The first project is a people’s centred development project of General Advice, Information, Help, Guidance, Digital Support and Signposting.
The second one is about exploring sustainable ways of meeting buying needs and consumption goals that they may otherwise find difficult to satisfy in order to reduce their condition of poverty and hardship.
The third one is a responsive financial advocacy initiative of support to financially unaware users (Multi-dimensionally Poor Children, Young People and Families) for any economic times (of boom and downturn).
