In commemoration of the 2019 Global Money Week (GMW) which took place from March 25 to 31, representatives of Nigeria’s premier financial services brand, First Bank of Nigeria Limited, imparted nuggets of financial literacy to over 7000 young people in schools spread across the six geo-political zones of the country.

This is also in line with the mandate of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) that each bank in the country teaches in selected schools across the six geo-political zones.

FirstBank joined over 50,000 global institutions to commemorate the 2019 Global Money Week, which had the theme, “Learn Save Earn”.

Among the schools visited by FirstBank includes Fiwasaye Girls Grammer Sch. Alagbaka, Akure.

According to the official website of Global Money Week (GMW); “Child & Youth Finance International (CYFI) initiative, is an annual financial awareness campaign built to inspire children and young people to learn about money matters, livelihoods and entrepreneurship” which is akin to FirstBank’s commitment over the years to encourage its key stakeholders, customers, to imbibe savings culture whilst having their children also carried along on the essence of savings through its youth focused products, KidsFirsts (0 – 12 years) and MeFirst (13 – 17 years) carefully designed to meet the financial targets of the given demographics.
