Since 2006, we have worked with NGOs and developed hands-on, simple and relevant programmes. Because we are independent from financial institutions, our programmes are not biased and focus on solving problems.
- We assess your target groups’ issues and needs.
- We design a programme, either as stand-alone or to complement your existing programmes.
- We train your staff to facilitate it and measure its impact.
Your NGO already runs programmes on health or nutrition, or provide shelter, sanitation or vocational training. Why include financial education?
- Reduce your clients’ financial vulnerability by giving them the basic skills to:
- Manage irregular income, reduce and control debt, save for commitments and emergencies,
- Reduce family arguments around money and control consumption, especially around holidays and celebrations,
- Avoid scams and exploitation.
- Leverage your income generation or livelihood programmes:
- Ensure your clients effectively perform bookkeeping and use it to improve their profit, plan and manage their business cash,
- Encourage them to find business ideas that positively impact their community and environment, and not directly compete with their neighbours,
- Instil business ethics including with family and friends involved in their business.
Examples of consulting we have done:
- Design a family budgeting training for low-income families supported by Save the Children – Nepal and India.
- Design an income-generation training programme for GIZ Laos.
- Design a financial management training for Apprentis d’Auteuil’s partners working with children in streets in RD Congo
- Design a budgeting training for coffee farmers in Laos (Outspan).
- Design a bookkeeping training for small businesses for Enfants du Mekong, Cambodia.
- Design a personal budgeting programme for factory workers in China (Mothercare)
- Design a family money management programme for ICS-SP Kenya and Tanzania to complement their parenting programme.
