CFLE Africa and Sage Financial Solutions are engaging 20 volunteers who are passionate about community service with “Community Service Financial Fitness Advocate Certification (CS-FFA Coaching Foundations).
This will enable them to reach out to citizens in communities, especially those in rural areas, with financial literacy materials. As advocates with coaching foundations, they would be equipped with the knowledge and skillset to aid others to become financially literate.
There will be a six-session virtual training from the 5th to 20th June 2021 in which participants will be engaged with assignments and projects to help them put to practise what they learn.
Explaining the reason behind the move, Executive Director of CFLE Africa, Peter Kwadwo Asare Nyarko said that, ‘Advocating for financial awareness and financial literacy in our communities is critical to achieving a Ghana and Africa in which all people are financially aware and financially literate.
“I have always been a volunteer and an advocate for community service. For the past 6 years, I have engaged various communities on matters of financial awareness and financial literacy. We believe that a community of financially literate people is essential for surviving the financial crisis and ensuring steady economic growth,’ he added.
In a LinkedIn post, Executive Director of Sage Financial Solutions -USA, Saundra Davis expressed her enthusiasm saying, “We are ecstatic about growth of the Financial Fitness Coach (FFC) program and our global reach. Bringing our experience and education to localized efforts ensures that we are promoting competent and ethical services to increase financial inclusion and provide professional opportunities.
The communities we work with know what is needed and have the power to affect the change necessary for people to thrive. We are a proud partner in CFLE Africa’s efforts to change the financial education and future for all Africans.”
