Hello! My name is Arinola Araba. I am the founder of bMoneywize, a fun-loving inventor, entrepreneur, and mum to three teenagers who enjoys working with young people. My previous education and experiences have involved the Health, Project Management, IT and Politics disciplines.
The idea to start this project hit me when my teenage daughter would bring her friends home to cook them ‘Jollof rice’ (an African delicacy) every day when she came home from school, but I was out of work…! I had to do something or two about teaching kids the VALUE of MONEY! We (Seun and our team) brought her and her friends together to form a project group to develop a game concept that would answer the question above.
Since then, I have created a board game, app, and online course to help children (and their parents!) understand how to manage their money. What has followed the birth of the bMoneywize game has been a string of award nominations, BBC, ITV News, BEN TV interviews, and there’s more to come…
bMoneywize is seeking your support to reach out to children in our community via financial inclusion workshops at their schools, where we can help them learn essential life skills in a fun way!
