SPP Financial Literacy Awareness Program – 14 July 2012
About the Programme
The programme aims to inculcate financial literacy skills to Singaporeans so that they can be savvier in making important life decisions from a financial perspective.
Our volunteers have been providing financial counseling at Potong Pasir for about a year. From our experience, many cases of financial stress could have been easily avoided, if only they had not made some important financial decisions that were wrong.
The training will be conducted in English and Chinese.
