Educating Our Financial Freedom Defenders (Financial Readiness Initiatives)

When we conducted the F.I.T. (Financial Intelligence Training) for our Philippine Air Force soldiers, we had in mind the importance of championing the financial literacy cause to the key persons of this organization. We believe that educating our troops on a one-day sit-class is not enough. The effort and the project should be continuous.

Our fellow financial literacy advocate and Air Force rescue helicopter pilot, Maj. Badong Dee, thought of presenting this project to the Board of Directors of the Philippine Air Force’ Airmen Club.

On May 8, 2014, it’s the turn of Fitz Gerard Villafuerte (Ready To Be Rich) and Joey Tayaban (Truly Rich Club) to convince the PAF Airmen’s Club Board of Directors.  The Airmen’s Club is the umbrella organization of all Enlisted Personnel. The mission is for the club to initiate and ask for the need of financial literacy for the Philippine Air Force troops. The proposed program is dubbed as Financial Readiness Initiatives.


Successful 1st F.I.T. (Financial Intelligence Training) at Clark Air Base

A handful of Air Force soldiers and pilots based in Clark Air Base were able to receive new knowledge from our Angat Pilipinas Coalition for Financial Literacy team on how to achieve financial freedom.

Here are some of the photos taken at the fun-filled, learning event.
