Benefits for Οrganization

Over-indebtedness of households, reducing the gender gap through specific financial actions, health insurance literacy, adolescent illiteracy, national strategies for financial education as well as the necessary educational reforms at all levels of education, starting from primary school. issues that are now of strategic concern to INTERAMERICAN. Through the collaboration with Tipping Point, we had the opportunity to reach out to high school students and talk to them about these issues with the ultimate goal of gaining basic financial knowledge, adopting sound consumer standards and being informed about the opportunities presented in modern insurance industry.

Immediate measurement results on the benefits of the body do not exist due to the fact that it is an action of informing and raising awareness of adolescents.
