Nina Othman & Grow the Goose
In Malaysia, comprehensive financial education is only available in expensive private and international schools, but is not embedded in the public school system. Grow the Goose believes that every child, regardless of parents’ income, has the right to financial literacy and should be able to create a financially sustainable life for themselves and their community. So the company aims to provide all children with the knowledge to Save Diligently, Earn Responsibly & Invest Sustainably. This approach is adapted from the fable: ‘The Farmer & the Golden Goose” with the clear message: instead of killing the goose kids learn how to GROW the GOOSE (Goose here referring to one’s savings). Through financial empowerment workshops Grow the Goose supports youth to become financially disciplined by the age of 18.
The SE Outreach Accelerator will provide Nina with the support and tools to accelerate Grow the Goose business growth and future social impact.
