Students at GEMS First Point School attended the KFI GLOBAL financial education program held over two days. This initiative is sponsored by Dubai Islamic Bank and is part of an overall drive for Social Sustainability through a financial literacy program for the younger generation.

Marilyn Pinto, Founder at KFI GLOBAL said: “Financial Literacy is a key driver of social sustainability and this initiative is a prime example. Few things empower individuals more than understanding how money works and how they can use this knowledge to ensure a financially secure future for themselves and their families. The KFI program does just that – gives them the competence and confidence to make smarter financial decisions.”

Patrick Ahern, Head of Business, Enterprise and Economics at GEMS First Point School said: “Our Yr 12 business students just attended the KFI financial education program and they learned so much about make better money decisions. I would highly recommend the KFI program to any school looking to bring them in to educate them in this field and I’d like to especially thank Dubai Islamic Bank for sponsoring this program.”
