CARD promotes financial literacy

15 April 2016

CARD reaches out Mei Foo migrants: About 20 migrant women attended the two-part financial training outreach conducted by CARD OFW HK at Mei Foo park on Mar. 27 and Apr 3. Conducting the training were Marites Mapa and Gigi Blanco, who gained their knowledge from the CARD’s “Train the Trainor” program. The goal is to spread the knowledge that the trainees  received to other migrants who cannot afford to go to Central for the financial literacy training. More outreach training sessions are being planned for various locations in Hong Kong. Those who want to attend the outreach sessions may contact Tess Mapa at 54238196 / 95296392. For more information or like the Facebook page of page CARD OFW Hong Kong. – Marites Palma


Skills training with finlit: A total of 72 migrant workers were the lucky beneficiaries of a combined skills and financial literary training administered by CARD OFW Hong Kong Foundation at Bayanihan Center on Apr 3. Ching Baltazar of Balikatan sa Kaunlaran spearheaded the skills training, along with two of her officers. They taught participants the process of making tocino, a popular Filipino breakfast staple made of pork cured in a mixture of spices. In the second part of the program, the participants were taught how to budget their income and to learn how to distinguish between “needs” and “wants” before spending money. – Marites Palma
