JA Philippines and FWD Life Insurance’s Dreams Ignited: JA SparktheDream’s Revolutionary Approach to Financial Literacy

Bronze Stevie® Award Winner at the 2024 Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards – Recognized for Innovative Achievement in Corporate Social Responsibility

MANILA, PHILIPPINES, May 10, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — Junior Achievement of the Philippines (JA Philippines) and FWD Life Insurance’s financial literacy program, JA SparktheDream, has been honored with a Bronze Stevie® Award for Innovative Achievement in Corporate Social Responsibility at the 11th Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards.

This accolade underscores the program’s holistic and revolutionary approach to financial literacy, empowering Filipino youth toward financial well-being while nurturing socially responsible individuals.

“This award strongly showcases the transformative power of financial literacy education and the positive impact it has on young Filipinos. By giving them the resources to manage their finances responsibly, we empower them to build a financially-wise future for themselves, their families, and our communities,” said JA Philippines Executive Director, Krishna Alejandrino.

“This recognition reaffirms our commitment to nation-building through innovative initiatives like JA SparktheDream. Together with JA Philippines, we created this program to address the critical need for financial literacy among Filipino youth. We believe that by equipping them with financial knowledge, we’re not just shaping their individual futures but also fostering sustainable development of our society,” said FWD Life Insurance President and CEO, Jumbing De Rosas.

Launched in 2023, the JA SparktheDream program integrates financial, social, and life skills education, empowering youth to become their own agents of change. Students are equipped with essential skills and knowledge through financial management lessons led by JA and FWD volunteers, an interactive online learning platform, and community engagement activities – fusing traditional and experiential learning to unlock their full potential and envision a future filled with possibilities.

In less than a year, the program has successfully reached out to 5,000 primary school students, a foundational step toward its broader Asia-Pacific goal of supporting 25,000 students with financial literacy by 2024. Additionally, JA It’s My Dream, an innovative early entrepreneurship program under JA SparktheDream, has supported over 120 out-of-school youth (OSY) with financial and entrepreneurial skills. The OSY participants are also poised to gain firsthand business experience in the upcoming JA Dreamers Pop-Up bazaar after pitching their product ideas and receiving funds from various local companies.

Through JA SparktheDream, JA Philippines and FWD Life Insurance strive to create a progressive future where financial literacy is accessible to all, and young minds are equipped to address societal challenges.
