The bank’s staff and girls engaged into one-on-one mentorship talks with girls opening up and discussing freely on their life challenges and experiences.Additional lessons covered included financial topics: savings, budgeting and banking amongst others. Participating girls were handed sanitary pads, bar soaps and under wears courtesy of Huru international.
