Making A Difference through Children’s Financial Literacy

This week is national Anti-Poverty Week, and we’re proud to be joining other like-minded, socially conscious change makers across the country in an effort to rally support for combating this global issue head-on by making a difference through Children’s Financial Literacy Program with the help of our MAD Day event on Friday 21st October.

MAD (Make A Difference) Day raises support for CUFA’s International Project Fund, and specifically our Children’s Financial Literacy Program which provides the opportunity for children living in poverty to change their lives. Earlier this year volunteers from Teachers Mutual Bank visited Cambodia to see firsthand the impact of our Children’s Financial Literacy program which has reached more than 82,000 children since inception in 2008. Focused on providing financial literacy training to kids in ultra-poor communities in rural locations, this program equips pupils with skills that are critical to breaking the cycle of poverty for good.

This Make A Difference Day, we challenge you to take on the Teachers Mutual Bank for the title of MAD Day Champion.

Register your MAD Day fundraising event with us here and see the delightful faces of our Children’s Financial Literacy program in the inspiring short video below.

Together we can change people’s lives and end poverty for good.

 Tag us in your fundraising festivities to go in the draw to be our CUFA MAD Day Champion 2016 @cufaltd #makeadifference #MADday #antipovertyweek2016 #CUFAempowers #Cufaltd
