The Brief

 

Afrika Tikkun has developed a programme called “YAP”. This is a 12-week incubation programme for youth development projects across Gauteng and Western Cape.

We needed to create a 2-day programme that covered financial literacy and starting and running a small business.

This 2-day workshop is aimed at our young starters. What skills do you need to know to make and manage your money? Day one we cover personal finance and day 2 we cover how to start and manage a small business. This comprehensive workshop will not only help them work their way out of poverty but gives them the tools to stay out.

 

The client had the following objectives and content we needed to cover:

 

  • Financial terminology
  • Money mindset
  • Saving
  • Investing
  • Debt
  • Budgeting
  • Interest
  • Insurance
  • Tax
  • What is entrepreneurship
  • How to start a small business
  • Business Model Canvas
  • Reputation
  • Money ethics
  • How to pitch

 

The Programme

 

This is a 2- day workshop, there are normally no less than 5 in the same week across Gauteng and Western Cape and we have a Money Savvy team to service all 5 concurrently.

 

These 2 days are packed with lots of fun games and activities. Every concept we teach has an activity or game we play to re-enforce all of the concepts and keep the younger generation engaged. We don’t just teach them how to manage money we teach them how to make it too.

 

With some careful guidance we help these young starters identify their personal strengths and weaknesses and explore how they can turn their passion into profit. How to start and sustain a small business and how to raise the capital to start the business. We give you templates and techniques that will work in any environment.

Conclusion

 

We started our first pilot project with Afrika Tikkun in 2020 with 1 workshop. In 2021 they booked us for 10 workshops and in 2022 they have booked us for 24 workshops.

We look forward to many more years of changing lives while working in partnership with Afrika Tikkun.
