Qnet, a global lifestyle and wellness direct-selling company, has trained over 750 youths with essential financial knowledge and skills, as part of its efforts to help the youths in the country.
A statement by the company said QNET, in partnership with its Nigerian franchisee, Transblue, had successfully concluded the second phase of its signature financial literacy programme, FinGreen, in Lagos state.
“FinGreen Phase 2 has equipped over 750 Nigerian youths with essential financial knowledge and skills, surpassing the achievements of its pilot phase and further underscoring QNET’s commitment to economic empowerment and sustainable development in Nigeria,” it said.
Lauding the initiative, the Regional General Manager of QNET’s Sub-Saharan Africa region, Biram Fall, said the workshops and train-the-trainer approach had empowered 25 FinGreen ambassadors to educate over 750 youths in crucial financial principles through the peer-to-peer module.
He said, “This initiative not only imparts practical insights into budgeting, savings, investment, and entrepreneurship but also cultivates informed decision-making.
“We firmly believe in promoting entrepreneurship and enhancing financial inclusion among youths to fuel economic growth and development, and the success of FinGreen Phase 2 stands as a testament to this commitment. Our heartfelt encouragement goes to the beneficiaries to become knowledge beacons, sharing their learnings within their communities.
“The training was successfully executed with the support of the programme’s Content and Training partner, Financial Literacy For All, who developed all the training materials and conducted the Training of Trainers workshop for the 25 alumni, as well as the implementation partner, Consumer Advocacy and Empowerment Foundation, who recruited, assessed, and tracked the participants’ performance to monitor their learning outcomes and gauge their development in various areas.”
The Managing Director, Transblue Nigeria Limited, Akeem Ajisafe, said through FinGreen, the mission was to instill a comprehensive understanding of how financial literacy profoundly impacts the lives of those who have undergone our training, empowering them to, in turn, educate others.
