Planning of event/campaign to advocate for financial inclusion in your university
This is when you will execute what you have planned (event/campaign) in your university to advocate for financial inclusion.
You will plan and organise the Digital Financial Inclusion Challenge 2022, a competition to gather youth ideas on how to overcome challenges in promoting financial inclusion. Here's 2021's finale for reference.
You will recruit a new batch of FIYC members and elect new leaders for the year 2023 during this time.
FIYC2022 is a committee which gathers innovative and purpose-driven youths to work together to address and raise the awareness of financial inclusion within the communities they live in, starting from university campuses.
The main focus will be on the understanding, access and uptake of microtakaful among the disadvantaged communities.
You will advocate to get more people, especially the marginalised to be protected against financial risks as campus ambassadors.
The aim is to establish a sustainable national financial inclusion movement that will continue the work for many years to come.
