The Mortgage & Finance Association of Australia (MFAA) has secured Australian branding rights to Global Money Week.
Global Money Week is an annual international finance awareness celebration which will take place on 14-20 March 2016. The Week was launched in 2012 and is run by global not-for-profit organisation Child & Youth Finance International which is dedicated to enhancing the financial capabilities of children and youth. Global Money Week engages children and teenagers worldwide in learning how money works including: saving, creating livelihoods, gaining employment and entrepreneurship. The up-coming theme is ‘Take Part, Save Smart’.
In 2016, the MFAA aims to build the skills of parents and trusted advisers to educate children on the basics of financial literacy by training brokers to deliver a concise session to a community group. These sessions will be focused on developing conversations that improve both children’s and family understanding about basic financial literacy including debt, credit, affordability and security.
“Our networks of brokers covering all areas of Australia are committed to supporting this program in both metro and regional local communities,” said MFAA CEO Siobhan Hayden.
The program will be supported by an online youth community forum and competition incorporating interactive content such as film-based tools and game-based apps for children and teenagers. There will be educational content and interactive tools for parents also, along with instructional guides to assist them to enhance their child’s development.
The MFAA is happy to partner with other organisations to support the delivery of programs nationally.
“This is a national concern and response, so we are happy to work with other organisations,” Hayden added.
