The Annual Children’s Finance Fair celebrates the Nigerian child and seeks to empower our youth by equipping them with critical life skills in money management. “Sadly financial education is not in the school curriculum; the responsibility thus falls on parents, teachers, and guardians to be deliberate about equipping their children with this knowledge from their earliest years,” says Nimi Akinkugbe CEO Bestman Games and Founder, Money Matters with Nimi.
The Children’s Finance Fair will also address issues parents face in planning for their children’s education, one of the most important legacies a parent can bequeath a child. Children will be treated to an array of quizzes, puzzles, and games. An exciting mini Monopoly Tournament will also take place with attractive prizes to be won.
Guests will enjoy a series of informative workshops with presentations by a lineup of seasoned speakers who share their wealth of knowledge and experience. Speakers include Yetty Williams, Founder Lagos Mums, and Nimi Akinkugbe, CEO Bestman Games. There will be special learning sessions by Junior Achievement Nigeria, Reyclepoints, Brainhouse Nigeria. Topics include identifying your children’s talent, teaching children and minors about money, planning for a child’s education.
