The FinEd Fiji programme is an initiative of the Pacific Financial Inclusion Program (PFIP) that began in 2011 with the expected outcome of a generation of young women and men leaving school with the knowledge, skills and confidence to make responsible financial decisions, make a living in a changing economy and contribute to Fiji’s growth. Since its inception, PFIP has provided technical assistance and implementation support to the Fijian Ministry of Education and Reserve Bank of Fiji (RBF) in rolling out financial education in the school curricula.
Upon learning that our team had been selected to work with RBF and PFIP to plan and produce a series of videos, infographics and some communication materials, we were elated to say the least.
The goal was to capture success stories of the programme that has become a role model of best practice in the region.

Planning, Logistics and Production
Knowledge products (flyers, banners, posters)
It was an intensive process beginning with the planning and logistics when we coordinated with multiple partners with various points of contacts. A challenge we overcame by managing regular communication through our project management app online.
We proceeded to organise interviews of over 80 students and teachers; formulate a 2-week schedule for traveling around Viti Levu and Vanua Levu to do the interviews; work with our video production partners; send daily interview synopses to our writer, RBF and PFIP; create storyboards for all videos; oversee production and editing; develop programme infographics; and design a range of knowledge products (flyers, posters, banners).
To date the videos and materials we have created, designed and produced continue to be widely used by both RBF and PFIP on their websites, articles, and reports.
