‘Money matters matter.’

Standard Chartered Bank and Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) recently joined forces to  conduct financial education sessions to more than eight hundred (800) elementary students from Maypajo Elementary School in Caloocan City. In partnership with Philippine Business for Social Progress and the Department of Education, the event was held in celebration of Global Money Week, a global money awareness celebration which aims to educate children and youth on money management to empower them to make smart financial decisions throughout their lives. For three years now, BSP and Standard Chartered Bank have partnered in educating students on the basic concept of money and practical ways on how to manage their finances wisely. Mai Sangalang, Standard Chartered Bank’s country head of corporate affairs, said, “The bank believes that education provides the foundation for long-term economic growth. Through our global programme on financial education, we seek to uplift the level of financial literacy of our youth and help them understand the importance of financial security and equality.”
