Financial Literacy Orientation (FLO)
What is Project Flo?
Project FLO is an initiative established to help shape the future of Guyana through education. The initiative focuses on developing cognitive skills in financial literacy for Guyanese youth who are making the transition into adulthood. By educating students in financial literacy, Project FLO aims to disrupt generational poverty cycles by introducing the knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors needed for a future of financial stability.
"Learning Money Before Earning Money"
The initiative is dedicated to empowering the next generation of Guyanese leaders through its programs and initiatives.

Project Flo & The One Guyana Initiative
Project FLO is committed to supporting the “One-Guyana” initiative and its goal of reducing inequalities in access to educational opportunities. We believe that every student, regardless of their background or location, deserves the chance to learn and succeed. That’s why our mission is to work towards equitable access to sound education in financial literacy for students across the length and breadth of Guyana. By providing young people with the knowledge and skills they need to make informed financial decisions, we hope to empower them to build a better future for themselves and their families.
