When Olga George’s relatives asked her why she was always able to be the first person to buy school books and uniforms for her daughter, she told them: SET.
Olga, now an MPower graduate at the Aurukun O-Hub, signed up for SET when her daughter, Kayoka, was just three years old.
Ten years later, Kayoka is a Year 8 student at Western Cape College in Weipa, where her favourite subjects are English and PE (Physical Education).
“SET has helped me a lot to provide school items, including books, stationery, uniforms, a laptop and many other things,” said Olga.
“It has taken the stress out of money when I need to meet school needs.”
Olga was also an active member of MPower (and previously FIM) long before she joined the O-Hub team in July this year.
“I have gained a lot of knowledge about managing my finances, harnessing opportunities and working towards achieving my dreams,” she said.
Now Olga is looking forward to encouraging other community members—as well as her relatives—to take advantage of the opportunities available through SET and MPower.
“Even family members in Napranum have been inspired and want to access these opportunities. It’s absolutely great.” she said.
