EXPLORING TOOLS FOR FINANCIAL INCLUSION FOR THOSE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PYRAMID

GAIN A PERSPECTIVE of financial literacy that spans borders and values - grasp how an understanding of financial concepts varies vastly across both culture and circumstance, and explore how the principles at the core of a healthy relationship with money may be translated to meet the needs of individuals in different communities. Participants will also receive guidance in delivering powerful and dynamic lessons through the incorporation of games, skits and a belief in their capability to make an impact.

"thank YOu for giving us this opportunity, it really broadened my horizons and I learnt a lot through this process. thank you for such a well-planned trip where we not only had fun but we also learnt a lot."

"Definitely a trip that i will remember for years to come... the trip treated me to many different experiences, and many opportunities to step out of my comfort zone. everything was planned well, and there was never a day that felt wasted. it is no coincidence that the trip could run so smoothly. overall it was excellent and i would give it 12/13 stars."
