Nearly half of Australian parents say they cannot afford to put money into children's bank accounts, many not realising that just $10 a week can provide more than $12,000 to kickstart their child's adult life.
The MFAA is running a financial literacy initiative which aims to help school children understand more about money. By delivering a short presentation at your local school or community group, as a member, you can engage directly and share your knowledge with teachers, parents and children. Global Money Week takes place from 27 March – 2 April, however presentations are not limited strictly to this timeframe. Find out more about Global Money Week here.
