More than 50 employees of the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts were recent beneficiaries of the JN Foundation's Financial Empowerment Programme.

An interactive session, participants were exposed to smart and practical money management lessons to promote financial stability and wellness. Launched in 2015, The Financial Empowerment Programme targets employees across the Jamaica National Group, as well as students, organisations and sundry groups across the island, to promote financially literacy among Jamaicans.

Backed by JN Bank, the programme was established based on the theory that saving and investment play a pivotal role in empowering individuals as well as for the enhancement of the country's economy.
