REGISTER TO ATTEND
The world has evolved and for this reason, it is very important to reflect on the state of our personal finances and an opportunity to improve those finances. The day is marked by efforts to help individuals and groups, identify their money weaknesses and turn them into strengths.
According to the most recent statistics from the World Bank, Ghana’s poverty headcount ratio, the percentage of the population living below the national poverty line, has been gradually reducing from 24.2 per cent in 2012 to 22.3 per cent in 2016. With the advent of the COVID-19 virus, this gradual decline is under threat as COVID threatens to undo the efforts of the government, organisations and individuals. The Financial Literacy programme will contribute efforts to prevent an increase in Ghana's poverty headcount ratio by educating the public on ways to manage their financial resources in this COVID-19 era, as well as exploring and capitalising on alternative revenue sources.
The concept is to promote, advocate for, and support financial literacy efforts across the country, especially in second cycle schools and amongst the youth. ABCDE as facilitators, and with the assistance of other organizations, will promote the literacy campaign through workshops, online and print content, and more.
