Financial Literacy - Training the Trainers
Financial Literacy - Training the Trainers
Mon-Wed 16, 17 and 18 December 2013
Phnom Penh

Do the target groups that your organisation helps struggle with debts and financial difficulties? Does your staff find it difficult to help them be less vulnerable? Are you looking for practical and engaging ways to improve your target groups’ situation which are immediately applicable and connected to their daily lives?

Course objective:
Participants understand the importance of managing money and the main tools to better control expenses and debt and to save (budget, tracking, expense categories, goals setting, spending limit…). They identify the challenges of becoming financially literate, especially the behaviour and social parts. They apply these tools to better manage their own money. They can run a participatory training on financial education for their low income clients and analyse what methods would best empower their target groups. They can assess their clients' main financial issues, choose what training sessions would be most relevant to their clients and adapt examples. They understand how to set simple impact indicators to measure the impact of their financial literacy programme. They draft a first training programme that they can use straight away once back to their organisation office.

Participants are enthusiastic about Financial Education and how it can help alleviate poverty; they become long term actors of Financial Education in their own organisation.

Trainer’s profile: Sophie Paine (a+b=3)

Daughter of teachers and grand-daughter of an entrepreneur, Sophie’s vision is a world where financial hardships do not prevent children and adults from getting education and where money is a tool to grow our most precious asset: ourselves. Sophie has worked with immigrants in the US and Hong Kong and in 2005 she set up a+b=3, a social enterprise to improve NGOs’ capacity in financial education through training their trainers and designing programmes - including behaviour about money. Sophie also co-founded Enrich in 2007, an NGO to empower Hong Kong migrant workers to be more in control of their finance and encourage each other and their families. Sophie holds a DECF (Qualified Accountant), a Master degree in business studies (Institut d'Etudes Politiques de Paris), a post-graduate in finance and banking (Paris-Dauphine) and a diploma in Islamic Finance (ETHICA). She has worked in financial management and accounting in US and British corporations and international non-profit organisations for more than 15 years. She has facilitated training workshops in Hong Kong, Cambodia (15 trips in 7 years!), the Philippines, USA, Shanghai, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and online programmes. She loves adding colour to financial training to engage all participants even those who hate numbers! Since 2005, a+b=3’s programmes have reached more than 5,000 people. Our mission is to help people make better decisions with money to have a more harmonious and healthier life.
This workshop will be co-facilitated in Khmer by a VBNK trainer.
