It was only a few Saturdays back when the two-day session of Save! Campaign came to an end. However, when one chapter closes, another one begins anew: Save! Culminating.

Many familiar faces – facilitators and kids alike of Save! Campaign – will be present in this half-day session held at Cervini Field within the Ateneo de Manila University. But, in order to compensate for the anticipated arrival of 120 kids from Kalumpang Elementary School, more MEcOnistas have been invited to volunteer as facilitators.

Those faces are not the only new elements present, as Save! Culminating is also a newly established effort of MEcO, under the Community Development Department. What was once a one-part project, Save! Campaign branches out and offers Save! Culminating – to be launched under the guidance of the Project Heads: Zahra Zanjani and Gayle Carabeo.

The project, as its name suggests, is the culminating activity of Save! Campaign. From the fundamentals of why to save to the basics of knowing how to save and budget, these topics that were touched on in the Save! sessions will be integrated into the culminating event. Save! Culminating will serve as an avenue for the kids to showcase their abilities, and apply what they learned through a morning-long event filled with exciting activities and a variety of engaging activities.

When asked about her inhibitions towards the event, Project Head Zahra Zanjani shares that apart from the tangible errors that could be faced, her major apprehension is whether the kids would enjoy what they have prepared. She hopes for nothing other than the activities to leave a lasting impression on them, and points out that,

Anyone can be smart with money. And [through this event] we want them to be just that.

Come and be a part of the Save! Campaign culmination this Saturday, November 5, 2016, from 8am-12nn!
