Avocado Vision’s Financial Literacy programme was launched at the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic and quickly gained traction across the country. Despite the challenges brought about by the lockdown, our company remained steadfast in its mission to reach communities and equip them with the knowledge and skills needed to manage their finances well.
To achieve this, our determined team utilized digital platforms like WhatsApp, Zoom, and Teams to deliver the training to over 18,183 participants throughout South Africa. This new way of learning has now become the new normal and has helped many individuals keep their spending habits in check.
One of our trainers, Rofhiwa Munzhelele, admits that he was initially skeptical about the effectiveness of online training, but the experience turned out to be a great learning journey for him. He was surprised at how engaged participants were and how they were able to learn from each other, even in the absence of physical interaction. Rofhiwa now uses various tactics to make the learning process fun and engaging for everyone involved.
Our Financial Literacy Training not only imparts valuable information but also gives participants the confidence to explore opportunities that may not have been available to them before. For instance, one of our participants landed a job using Avo finance modules as a reference. This kind of impact motivates us to reach even more people and change more lives.
At Avocado Vision, we are not just concerned with providing certificates; we are passionate about transforming lives. Our training model creates job opportunities and exposes people to new skills and experiences that can help solve the unemployment problem in our country. We have also taken into account factors like data costs and administrative support to ensure that every participant receives the support they need to succeed.
We are committed to delivering impactful skills and enterprise development training to all communities in South Africa, regardless of the conditions. Connect with us on firstname.lastname@example.org,and join us in our mission to drive change and empower individuals and communities.
