Financial Literacy is a powerful tool to achieving and maintaining economic freedom, and it is often not taught in a traditional educational setting. Those without access to this knowledge are susceptible to debt and poverty. With information about developing a household budget, creating an emergency savings account, and purchasing a first home, financial literacy can be the tool that transforms women’s lives.
To increase financial literacy and in alignment with our focus on Advancing the Wellbeing of Women, JLNO has developed a Financial Literacy for Women curriculum which focusses on the five key financial topics of banking, borrowing, budgeting, saving, and investing. All events in this program are free and open to the public.
