Exciting times for the BLISS girls! We’re launching financial literacy workshops at the Attock schools in the last week of March.

The curriculum has been developed by the Asian Development Bank and Empowerment Thru Creative Integration (ECI), funded by the State Bank of Pakistan, and will be delivered by Bearing Point, a management and technology consultancy. It is part of a nationwide financial literacy program, of which BLISS is among the selected pilot communities.

The curriculum has been translated into Urdu and Punjabi, and will be delivered to the girls in Attock in Urdu. It teaches the basics of budgeting, saving, investment, accessing financial services etc through a fun, illustrated story that follows the lives of Sikku and Tehmina and their families.

The training of trainers is taking place in Lahore this week. We can’t wait to get this show on the road!
