Realizing the importance of saving money, Nasfund Contributors Savings and Loans Society (ncsl) in partnership with ANZ, rolled out a week-long Financial Literacy Training for nine ncsl officers last month.
Staff attended this training under NCSL’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities to enable the attendees to provide awareness and education both ncsl staff and members on the practice of savings towards having a savings culture.
NCSL Human Resource Manager, Henry Pupu said the training instills a savings culture so individuals can achieve their goals in life and more importantly have funds available in case of emergency and for unforeseen expenses.
“Part of the module involved identifying needs and wants, planning, and being assertive when it comes to finance.” Mr Pupu further remarked.
The training is part of the organization’s a five-year corporate plan to train employees to carry out financial literacy workshop to members and was the first of its kind for the Society.
The training was facilitated by ANZ’s Ms. Kevani Geita to equip the staff with skills and knowledge to carry out awareness externally.
Member Services Officer, Allena Niempery said, the workshop was an extra bonus as it gave her skills on how to run awareness sessions and to impart the skills learnt to help members.
All NCSL staff will also undergo this training to carry out financial education to members, promoting financial literacy and awareness.
