About us page.
According to various studies, it has been proven that Canadian women have lower financial literacy scores than men, and are less likely to have confidence in their financial skills. We are told that men are supposed to be the breadwinners of the household and in charge of the money, but this fact is definitely untrue in 2021, where everyone deserves an equal education. From these stats, we can see how important it is to be introduced to financial concepts early, especially for young girls.
What it does
This is why we created Funance. Funance is a fun, interactive learning web-based game designed for young girls to learn all about personal finance. This equips them with the necessary financial literacy skills they need to save early and spend wisely.
How we built it
We built Funance using React.js and bootstrap. First, we added the react-router and made individual pages and routes to those pages. Then, we added a navigation bar component that allows us to have easy access to those webpages. We continued building onto Funance by creating react components that suited our needs, and combining them on the lessons pages. Finally, we worked together on the UI of the website to make it user friendly and aesthetic.

What's next for FUNance
In terms of future steps, we would like to implement additional interactive stages and fun popup modules to teach users about other important financial concepts such as the importance of keeping an emergency fund, student loans, investments, and beyond. Our mission is to promote financial literacy in a future generation of young adults, and FUNance is our fun solution to financial education in a kid-friendly format.
