Jeroo Billimoria believes that international development starts with fostering children’s social and financial awareness. In this audio interview with Stanford Center for Social Innovation correspondent Sheela Sethuraman, Billimoria talks about how her organization, Aflatoun, provides education on these matters to children ages 6 to 14. She discusses how her organization has grown to reach more than 540,000 young people in 31 countries. She talks about how the organization works with partners, ensures the quality of its curricula around the world, and works to move such curricula into mainstream schools. Billimoria also shares challenges, course corrections, and the organization’s vision for the next five years. Her work adds an important new component to international development work.
