These videos will reach around 700,000 teachers and non-teaching personnel and 24 million students in more than 47,000 public schools nationwide. This partnership showcases how the public and private sectors can work together to enhance the financial literacy levels of Filipinos, beginning with the youth who go through the formal education system.
