Money Fo Sho financial skills training took place in Langa at Phandulwazi. Again in this training it was only young females who come from an organisation called Bahadi. The only challenge is that we started bit late but we managed to finish on time. These young girls loved to topic of Budget. They promised to introduce the training to the parents and to their friends.

Module 6 to 9 The information is good but i find this training is relevant for employed and self employed people. Module 9 can be trained to any group. I enjoyed this training because I had relevant target and tax module took long since July is tax season. I also gain a lot from this training especially from retirement packages. 1 group had people who never attended any financial literacy training so I used budget as an introduction to make it easier to adjust with these modules.

ABSA programme It was great to work with learners as there was no issue of recruitment. The exam was on so the staff had to workout a timetable that will accommodate the training. On the day where all Mbhudula learners were either writing or revising, the principal organised with a nearby high school Samora Machel to train their learners as well. Teachers also attended the training and they find it informative. I think there should be a training which designed for learners which cover the basics of finance. According to money fo sho the training is for 4 hours but the same training is 2 hours for ABSA. That was challenging to compress the training but it worked as I had many groups so it was a learning curve. Working with young ones is sometimes problematic as they want to be disciplined at all times. The principal addressed them and the situation was better. The registers were challenging because half of the class will share the same surname and names. It was a struggle to match the evaluation and the registers. Due to timeframe and learners juggling between the training and their exams I was forced to collect the evaluation later. That caused so many problems because they were sharing information and I spent the whole week after the training trying to sort evaluation forms according to registers. This training drained my energy and my pocket but it was worth it. Those learners needed that information more that I need money and my energy. I still forget to take pictures at times because my focus is on training. Teachers helped by taking pictures and send them to me. I learnt from that experience however it is better to conduct training in your province to minimise costs.

Coronation module 1 to 9 This was the first to train 1 group on all coronation trainings. In May I trained a group of traditional healers and other few people who were not traditional healers. I discovered it works well when 1 group attends all. From Money fo sho experiences they were more active during modular sessions as it serves as basic. Some challenges were tax calculations need each participant to have a handout so that they can relate easily and have something to refer later. Tax season is around the corner so the session was prolonged by many questions based on their current situations. The insurance session was also popular and there many stories of insurance reps who made some take insurances without their consent or make them sign papers with no explanation. It was a wake up call for all to always make sure they ask for a document to take home. The issue of retirement was taken serious as some were already approaching pension age but they didn't know they could take retirement policy even though they were not employed but rather self employed. One lady shared a story of her son who was trained by her about money fo sho as I always encourage my participants to be the ambassadors of financial literacy. She shared some ways of boosting income which is mobile car wash and the business is booming. The son is in grade 11 but he is financially independent and has a saving account for his university fees. This story is humbling and it shows when people are informed they take wise decisions. Module 6 to 9 works better if it is offered together with module 1 to 5. This training was a success.

This was a very unique session for me. Firstly the entire leadership team of the organisation was monitoring the session.The fishermen and women were eager to participate and shared their insights. It was exciting and the excitement died down when it came to will and insurances because most of them do not have assets and they do not earn a stable income. We spoke at length about booting your income, just to share ideas on what to do to have a secondary income and not to rely on the fishing season.

The training session with the fishermen and woman was very interesting. Their stories were unique to any group i trained before and it was challenging to keep their interest with the issues with regard to life policies and wills even though they re extremely vulnerable. Because of their unstable income source, they found it difficult to realize that they should make provision

The 1 day training is a very informative. However having done it several times there are some issues of concern 1. 6 hours is too long for the community training. Some of the participants have not been to school for a very long time and they get tired. 2. The training content is for 6 hours which does not cater for administration. Administration for this training can take 2 hours depending on the level of literacy for the participants. Before the training you have to do the pre-assessment. After the training the facilitator has to check the register and make amendments, write certificates and manage post-evaluation forms. 3. The payment of the training is not equivalent to the amount of wok that is done. The rate is less than the work and time. After the training you have to courier or deliver the originals.To increase the pay for a day without changing the rate maybe 50 people maybe allowed for 1 training. 4. There are too many activities- to reduce the time maybe some activities need to be cut. 5. Pictures-as it is requirement to have participants' pictures, there should be a consent form so that people are protected and we take pictures of those willing to take part. To provide training does not give us powers to decide whether people should be on these pictures. To show respect for humanity they must give consent.

For the months of October and November I have trained 4 Ikhaya Fo' Sho! and 2 Coronation In Depth workshops. The common trend with all workshops has been the enthusiasm and eagerness of Participants to imbibe the knowledge and skills during training. Another commonality has been the erratic numbers of Delegates attending the sessions. I have experienced on several occasions cancellation of sessions due to very minimal numbers of Delegates pitching up, notwithstanding incidents where participants had confirmed their attendance the previous day or two before the workshop. With Catering having been prepared a day before, this puts one in a very disadvantageous situation where you have to give the food away and in the process incur some losses. i am wondering how Avo can help in such situations, to come up with ways and means of assisting .

Both Coronation and TUHF programmes were very hectic and fulfilling at the same time. Delegates in both programmes felt motivated and raring to go out there in their Communities to embark on Projects addressing the needs of their Communities while at the same time creating income generating opportunities, iutilising their talents and skills in the process. This was only possible after , besides facilitating Financial Management programmes, motivation of Delegates has become an integral part of facilitation ensuring Delegates do personal introspection of what Skills and talents they possess which they can utilise effectively to realise their dreams and goals and in the process also create employment to their immediate community members.

Working with coronation on this trench two in Free State has been quiet an experimental in a sense that I'v e been thinking what it would be like to back to the community that I have trained before and refresh them to establish how fa far are they with getting their finances in order.Some of them had challenges that they needed help with and the training helped them because they knew where to go for help. Recruiting them back into training was not a challenge but getting them to come everyday until the fifth day was not easy. There those who came consecutively and those who came on intervals because of commitments they had somewhere else.The learners appreciated training, and feedback that I got from them gave me assurance that all the work that was put in from organising the venues,the catering and training itself did not go in vain, although some of them stated that its the first time they see the certificate of that size.Thank you Coronation.

Since the month of June, one has been hectic with training various members of the community throughout the length and breadth of the Gauteng province in various programmes: Coronation In Depth Financial management, Mzansi Fo' Sho!, Ikhaya Fo' Sho!. I have expirienced some ups and downs in the process. The ups being seeing the state of wonderment in the eyes of Delegates when sharing the key pillars of Financial Management : Financial Goals,Budgeting, Credit Management, Banking, Scams & Fraud, saving & Investment, Asset Management among others. with the follow - up programme In - Depth Coronation Financial Management programme it was reassuring to observe that ones' effort had not gone into waste in sharing with the Delegates then in the previous initial Basic Financial Management programme. There was positive feedback as to how the programme had influenced their lives in a positive way with them being in a more improved status regarding their Finances. The down side has been on several occasions Delegates not pitching up for the workshop after preparing catering and all the other logistics and one being forced to postpone the workshop. I hope that is the life of a Facilitator, counting your losses and moving on. What inspires me besides these challenges is the Change one is bringing to Communities including contributing to the Development of our young growing Democracy.

My name is Thembekile Spogter an Avocado trainer on the Coronation Money fo'sho financial skills training for Communities, I am based in Steytlerville in he Eastern Cape. Ever since the start of the community trainings on Money fo'sho, the community received the training very well and are very appreciative of the information that they received through the training and it will help them in their future decision making. Some participants, according to them, have started implementing their own saving techniques by cutting on smoking and brand buying when doing groceries and the needs above wants practice, the savings are done in a savings account rather than the transmission account as they used to and later use the money and some have even opened up small businesses to boost their income. The major impact of he training in my community is that it got people thinking and talking about how, when and on what they will use their money. The aged when attending the training started to raise questions as to where they can draw and safely store their wills, something that was unheard of previously. For me it was an eye opener as well as people were relating their own stories and their own situations and how they were saving money. Many people now are open regarding their debt and some are coming and tell about the phone call they got and are not running away anymore for shops and the whole credit portion was a very interesting topic in all training. There are challenges majority of young people are unemployed and many people think now that I am a financial advisor and come with debt problems to me but I have referred them to the correct institutions. Some young people also thought its a job opportunity. I am very happy, honored and proud to have been part of the CORONATION MONEY FO'SHO FINANCIAL SKILLS TRAINING FOR COMMUNITIES.

CORONATION PROJECT: Since the beginning of the project I have Facilitated 12 sessions, 10 of them with Taxi Drivers in Alexandra and the other 2 with a group of Care Givers in Edenvale who had completed their training program and Young men belonging to the Alexandra Football Association on the verge of being professional footballers. All three groups appreciated and were excited about the program and expressed gratitude towards the sponsors for opening their eyes about the importance of money management in totality as espoused by the program. Personally the program entrenched its importance and validity to my affairs relating to finances. I have started various money saving and investment vehicles for various goals and so far i am on the right track.

The Coronation trainings had more positives than negatives for me as a trainer.I believe though that the negatives or rather struggles are the ones one need to dwell on so that repetitions can be minimized.So many mistakes in the registers by learners have made me realize aneed to do it otherwise.A need for one individual to write the register.Securing venues was also a struggle in some instances but this was highly minimal.Some learners arriving nearly one and half hour after training had begun. There were successes in as far as securing learners for a session was concerned.There is always room for improvement though.The passion for facilitation seems to have returned and this rubs off on the attitudes of the learners as they can read your mood during the session and you get maximum participation from them

The trainnings impacted in my life in so many ways that i had not imagine.Being a Trainer for more that 4 years has really been a great and challenging journey i must say.it has been a learning curve that one really appreciate as from the point im standing, proud to say its has indeed sharpened my tools of anaysis..the way i view the world and greatly help me to deepen my understaing on how the finacial world works. Organinsing and Trainning I must say it wasn't easy to recruit and get to train and get to train as schedule.Timing or the season made it highly challenging beacause people or stakerholder are closing shops or are in the festive mood. That is when i realised that building realationship its very important. In few months that we started with the project...i must say im proud to say most of the people ive trained really aprreciated the efforts of Avovision to bring education which really talks to the really the find themselves in.Mining communities with lots of opportunities not utilized are now adamant that they a ready to face and are in position to make informed finacial decision about they finances . I was able to train the following groups: Affected minning communities around Mogalakwena Community home based care centres REDCROSS peer educations and staff SANTA care workers Through it all i learned that change is inevitable...Haikhona guys ..Social collective really humbled me to the core.The challagees ive had to deal with regarding subbmissioms,was at times frustrating but hey...i got to up my game and have patience to get to understand the system. HO STAFF Your support guys really kept ne going even when i felt frustrated ke Social Collective..Without you i wouldn't have work to produce.

For my community this training came handy as they were financial blinded they could not tell between bank accounts , they taught budgeting is to write a list of groceries when doing shopping . When coming to credit when doing credit display part they could not believe how much they giving up so we all agreed to start saving towards our goals , they really associate with the programmes modules and their daily lives .In one session we were brought to tears by an 16 yrs old Lindokuhle who said in his 3-5 yrs saving he wants to save his pocket money to help the most disadvantaged to continue schooling . For myself it really sadened me learning that my communities are so much in credit and they see credit as an only option to life and that they do not ask questions in places like banks and furniture stores as they are afraid of to upset educated people so they end up paying the price .

They learnt a lot about budgeting, prioritising between wants and needs, funeral and life covers. There was a lot of discussion around Black tax which I thought we should have a subject around that. I also liked the diversity within the group. I realy appreaciate this opportunity of impacting my community in a positive way.

This is the very first of it's kind around Northern Cape, specifically Kuruman and surrounding areas and therefore everyone is so very interested about learning how to manage money wisely and ways of growing money and am so happy to be the one sharing such important information with them. This project has also helped with to become financially stable because I can also better my life and buy assets which i've also needed in my life. I want to thank Directors of Avocado Visions as well as their entire team for giving me such an awesome opportunity not forgetting Coronation who made it all possible.

I had a great experience with all of my groups, the Community Development Workers that I am linked up with by the City of Cape Town were welcoming, supportive and very excited to have a valuable training such as the Financial Skills Training to provide to the community. I could proudly say that Avocado Vision is creating quite a positive footprint in Cape Town. Even the councillor from Greenpoint, who came to receive me when I went to train COR- 1519 indicated that as the City of Cape Town they have heard of the good work that we have done in our first two sessions in Town Two and Site B and they are hoping to continue developing Khayelitsha with us going forward. On the other hand, the participants were enthusiastic and fully willing to change into beings that are money savvy; by means of budgeting, saving and investing for the future. We are currently viewed as the team that is changing the people's lives. I AM VERY PROUD TO BE PART OF THE AVOCADO VISION TEAM!

They recruited people to attend the training and they also attended to make sure the training is a success. They requested more trainings because the area has 6 sections, unfortunately I could only provide 1 as I have done my 3 sessions already. People were so active and they enjoyed new information shared. They also shared information about different scams that were tried on them. I am looking forward in having more sessions for this community n 2018. It is far from where I stay but I believe that it is important to provide information where it is most needed.

Cor-1519 Financial Skills-Money Fo Sho' Training in Site B Y-section (deep informal settlement of Khayelitsha) was incredible. Due to people going home for holidays, the attendance was not as good as expected. But it was compensated by the interest and participation of the learners. The learners' responses indicated a sense of revival and it was as though we have had ignited a sense of looking back and understanding people's initial dreams as well as giving a way forward. Being in such environment I believe, can possibly compel one to forget who they are and what they would want to achieve in life...However, by just being there and giving me them hope through the session, it felt like we had merely reminded them..funny I don't go to church, but the circumstances forced me to train in the church..

What I will be transferring in my community and those surrounding ones! Banks and other institutions are engulfing consumers with credit opportunitiesthe ability to apply for credit cards or use credit checks to pay other credit balancesand without the proper knowledge or checks and balances, it is easy to get into financial trouble. In past generations, cash was used for virtually every purchase. Today, cash is rarely used. The way we shop has changed as well. Online shopping has become the top choice for many younger shoppers, creating ample opportunities to use and overextend credit, an all too easy way to accumulate debt, fast. Many of these consumers have very little understanding of finances, how credit works and the potential impact on their financial well-being for many, many years. In fact, the lack of financial understanding has been motioned as one of the main reasons behind savings and investing problems faced by many South Africans. What Is Financial Literacy? Financial literacy is the confluence of financial, credit and debt management and the knowledge that is necessary to make financially responsible decisionsdecisions that are integral to our everyday lives. Financial literacy includes understanding how a checking account works, what using a credit card really means, and how to avoid debt. In sum, financial literacy impacts the daily decisions an average family makes when trying to balance a budget, buy a home, fund their childrens education and ensure an income at retirement. A lack of financial literacy is not a problem only in emerging or developing economies. Consumers in developed or advanced economies also fail to demonstrate a strong grasp of financial principles in order to understand and negotiate the financial landscape, manage financial risks effectively and avoid financial pitfalls. The level of financial literacy varies according to education and income levels, but evidence shows that highly educated consumers with high incomes can be just as ignorant about financial issues as less educated, lower income consumers. Although in general, lower income individuals tend to be less financially literate. And it seems consumers are hesitant to learn. Why It Matters Financial literacy is crucial to help ensure consumers save enough to provide adequate income in retirement while avoiding high levels of debt that might result in bankruptcy and foreclosure. Conversely, those with low financial literacy borrow more, have less wealth and end up paying unnecessary fees for financial products. In other words, those with lower financial literacy tend to buy on credit, and are unable to pay their full balance each month and end up spending more on interest fees. This group also does not invest, has trouble with debt and a poor understanding of the terms of their mortgages or loans. Even more worrisome, many consumers believe that they are far more financially literate than they really are. And while this may seem like an individual problem, it is broader in nature and more influential on the entire population than previously believed. Financial literacy is an issue with broad implications for economic health and an improvement can lead the way to a global economy that is competitive and strong. The Bottom Line Any improvement in financial literacy will have a profound impact on consumers and their ability to provide for their future while avoiding the pitfalls of debt. Recent trends are making it all the more imperative that consumers understand basic finances because they are being asked to shoulder more of the burden of investment decisions in their retirement accounts while having to decipher more complex financial products and options. The tasks are not easy but a better understanding and more knowledge can ease the burden tremendously. Ndodesizwe Mayekiso

The training was informative, I thought I was one of the most informed consumer as I have formal Business Management training from the University of Stellenbosch Business Academy. To my surprise, I realise that as much Business Management is my game, however, when it comes to my personal/ family financial management, I find that I am not on point.

After the first sesssion i was able to tell that this is the fruitful training that will equip my community with valuable information and they will no more be the victims of finance business vultures . This training made me realise that I have been hopeless with my finances yet all along I, thought that I had enough information , I was clueless with what my bank accounts services are , what are the benefits and challenges of insurances , saving methods and all related financial issues . All in all I thank Avocado vision and Coronation for the opportunity they gave me and my opportunity .

To the Avo Visiony team: Everything was very well prepared. We received everything we needed and more. Thank you for your spirit of excellence not forgetting the love! On the training: As someone who came to do the training for the first time, it is a valuable lesson on how to communicate effectively. It is extremely useful and a necessity for all new trainers to attend. The programme is very useful and we learned more than what I had expected. The tips that were provided make people understand you better when you communicate. Fantastic and really useful course. I really enjoyed today’s session and gained lots of practical insight. This was very helpful. The practical tips that we were given/thought me is something I can start with immediately. They are powerful tools. Our facilitator: Huge enthusiasm I must say. She is really good at what she does and makes it enjoyable. She made us understand the topics with brilliant practical examples. I seriously had so much fun. Susan was really enthusiastic and I thoroughly enjoyed her presentation. Her interactive approach was enjoyable and I learned a lot from her. Susan was really good.

I had a mixed group of matriculants, teachers and students at my session yesterday. It was a small group but they work very well together. As one participant said:" I really enjoyed the learning maps, cause it really helped me to look at the way i see my finances differently. Its so colourful and you can really relate. I will defnitely start to budget" One of the matriculants said that she don't ever want to be in a position like a parents that make loans at the bank and now they are struggling to get out of their debt. A retired teacher who also attended said she wish she had known this information when we was younger, that she would have made different financial choices.She's 71 years of age now. It was also great having Susan with us

My first training on the 24th Feb was quite challenging. Partly because i had taken a break for over a year, to me a few minutes to recover to my usual training mode. Trained a group of EPWP workers that do rural road mantainance. It was interesting and challenging as most of them have never been to school but amazing enough non of them believe in buying things on credit and they soaked up the knowledge like sponges!

I was reminded that Entrepreneurship is an art of making money and that it must be enjoyed whilst doing it. I also want to remind CEO's about the many developmental opportunities that Africa and SA enjoys and doers like us need to pull power together to develop and change circumstances for our people.

The Conference was empowering. Ma Thapelo's programme entrenched some beliefs and habits I am currently practicing and opened my eyes to other possibilities out there to enable one to reach one's full potential regarding self - actualisation and making a substantial difference in other people's lives utilising one's gifts and talents. I also gained a lot from sharing with other CEOs their challenges, successes including how to overcome the challenges. The passion and enthusiasm of other CEOs was contagious arising in oneself that burning desire to make a positive impact on the unfortunately ignorant communities of their capacities to change their lives positively by tapping into their God given talents.
