Financial Literacy Training by SHIKSHA Initiative November, 2023

Financial literacy is a key empowerment tool, especially for women, as it goes beyond traditional literacy by equipping individuals with the knowledge and skills needed to make informed financial decisions. SHIKSHA Initiative recognizes and addresses this critical need through its SHIKSHA Plus Adult Literacy program. This program plays a pivotal role in advocating the importance of financial literacy, emphasizing that being financially literate is just as crucial as being literate.
In rural communities, women often face unique challenges when it comes to financial matters. Limited access to formal financial institutions, lack of awareness about available financial tools, and societal norms can contribute to financial disempowerment. SHIKSHA Plus Adult Literacy Program steps in to bridge this gap, aiming to empower rural women with the necessary knowledge and skills to navigate the complexities of personal finance.
The recently conducted training on financial literacy by SHIKSHA Initiative, held from November 27th to 28th, involved nine dedicated volunteers. The sessions focused on imparting practical skills that go beyond theoretical knowledge. Financial literacy encompasses making informed choices about savings, insurance, budgeting, and understanding and guarding against potential financial fraud. The aim is to empower rural women with literacy and the ability to make sound financial decisions that contribute to their overall well-being.
SHIKSHA Initiative recognizes that financial literacy is a pathway to economic independence and improved quality of life for rural women. Through the SHIKSHA Plus program, the organization is committed to instilling confidence and competence in financial matters, enabling women to contribute actively to their households and communities.
