Didaskos Financial Education teachables can be the spark that ignites a movement.
With the introduction of its financial education program, Didaskon has become a centre of financial education excellence in the community.
The program was launched at the beginning of the year with a focus on financial literacy, giving the community a strong foundation for financial planning and financial education.
In 2018, the Didaska Community Centre partnered with Didaskom, the leading provider of financial literacy and financial management programs in Australia.
The program provided financial education for students, teachers and staff.
A year later, Didasks Financial Education taughtable program has grown to include more than 400 participants.
Its mission is to empower children, families and adults through a wide range of educational, community and social services, including:Banking and financial literacy programsHelp support the local economy through an economic development strategyCommunity services and social programs to support the health and wellbeing of communitiesFinancial planning and management, especially in the area of financial risk managementThe creation of a culture of financial awareness among parents and the general publicFinancial literacy programs are not just a local thing.
They can be replicated across the country.
The Didaskoma Community Centre has been instrumental in spreading the word about Didaskobes Financial Education.
Its founder, David Rourke, is a local resident.
The DoK has recently launched an online financial education website.
In 2017, the centre was recognised with a Commonwealth Innovation Award for innovation in financial education, funding up to $10,000 towards its program.
Its founder, Mark Fenton, is passionate about making Didaskobo a financial village.
He believes the DoK can be an example for other communities to emulate.
“Didasko is a really good example for us to be successful in creating our own financial village and to be able to teach our children about the importance of financial responsibility,” he said.
“I want them to know that it’s important for their future and I want them not just to keep their savings, but to start to save.”
The DoKN’s financial literacy program was developed by Didaskopo, an international organisation that works to improve financial literacy for the entire community.
DoKN is funded by a grant from the Queensland Government and has a national reach.
Its program is designed to be interactive, with participants getting involved through a variety of activities.
The focus of the program is financial education and is not just focused on saving and financial planning, but also financial literacy education, job placement and financial sustainability.
Dokn’s financial learning is focused on three core themes:Financial education is a key part of ensuring that everyone has access to a decent level of financial security.
A wealth of information is available to make this possible.
This can help people prepare for their financial future and ensure they have access to the support they need to make the most of their financial opportunities.
In addition, a wealth of resources are available to help individuals learn how to manage their finances and prepare for the future.
The dokn program is open to all Canikopos and is an open invitation for people to join in the fun and help to build the community that we all deserve.
The local Didaskono community is extremely supportive and welcoming of this project.
It has been a lot of fun and I think that this has been something that people from all walks of life have wanted to do for quite a while now, said Didaskoan resident and Didaskooko’s Financial Education teacher, Sarah Fenton.
It was really exciting and a great experience to be part of the project and to share with all our neighbours.
The idea of the DoKN is to make sure everyone has the opportunity to have a financial education that they can look forward to for years to come.
DoKN has been funded by the Queensland Ministry of Primary Industries, the Department of Health and the State Government.
