Financial knowledge empowers families

Christel House South Africa (CHSA) is teaming up with banks, investment platforms, and entrepreneurs to launch a wealth creation initiative. Money Moves 4ME is tailored to benefit low-income individuals. “We started with the vision of empowering a few of our alumni and their families,” says Louise de Marillac st Julien, CHSA Career Development Manager, “but the overwhelming interest it has garnered from our community and businesses has truly astounded us.”

Over 400 participants attended the launch. The primary objective of the Money Moves 4ME initiative is to empower attendees with essential financial literacy skills. The event covered various topics such as personal savings, investment strategies, home loans, and entrepreneurship. “It’s been amazing to see so many people, so hungry for knowledge,” said Luvuyo Rani, co-founder, and CEO of Silulo Ulutho Technologies. “I hope this is just the beginning of an exciting space and energy around entrepreneurship.”  Ryno van Lingen, Key Accounts Manager at First National Bank, agreed. “Sharing information and knowledge and then helping people implement it in their finances is so rewarding. We are always excited and feel privileged to be invited to events like these, especially to help our business clients and communities manage their money.” Christel House South Africa alumni and family members participated in presentations throughout the day-long financial literacy event. “I am a hairstylist and work from home,” shared Tanya Adams, parent of a Grade R student at Christel House. “I never thought that coming to a workshop on a Saturday would give me so much information. At first, I thought it was just a career initiative, but I learned so much in terms of growing financially and creating wealth for myself and my family in the future.”
