State Bank of Pakistan project – NFLPY (National Financial Literacy Program for Youth) and Rozee.pk – Pakistan’s largest online jobs platform, have partnered to impart free of cost financial education to Pakistan’s youth through an engaging and interactive game called ‘PomPak – Learn to Earn’.
PomPak delivers its lessons in English and Urdu language through a story-based game format designed to help understand and apply principles of financial literacy. Users follow the story of two entrepreneurial families as they tackle personal, financial, and business decisions. As the player of this game, the aim is to help the families create a successful business. In just a couple of hours, users can master the essentials of saving, budgeting, borrowing, and banking, among many other topics. The game targets three age-groups – Children (9-12), Adolescents’ (13-17), and Youth (18-29) and can be accessed through a person’s desktop browser or through a dedicated mobile phone application.
During such an unprecedented time, when businesses, schools, and other public venues are closed around the country and remote learning has increased drastically, NFLP-Y and Rozee.pk want the youth of Pakistan to take advantage of their time in quarantine and gain the much needed financial literacy training through this amazing game which will help them take control of their financial matters.
Anyone who completes the course would be awarded with a Certificate of Financial Literacy, which they can proudly display on their profile. This digital certificate is jointly issued by the National Institute of Banking and Finance (NIBAF), a subsidiary of the State Bank of Pakistan and National Financial Literacy Program for Youth (NFLP-Y).
Founded in 2003, Rozee.pk is Pakistan’s Number 1 jobs website with 65,000 employers and 9.8 million registered professionals from all industries and educational backgrounds. More than 1,000 new jobs are posted each day on Rozee.pk. The dedicated teams at Rozee.pk process more than 40,000 job applications a day, helping more than 1 million professionals successfully land jobs through Rozee.pk so far and counting.
National Financial Literacy Program for Youth (NFLPY) is a project of the State Bank of Pakistan. The primary aim of this project is to impart essential financial education to Pakistani youth and school going children for strengthening their money management skills and understanding of the financial matters. NFLP-Y is expected to serve as a medium to connect youth with financial institutions that offer banking products and services.
