Accordingly, for the 1st time in Sri Lanka, DFCC Junior accountholders now receive e-gift vouchers and engaging robotics and coding learning kits for kids. DFCC Junior E-Vouchers cover 110 merchants Islandwide, encouraging kids, parents, and guardians to save while enjoying exciting rewards which are fun and educational.
DFCC Bank has tied up with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education providers in line with its commitment to innovation through learning and introduced a Value Credit Scheme for DFCC Junior accountholders. This makes saving even more rewarding while helping kids achieve their academic goals. This move also aligns with DFCC’s Sustainability Strategy, which advocates for a skilled, financially literate populace to foster sustainable economic growth over the long term.
Discussing the importance of savings, Aasiri Iddamalgoda, Senior Vice President of Retail Banking and SME at DFCC Bank explained, ” As a financial institution, we recognise the importance of instilling a culture of savings among parents, guardians, and children from a young age, as it constitutes a fundamental building block for a prosperous future. Through our enhanced DFCC Junior Accounts and their exciting benefits, we aim to empower parents and guardians to pave the way for their children’s financial and academic success. Our reward schemes reflect our dedication to fostering the ambitions of the next generation, engaging them in a fun and educational way, encouraging them to explore and develop their talents.”
DFCC Bank’s dedication to young savers is evident through its comprehensive Junior Rewards Scheme. This scheme includes the Grade 5 Scholarship Reward, the GCE O/L Examination Reward, and the 18th Birthday Reward.
