Enabling better futures through teaching South Africans about money.

Many people don’t know how to manage their money. Recognising the difference that knowledge of money matters can make, a team of Hollardites developed an educational programme called Streetwise Finance, and recruited other Hollardites to help teach groups of South Africans the basics of finance.
We believe there is a better way for South Africans to treat their money.

WHY?

Hollard recognises that financial inclusivity is a major issue in South Africa, but there’s far more to it than having the financial resources to participate in our economy.  It’s also about understanding how to manage money.  
Inadequate financial literacy is one more snare in the poverty trap. We believe that if South Africans are given an opportunity to learn basic financial management skills they’ll be empowered to make better financial decisions that can have a profound impact on the way they choose to live their lives, manage their affairs, and most importantly, allow them to retire comfortably.
