Project 250 Team
Eeva Campbell, Dima Boulad and Rawad Hajj
Project 250 is a Desmeem project under the theme: Design & Personal Finance and in Collaboration with the Muhanna Foundation.
“I want to save but I don’t know how.” “I want to spend less on useless things.” “I hate asking my parents for money.” Sound familiar? These are quotes from young Beirutis. Project 250 has been out and about exploring what young people think about their financial habits. In participatory workshops and through one-to-one guided activities, we continue to identify what they understand about money.
By working with these young minds, we are not just another power that wants to tell them what to do. We enable them to take charge of their finances for themselves. From wanting to travel to not wanting to ask parents for money so often, young people have many financial goals. We combine the motivation of reaching these goals with an intuitive tool to guide the way.
By translating our in-depth understanding into this tool, finance becomes more than a scary spreadsheet of sprawling numbers. It becomes something that young people can relate to. By making goals and spend- ing patterns visible, personal finance becomes rewarding and fun. “I want” becomes “I can, and I am.”
