Is a financial literacy programme designed for disadvantaged high school learners. This programme teaches learners about financial concepts such as managing debt, looking after one’s savings and spending wisely. The programme consists of movies that run over 5 consecutive Sundays during May.
Mpho “Popps” Modikoane stars in the movies which make use of comedy and drama to teach financial literacy lessons and use township life as a setting to resonate with the target audience. The movies were made to address some of the biggest challenges facing our youth: over indebtedness, lack of savings, and wasteful spending.
The sponsors are proud to lead a movement of change, one where young people’s financial acumen receives the greater emphasis it so desperately needs and our youth emerge wiser and with a safer financial future.
The programme is presented in an 80 minute feature-film at cinema locations which have been strategically selected for their convenience and accessibility for the learners.
Each student leaves the session with a Financial Literacy Toolkit for future reference.
