Prudential Assurance Malaysia Berhad and Pandai Education partnership will give 625,000 Malaysian students access to financial literacy curriculum on Pandai App.
In line with its vision to build financial resilience amongst children in Malaysia, Prudential Assurance Malaysia Berhad (PAMB) has partnered with Pandai Education Sdn Bhd to offer Malaysian primary school children access to the Cha-Ching financial literacy curriculum on the Pandai App and web portals to facilitate their growth in financial literacy.
Cha-Ching is a financial education programme for children created and developed by Prudence Foundation, the community investment arm of Prudential plc, and is managed by PAMB in Malaysia.
The award-winning financial literacy programme aims to educate children on the fundamentals of money management and instil money smart skills.
Pandai is an online learning App that helps school students aged 7 to 17 learn and improve their grades through game-like lessons aligned to Malaysia’s curriculum standards.
The content that it produces is also endorsed by education organisations such as the Education Alliance Finland (EAF) and MIT D-Lab.
This collaboration with Pandai Education will allow over 625,000 Malaysian students on the Pandai platforms free access to 6 Cha-Ching lesson plans on the fundamentals of money management.
Each lesson includes a Cha-Ching music video and activities on earn, save, spend and donate and quizzes for students to test the knowledge they have acquired.
One of our core efforts in Prudential is to equip Malaysian families and children with financial knowledge, confidence and awareness that helps them make informed financial choices in life. Our partnership with Pandai Education gives more students access to a critical life skill that will influence their ability to lead a sustainable lifestyle in future.Eric Wong, Chief Marketing and Partnerships Distribution Officer for PAMB
