The Newfoundland Aboriginal Women’s Network is currently engaged in a project called “Collaborating to Advance the Financial Preparedness of Women- A New Path”.
During the initial stages of this project, through focus groups and survey results, we recognized the need to bring awareness and knowledge towards budgeting and savings. To address these barriers we have developed a fun interactive workshop to get you thinking about budgeting and ways to save. The workshop is called “The Money Wise Game.” The purpose is to allow the opportunity to experience, in a fun relaxed atmosphere, what it is like to live in a particular family situation that is common in our communities and plan a monthly budget with the money you receive to match you scenario.
Over the next five months we will be hosting 9 “Money Wise” workshops in various communities throughout the Bay St. George and Corner Brook area. The workshops will be 4 hours in length and a meal will be provided. Childcare and transportation may be covered for those who qualify. If you would like to take part in this workshop or for more information please contact Leanne Pieroway at (709) 643 – 4563 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you in advance for your interest and support.
