SMILES ALL AROUND

Congratulations to the first graduates of the online Financial Education course of Penso a Te! Although the ceremony for the first 12 Filipino women that completed the course in February 2021 was held virtually, the excitement was no less contagious.

On June 19, 2021, a second group of 9 Filipino women graduated after successfully finishing the online course between March and June. Finally, with the extraordinary participation of the first graduates, it was possible to celebrate all participants. Respecting Covid anti-contagion security protocols and equipped with green pass, our graduates shared smiles, applause, songs and dances. As a gift, they received a coin-counting piggy bank with a digital display as a symbol of the steps required to finance their first savings projects.

Two groups of women, who have completed the first financial literacy course meet experts in personal finance on Facebook

Meeting the experts is one of the conclusive steps of the micro-learning course in Financial Literacy organized by Penso a Te APS.

The pioneering groups, the Pacesetters from Bologna and the Lighthouse from Genoa, will meet Italian and Filipino experts in personal finance.

New members of the association will meet and discuss virtually on Facebook about some of the most complex topics dealt during the Penso a Te APS micro-learning course, such as investments, insurance policies and mortgages for property ownership in Italy.

We are looking forward to this exchange on personal finance issues that matter to all women, especially the large community of Filipinas working relentlessly as domestic workers in Italian families and offering their essential caring services with children and the elderly.
