Teach Children to Save

 

TCTS SA is a national savings campaign rolled out in South Africa in July 2008 (Savings Month) as a pilot. The founding partners for TCTS SA are The Banking Association of South Africa, The South African Savings Institute, ABAEF, Citi Bank and Operation Hope. TCTS SA has since been adopted as an annual programme of The Banking Association of South Africa and SASI.

As a bank that is in the forefront of empowering and investing in its people and puts its communities needs first, ubank is proud to support and participate in the TCTS SA campaign. Our volunteers have generously helped us realise this since the programmes inception. The financial preparedness of our nation’s youth is essential to their well-being and of vital importance to our economic future.

Following on the sentiments of various local and international economists, saving is a skill that everyone needs and equips us to make tough yet smart financial decisions. Both saving and education remain a prime ingredient in providing access to employment, economic prosperity, improved quality of life, personal fulfilment and growth for all of South Africa’s people.

During the 2011 TCTS SA campaign, ubanks 116 volunteers reached out to 5575 learners in 16 schools.
