In June, Pru Life UK and Prudence Foundation launched the Cha-Ching Kid$ at Home initiative to provide online and printable materials to parents, helping them teach their children easy-to-learn money management concepts like Earn, Save, Spend and Donate. These resources, including music videos, topics for discussion and engaging activities, can be accessed and downloaded for free on the website, www.cha-ching.com.
“We understand the important role that parents play in shaping their children’s financial future. By making the learning process more fun and inspiring, we aim to help cultivate more financially-responsible behaviors among both parents and children in the Philippines,” says Marc Fancy, Prudence Foundation executive director.
