Youth leaders across Fiji will benefit from a new partner­ship between ANZ and Ola Fou to deliver MoneyMinded and Business Basics, ANZ’s flagship fi­nancial literacy programmes, across Fiji.

Ola Fou, which means new life, empowers young Pacific leaders to work for positive change in their communities.

ANZ Fiji Country Head, Saud Mi­nam, said: “As part of our initial three-year partnership, ANZ will provide Ola Fou with training and accreditation to deliver both Money­Minded and Business Basics.

“These programs have been suc­cessful in improving financial lit­eracy and will add value to the great work Ola Fou is already doing in communities here in Fiji.”

Around 12,000 people in Fiji have already taken part in MoneyMind­ed, made up of 78 per cent female participants and 22 per cent male participants.

An independent report, prepared by the University of the South Pacif­ic, reveals that most MoneyMinded participants have acquired useful and relevant financial knowledge and skills for the daily management of money; more positive attitudes and behaviours towards managing money; and new skills including set­ting financial goals, budgeting, sav­ing and investing.

Ola Fou Fiji Chairman, Geoffrey Nainoca, said: “We are pleased to partner with ANZ to deliver Mon­eyMinded in the villages and settle­ments we support across Fiji.

He said: “Our footprint extends to Tonga, Vanuatu, Solomon Islands, Kiribati and PNG, so there is oppor­tunity to grow our partnership in the future.”
