ConcordBank supported the educational initiative of the NBU and joined the project "Financial Defense. Profession of a Banker", which runs from May 22 to June 2, 2023.
The project aims to explain the basics of financial literacy to school and preschool children and introduce them to the profession of a banker.
As part of the project, the bank held its third excursion for children.
This time, ConcordBank was visited by displaced children from Kramatorsk, Sievierodonetsk and Bakhmut, who are taken care of by the CF "Dobro TUT".
It is symbolic that on the Day of the Lucky Coin, which is celebrated on May 23, the excursion to the bank was combined with an interesting ritual of making lucky coins. A real blacksmith, real "magic" of manufacturing and exclusive coins that children keep as a souvenir of the banking secrets they learned from ConcordBank employees.
Valentyn Miniailo, member of the Supervisory Board of Concord Bank, ambassador of joint educational programs with the NBU, told the children interesting facts about the Ukrainian hryvnia from ancient times. The children also learned the important basics of financial literacy, how to distinguish counterfeit bills in a bank, how a money-counting machine works, and learned all the details of the work of a cash collector. Having visited the cash-in-transit vehicle, the children made sure that the customers' money in ConcordBank is protected under any circumstances.
Spreading financial culture among young people together!
