Fidelity Bank trains children on social etiquette
Fidelity Bank Plc, has said it is collaborating with JSK Etiquette Consortium to teach contemporary manners and social skills to children in Nigeria.
This is even as the bank at the weekend held a successful training pro­gramme for children at its Private Banking office in Ikoyi, Lagos.
According to the bank, this laudable ini­tiative which is part of its mentorship pro­gramme for the younger generation, also seeks to enlighten and equip chil­dren with the right values at an early age.
The bank also noted that children between the ages of nine to 15 years were also trained on oth­er soft skills such as com­munication and collabo­ration to prepare them for future endeavours.
In his welcome ad­dress at the one-day Youth Etiquette Class, the Bank’s Managing Di­rector/Chief Executive Officer, Nnamdi Okonkwo said, “At a time when inappropriate behavior and manners are threat­ening to push our core values as a nation to the background, we need to rekindle hope for tomor­row by teaching children basic etiquette while re­inforcing what parents may have taught them.
Okonkwo stated that it was against this back­ground that Fidelity Pri­vate Banking came up with the mentorship programme as the role of children in national development cannot be over-emphasised.
Mrs Janet Adetu, the training Facilitator, not­ed that the workshop would not only provide children with requisite social skills to manage difficult situations but also boost their self-con­fidence.
“We want to build their self-confidence and make sure that our chil­dren are prepared to take up leadership opportuni­ties in the near future”, she said.
