ANZ’s MoneyMinded Pacific pilot programme to be delivered by Solomon Group
A pilot financial education programme developed especially for learners with low literacy levels was launched today by the ANZ in South Auckland.
The event coincided with MoneyWeek, the Commission for Financial Literacy & Retirement Income’s nationwide financial education awareness campaign and also celebrated the partnership between ANZ and Solomon Group, which will be delivering the programme.
MoneyMinded is a financial education programme that helps teach basic budgeting, savings and money management skills. Developed by ANZ in 2005 in conjunction with community groups and the NSW Department of Education and Training, the programme has already helped more than 160,000 people in Australia, South Pacific and Asia. The programme has been adapted for New Zealand.
