The S4T eWorkshop is a 14-week facilitated online learning programme from August 11 - November 21, 2021. Designed to support practitioners whilst implementing their programmes, the workshop steps participants through the key phases of S4T using case studies, reflection on practice and group work, drawing on the experience of its participants and guided by leading S4T experts. In addition, the learning community provides “just in time” peer to peer support to practitioners implementing S4T. To find out more about the eWorkshop learning approach, see the main Technical Academy page.
S4T builds financial resilience by supporting community members to save together in a safe, convenient and flexible way. Savings groups are owned, managed and operated by the members, using a simple, transparent method whereby groups accumulate and convert small amounts of cash into savings. The group’s savings can be lent to members as credit. This supports parents and caregivers to manage cashflow, generate income, and meet their family’s basic needs.
