Make the most of the internship, team Precious Penny!

 

The UWC/Metropolitan FINLIT Challenge challenge concluded in May and saw 5 University of the Western Cape (UWC) students win the challenge and earn an internship to design and develop an innovative financial literacy programme for Metropolitan, a division of MMI Holdings, to be rolled out countrywide.

The winning team, Precious Penny, designed a game to be used as a financial literacy tool – an edutainment approach to help people learn more about financial literacy and enjoy the learning process.

Precious Penny now have the opportunity to work with a professional design team from Elevator to develop their financial literacy programme for use by Metropolitan (the client) – and empower others with the ability to control their own financial futures.
