City Pay it Forward
A group of business professionals and parents decided to roll up their sleeves and make an impact in their community by teaching students the basics in financial literacy
We believe anything is possible!
Children establish attitude towards money by the age of seven years old and behaviours towards money by fourteen …
… which means we need to undertake financial literacy education from an early age
