0 716

Taguig City Rep. Pia Cayetano has urged youth leaders nationwide to promote financial literacy and entrepreneurship among their peers, in addition to involvement in sports.

Cayetano, who is running for senator, told Sangguniang Kabataan leaders in Pampanga in a recent talk that they should go beyond sponsoring sports tournaments in their community, and try to initiate other programs that will promote financial literacy and entrepreneurship among their constituents.

“It’s interesting that we have a common interest, which is sports. But I also realize that it is not enough, because, as they told me, that’s what their sector already expects from them,” she said.

“I want to plant these seeds in the minds of our youth leaders in the hope that they would come up with programs like this, and I would love to have the opportunity to help them also,” added Cayetano, a lawyer and entrepreneur who earned her economics degree from the University of the Philippines.
