Also, the first runner up, Mbalewe Nneoma of Babcock High School won a school bag with educational kits as well as winning a 3 in 1 printer for her school, while the second runner up, Master Quadri Uthman won a school bag and other educational items while his school got a white board for her school.
Speaking at the prize giving, the Regional Manager, Lagos, Mabel George, said that PAL Pensions had its financial literacy initiative launched in response to the need to provide Nigerian students the much needed financial education, which was lacking in their school curriculum.
According to her, the desire to arrest a situation where Nigerian youths do not get to know how to manage money, save, or even develop entrepreneurship skills and right financial judgment up until they start working spurred PAL Pensions’ choice of CSR in that direction.
