Support for better money management
MoneyMob Talkabout is a community-based program delivering financial literacy education with and for people in remote Indigenous communities, in order to help them positively manage their money. The program has permanent locations in Amata and Pukatja in the APY Lands that provide a one-stop shop for local community members to interact with the broader economy in a safe and supportive environment.
We set up the project to help alleviate poverty through education, advocacy and support.
By providing relevant, easily understood financial literacy education, and by promoting healthy money stories and messages, this program ultimately builds stronger and healthier communities. The program also argues for access to appropriate financial services and products, helps Anangu to manage money until they have independent skills; providing financial counselling services for Anangu in crisis.
Since helping to establish this vital program, we have gone on to provide ongoing support in order to see its success continue.
