Our Career Development Department has joined forces with prominent banks, investment platforms, and visionary entrepreneurs to inaugurate a groundbreaking wealth creation initiative, "Money Moves 4ME." The primary objective of the Money Moves 4ME initiative is to empower our families with essential financial literacy skills. We recently held a spectacular and well-attended launch event at Fairview Primary School, with nearly 400 guests in attendance. The event covered various topics such as personal savings, investment strategies, home loans, and entrepreneurship. Some of our parents, alumni, alumni parents and unemployed youth from our Youth Bridge programme attended the event.
“We started with the vision of empowering a few of our alumni and their families,” says Louise de Marillac st Julien, Career Development Manager at Christel House, “but the overwhelming interest it has garnered from our community and businesses has truly astounded us.”
“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.”
Tanya Adams, parent of a Grade R student at our school commented, “I am a hairstylist and work from home. 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 learnt so much in terms of growing financially and creating wealth for myself and my family in the future.”
We would like to express our gratitude to the following organisations who participated in the Money Moves 4ME event: Prime Candidate U, Silulo Ulutho Technologies, Easy Equities, BDO Wealth Advisers, First National Bank, Capitec Bank, Cricut and Old Mutual.
