National Financial Literacy Program for Youth (NFLP‐Y), a project of the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP),  and  have partnered to impart free of cost financial literacy education to  Pakistan’s youth through an engaging and interactive game called ‘PomPak – Learn to Earn’.

PomPak  delivers  its lessons  in  English and  Urdu language through  a  story‐based game  format  designed  to help understand and apply principles of  financial literacy. Users  follow  the story of  two  entrepreneurial  families  as  they  tackle  personal,  financial,  and  business  decisions. 

As  the  player  of  this game, the aim is to help the families create a successful business. In just a couple of hours, users  can master  the essentials  of  saving,  budgeting,  borrowing, and banking, among many  other  topics.  The game targets three age‐groups – Children (9‐12), Adolescents’ (13‐17), and Youth (18‐29) and can  be accessed  through a person’s desktop browser or  through a dedicated mobile phone application. 

 The game can be played on any Android or IOS based smart phone. During  such  an  unprecedented  time  amid  COVID‐19,  when  businesses,  schools,  and  other  public  venues are closed around  the country and remote learning has increased significantly,  the youth of  Pakistan may take advantage of their  free time and gain the much needed  financial literacy training  through this game which will help them to understand financial matters.  Anyone  who  completes  the  course  would  be  awarded  with  a  Certificate  of  Financial  Literacy.

This  digital  certificate  is  jointly  issued  by  the  National  Institute  of  Banking  and  Finance  (NIBAF),  a  subsidiary of the SBP and National Financial Literacy Program for Youth (NFLP‐Y).
