Education is for life, not merely earning a living and team Finlit at Enactus Somaiya Social Cell has always strived to contribute to the cause of providing education to the underprivileged and giving India a chance to speak, read and write lines of a fresh, literate and visionary Bharat.
As a part of this, Finlit organised a certificate distribution ceremony for the students of KJ Somaiya Vocational Training Institute (VTI).
The event started at 2:00 PM in presence Prof. Asha Bhatia, the faculty co-ordinator of Enactus SSC, Mr. Mathew, Principal of VTI and Dalvi Sir who was instrumental in helping us throughout the FinLit program at VTI.
This was followed by the certificate distribution ceremony for the meritorious students of VTI by Prof.Asha Bhatia. She later thanked the Principal and teachers of VTI for their continuous support and encouragement to the FinLit members that helped them complete the 3 month course at VTI successfully.
The principal of VTI, Mr. Mathew, also appreciated the efforts put in by the volunteers and looked forward to the upcoming FinLit sessions and requested to increase the number of batches for VTI since more students are now interested to be a part of this program.
All FinLit Programs are supported by IIFL who recently felicitated Project FinLit with a grant of Rs. 30000 and also provided Financial Literacy Material to all 442 students associated with the Project.
Prof. Asha Bhatia extended gratitude towards IIFL for their continuing support for Project FinLit.
It was a proud moment for all the FinLit members to see their students doing so well in the exams conducted by them and the resultant increase in financial awareness and English speaking skills.
Project FinLit will continue to contribute to the cause of spreading financial awareness and English proficiency amongst the students and contribute in a small way to the Millennium Development Goal of Literacy.
Project FinLit will now start with the next batch of students shortly hoping to see more financially aware students with better English proficiency passing out this year as well.
