Sea turtles live long lives so you can look forward to many financial literacy lessons with Vuli the Vonu. In fact turtles can live over 100 years – we would like financial literacy to survive long enough for generations in Fiji to benefit.|
Why the Turtle?
Fiji is home to five of the seven species of sea turtles found in the world. The turtles have a strong cultural link with Fijian myths, legends, songs and dance.
Vuli, the green back turtle has been selected in light of the Green Ribbon campaign launched earlier at the Hibiscus Festival 2010.
In times of trouble, Vuli the Vonu, like her fellow turtles, is always quick to respond appropriately and continue on her journey. Vuli the Vonu, is a smart, strong and steady creature.
The” vonu” or turtle is an amphibious creature that can live on land and water and resilient to adverse conditions- qualities that we need people to develop to manage their finances and whatever time they are in their life.
They have a hard shell and maintain focus and known to persevere through all types of weather in their migratory travels.
Being financially educated will help you weather the storms of life.
