The partnership is aimed at promoting financial literacy among youth in South Africa by sponsoring young people from Amathuba Collective on the Blackbullion South Africa platform.
Amathuba Collective is a social enterprise that directly serves and impacts youth from urban under-resourced, instable communities by means of creating supportive ecosystems, fostering mental health and improving family economic stability through economic participation and financial inclusion.

"We are proud to partner with Blackbullion South Africa to promote financial literacy among youth," said Paymentology head of Programme Management & Sustainability, Drisha Kirkman. "Many young people in South Africa do not receive the financial education they need to make informed decisions about their finances. This lack of financial literacy can lead to poor financial decisions, debt, and other financial challenges that can have long-lasting impacts. We are committed to improving financial literacy amongst South African youth as it is essential for success in life.”
Blackbullion South Africa is a leading financial education platform that provides young people with access to interactive courses and tools to help them develop the skills they need to manage their finances. The platform is designed to be engaging, easy to use and low in data usage, making it ideal for youth in South Africa.

WaFunda is a for-profit social enterprise that delivers a localised version of Blackbullion, a UK based education platform, to the South African market. "By sponsoring access for youth to our platform, Paymentology is helping to ensure that more young people receive the tools and resources they need to achieve upward financial mobility , which helps us in our mandate of driving impact at scale”
Paymentology is committed to creating impact through its social initiatives as part of its Changing Lives programme. Partnering with Blackbullion South Africa to promote financial education and inclusion among youth aligns with its core business as a financial services provider as well as the organisation's focus on doing good.
