Last week, we were informed that there would be a few new faces in the office – for a week only. Intrigued and not entirely knowing what to expect, it came as a shock when we found out that the new additions were somewhat younger than normal!
Meet Nabeela Sofola and Funmilola Okeowo – 10 and 9 years old respectively. They were sent from Discovery House School in Lekki, as part of an initiative called FLEE (Financial Literacy, Entrepreneurship and Ethics Internship Program). The program aims to enable children acquire practical experience in finance, saving, loans and management of businesses.
Each morning, with boundless energy, the girls unfailingly came into the office offering their assistance and eagerness to gain firsthand experience of the concepts they have been studying.
Recruiting young talent and developing ambitious future leaders is a source of wealth for our firm, and as such it was a memorable week for everyone.
In their own words “we had a great time at Templars, thank you for everything”.
Here’s wishing Nabeela and Funmilola all the very best in their academic and professional lives. We’re rooting for you!
