Compuscan frequently hosts free Money Management Workshops to educate and equip individuals with the skills and knowledge to better manage their personal finances and make informed financial decisions. We also provide attendees with free credit reports and the necessary support to understand their credit worthiness and debt status.
On the 9th & 30th May 2011, Compuscan Academy once again chose to make a difference within the local communities. Compuscan Academy joined hands with Community project leader’s Christopher Sloster and Randall Pienaar to bring about an awareness of consumer rights. As part of our community outreach, Compuscan Academy fully sponsored both the events.
A total of 42 people were given the opportunity to be empowered in the following areas:
- Taking charge of their financial situation
- Assess and understand their financial status
- Manage their credit accounts responsible
- Understand credit bureaus and credit reports
Learners at the workshop were really grateful for the opportunity and had many valued questions. We believe that the learners left with a new perception of credit bureaus and also felt empowered to go out and to educate their family and friends. So in essence those 42 learners will not be using the term blacklist ever again but make more informed decisions.
