The Central Bank of Solomon Islands (CBSI) is planning to roll out its Financial Inclusion Program to schools in the country.
Confirming this to SIBC News is Governor of Central Bank of Solomon Islands, Denton Rarawa.
He said the idea is to help students learn about financial concepts and help them understand the importance of saving money.
“Another aspect of what we are doing is to try getting financial inclusion into our schools so that our children can learn about financial concepts, financial ideas when they are in school from class one to form three. We are still working on this project and hopefully we will complete it.”
Mr. Rarawa also added CBSI’s Financial Inclusion Program has many aspects.
“Financial inclusion has many aspects to it and one is to conduct public awareness. The idea is to go out and conduct awareness programs to inform the public so that they can know what is happening with our financial system, what products are available and hopefully they can come and join in by starting bank accounts and be part of the financial system.”
