Posted on May 27, 2017

As part of the 2017 Children’s Day celebrations, Keystone Bank Limited has partnered Junior Achievement Nigeria (JAN) in conjunction with Uber to host 500 pupils in Lagos State.

The event, which held on Thursday 25 May, had participants from Federal Housing Estate Primary School; Victoria Island Primary School; Awoyaya Primary School and Ansar-u-deen Primary School.
All 500 pupils are beneficiaries of Junior Achievement Nigeria’s ‘More Than Money’ scheme, a financial literacy programme which empowers Primary 4, 5 and 6 pupils to cultivate better saving and spending habits and also help in the development of soft skills such as commitment, consistency, prioritizing and contentment.
The event, which transformed the schools’ compound into fun wonderlands for a day, included food, games, activities and gifts from the sponsors.
In his remarks, Keystone Bank’s Acting Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Hafiz Bakare, stated, “We admire the impact that JAN is creating in the lives of these children which will set them up for a successful future, so we are very proud to get the kids out of the classroom and have some fun.”
In her remark, Mrs. Simi Nwogugu, Executive Director, Junior Achievement Nigeria said, “We decided to celebrate Children’s Day this year with some of our elementary school students who are so hardworking and intelligent, but who do not often get a chance to be celebrated in this way.  We thank our sponsors, Keystone Bank and Uber for making this possible.”
Keystone Bank is a technology and service-driven commercial bank offering convenient and reliable solutions to its customers.
