FINANCE FOR THE FUTURE
SIEM REAP, CAMBODIA
WHY IS FINANCIAL LITERACY IMPORTANT? WHAT ROLE DOES IT PLAY IN OUR LIVES?
In a village just outside the city of Siem Reap, Cambodia, participants learn how financial literacy is something that is not easily understood by the Cambodian youth, that empowering these youth with financial literacy skills plays an important role in helping them make informed decisions related to money and thereby increasing their chance of breaking out of the poverty cycle.
This course runs in JUNE and NOVEMBER.
In this course students will gain a new perspective of financial literacy - how basic concepts such as savings, banks and loans are not easily grasped by Cambodian youth simply because some of them live day to day from hand to mouth. Students will also receive guidance in delivering powerful and dynamic lessons through incorporation of games, skits and a clear belief in their ability to impact the beneficiaries they are empowering and complete the course with a greater understanding of privilege,
