI China & Be Better Education

Our Impact Unpacked series tells the stories of social ventures around the world and how they are being supported by members of the Global Social Entrepreneurship Network. Be Better Education are supported by NPI China. They aim to provide financial literacy & social skills training to 20 million children in 10 years harnessing the power of ICT.

The social venture and its impact

Be Better Education established 9 years ago as an NGO providing Economic Citizenship education to underprivileged youth, aged 3-25. In 2014, Be Better Education set up a social enterprise to extend their services to kids from middle class families and invested efforts into creating online games and tools to benefit both their beneficiaries and paying customers.

Since 2016, the NGO part of Be Better Education has transformed into an incubator and franchiser for more institutions to focus on financial literacy education through systematically sharing their technology. In the past 9 years, they have already reached 500,000 kids. Over the next 10 years, their target is 20 million youth.

In 2016, NPI also approached Be Better Education as a good candidate for their social impact investment scheme.
