ACCA’s reach out to 106 schools offering free Financial Literacy programme.
Anurag Tripathi, Secretary, Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) lauds ACCA for this initiative.
The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) has recently launched the Financial Literacy Programme, which was unveiled through its webinar by Ms. Helen Brand, Chief executive, ACCA and Mr. Anurag Tripathi, Secretary, Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). Through the webinar ACCA members shared their experience and journey of creating this programme where the ACCA India member community came together, to bring this positive change. The digital launch of the Financial Literacy programme also included a participation of 700+ principals from CBSE schools all over India. This initiative is a robust two-year programme for early engagement with children in grade 6 and 7 on different aspects of managing their finances.
The programme takes children through the journey of evolution of money, banking, growing your money (investments) and protecting your money (insurance) as well as career options in finance.
This programme is a testament to how the ACCA community has taken yet another step to contributing to the society at large, with their expertise and experience in the domain of finance and accounting, by educating children on this critical life skill, which will help lay a strong foundation to set them for a successful and productive life.
