Young Entrepreneur Foundation teaches children about money

Young Entrepreneur Foundation offers financial literacy and enterprise programmes to children from previously disadvantages communities.

The programme, which relies on donor funds from corporate and government entities - targets children as young as seven to foster valuable entrepreneurial skills.

When you are 7 years old - believe it or not - you can learn how to start and run your own micro-enterprise. You can also learn financial literacy.

702/Cape Talk's Eusebius McKaiser spoke to head of the foundation, Zuki Mzozoyana, about her determination to play a part in developing tomorrow's leaders.

The age-specific programmes are categorised as follows:

  • Minipreneurs (between ages 7 to 8)
  • On-Your-Marks (between ages 9 to 12)
  • BizKids (between ages 13 to 15)

The programme has added a category suitable to Grade 12 learners in the form of a workplace readiness placement component.

You teach them there's only four things you can do with your money - you can spend it, you have save it, you can invest it or you can share it.
