Operation HOPE (HOPE), United Against Malaria (UAM) and the Relate are proud to announce a new partnership that consolidate financial literacy training with community development projects in South Africa.
In a recently highlighted special edition of USA Today, UAM and Relate lead the path in the struggle against malaria and the introduction of sustainable business opportunities for African entrepreneurs. With the help of HOPE, these organizations now will introduce entrepreneurial training programs for Africa youth, investing in the brain power and skills necessary to build African enterprise.
Partners of HOPE’s Business in A Box initiative (HBIAB), UAM’s bracelets are handmade in South Africa and are part of an economic development project established by Relate, a nonprofit social enterprise.
Through the HBIAB initiative, the UAM bracelets will be packaged and sold by US students between 9 -18 years old, inspiring them to develop their business skills and financial literacy. Anchored by HOPE’s award-winning youth financial literacy curriculum, Banking on Our Future, HBIAB helps youth in low-wealth communities with entrepreneurship training on how to start, build, grow and maintain a legal and profitable business.
