Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 09, 2011
The National Financial Educators Council (NFEC) partnered with INPRO to improve the financial capability of people living in Vietnam. INPRO licensed the NFECs’ financial education material to maximize the impact of the material being delivered and to cut down the financial literacy curriculum development time.
The financial literacy coursework will be translated to Vietnamese, and adjustments will be made to best align with their customs and culture. The goal of the initial phase of the financial education program is to produce positive short- and long-term results in the financial capability of the participants. A secondary, focus is to raise awareness about the importance of providing people a practical financial education.
The NFEC provided INPRO comprehensive financial literacy resources, which include: financial literacy curriculum, testing, outreach material, multi-media learning centers and financial educator training to ensure the instructors can effectively teach financial literacy. The majority of concepts within the financial education coursework are applicable in Vietnam; however, some minor changes have been made to accommodate differences in the credit and banking systems.
Through partnerships and outreach efforts, the National Financial Educators Council has expanded into several regions in Africa, Europe, Brasil and other South American countries. “People from around the globe share common characteristics. Unfortunately, one of those characteristics is that they were never taught about money. The NFEC has made a global commitment to provide engaging financial education training, programs and resources to organizations that seek to help their community improve the financial capability of its citizens,” states Vince Shorb, CMO of the NFEC.
INPRO, a leading world-standard professional training company in Vietnam, offers a variety of training program for individuals, entrepreneurs, business managers and enterprises of IndochinaPro Corporation.
The National Financial Educators Council, a global provider of financial literacy services and resources, is on a mission to improve the financial capability of those reached and raise awareness for the financial literacy movement. The NFEC has served individuals and organizations from over forty countries and continues its international outreach in order to share the best practices in financial education with other communities.
