Moniepoint has provided an opportunity for kids in low-income and underserved communities in Lagos to receive financial literacy in a fun, relaxed environment to commemorate this year’s Children’s Day celebration. This is in recognition of the transformative power of education and children as the nation’s future

At a recent event held in Lagos, students were provided with school bags, books, educational tablets and learning accessories to power academic aspirations, as volunteers from the fintech startup took them through interactive and engaging sessions around budgeting, savings and spending, earning money, investing, personal financial management to instil a positive culture of financial literacy. 

Children’s Day prioritizes children’s rights and participation in the wider world. Financial literacy is an essential life skill considering that financial decisions cut across every aspect of their lives, and a solid foundation can transform them and the nation at large. 

Speaking about Moniepoint’s observance of Children’s Day, Aderayo Adesokan, Manager, Brand and Communications, Moniepoint Inc said: “We are here at LISA to celebrate Children’s Day with the kids. For us at Moniepoint, we are firm believers in powering the dreams of not just businesses or individuals but those associated with them, especially a vulnerable segment like the children. We believe that we can catalyze their dreams while helping them understand that as a brand we exist to ensure a society where everyone experiences financial happiness and we’ll be there for them. 

“We are excited that this platform has allowed us to introduce these kids to critical life-changing skills around financial inclusion and literacy, and help them better under the concept of money. We expect that armed with the information and skills that they have received, they in turn are well positioned and better able to educate their friends and family such that Nigeria’s socio-economic development is safeguarded even as all stakeholders continue to work towards entrenching UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.”
