Bank Volunteers to help Underprivileged Groups to Build up Positive Financial Management Concepts [print]

The Hong Kong Association of Banks (HKAB) and the Hong Kong Council of Social Service (HKCSS) have jointly launched a Community Education Programme for low-income and single-parent families, to educate the participants the importance of sound financial management and the key concepts of savings and credit.

At the workshop, volunteers from HKAB member banks shared their professional knowledge through case studies, group discussion and interactive games. Volunteers also stressed the importance of proper financial management, i.e. keeping a habit of savings and avoiding over-spending, and walked through the different ways of savings and lending, as well as the pros and cons.

     

With the guidance from volunteers at the workshop, participants acquired concepts of how to better manage their finances once they encounter financial difficulties.        

Particiants were encouraged to share with one another their usual practices in financial management.
