More than the end of a course, Qualitas of Life Foundation celebrates the beginning of the path to economic stability of the Hispanic families that completed “Take the course of your life”, a financial educational program taught by Qualitas of Life Foundation in association with Mixteca, in Brooklyn.
Having learned about savings, fraud, financial abuse, banking system, budget, credit, family finance, and taxes, the 23 participants in the course, who graduated on Tuesday, February 18, now have the tools to set goals and objectives. They also feel more confident about economic issues, knowing that they are prepared to make good decisions.
Take the course of your life improves the financial future of families, teaching them how to better manage their finances. The course is divided into eight to ten sessions, seeking to analyze the benefits and risks of financial services, using different tools on a daily basis.
Words of pride and enthusiasm to congratulate and motivate
As in any graduation, words of gratitude and recognition abounded. Ivanna Estrada, secretary of the Board of Directors at Qualitas of Life Foundation addressed everyone but specially congratulated and thanked the graduates for their perseverance and for the initiative to take the course.
Likewise, Miriam Rebling, executive director of Qualitas of Life Foundation expressed the satisfaction of having “the opportunity to add a grain of sand” through the foundation, since the courses taught guide participants on how to “obtain the best from the money they get for their families out of so much work”.
Rodrigo Camarena, director of the Mixteca Board of Directors, ratified in a short but meaningful speech his organization’s commitment to empower the community of Mexican and Latin American immigrants living in the New York area, offering them services that influence a better quality of life.
