End of school year approaching in African Countries

As the end of the school year approaches across the world and particularly in African countries there is a thought of families back home and making sure that there are enough funds to send money internationally into the safe hands of their loved ones. If you are living and working in the UK with a family to provide for back in Africa and with children at school age, we understand how hard you are working to provide and make sure they have everything that they need, however regularly you send money back to them.


Family is everything in Africa, we see this consistently with the customers we serve and the funds that they send home to keep their family safe, fed, and educated. For those that send money home to pay for education, the end of the school year means a time to evaluate the year before, to send money back home that can be used for the break before the next school year begins, whether this is for things that might not be affordable the rest of the year or other items. It also helps with the development of the family unit, a gift of love to family members at a time when they need it most.


International Day of Family Remittances

The International Day of Family Remittances (IDFR) is celebrated every year on 16th June. It recognises the vital contribution that over 200 million migrant workers who send money back home to over 800 million family members in low and middle-income countries. There is a massive resilience, dedication to hard work, and love shown by migrant workers in often uncertain conditions, and remittances provide that lifeline of support to families back home.


What are remittances used for?

Sending money internationally through a cost-effective and secure process is important to many workers and families. Remittances are used to pay for basic needs and household items, they are used to pay for education, to pay for entrepreneurship, and to allow for family members who have been left at home to flourish. Over the past 20 years there has been a fivefold increase in the flow of remittances throughout the world, even during the toughest economic times such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
