Imagine you are going about your day-to-day activities when suddenly tragedy strikes. This is what happened to Sayed Khan, a 31-year-old housekeeping staff member in my society, passed away in a car accident, leaving his family in financial distress.
Witnessing the impact of his untimely death on his loved ones moved me deeply, and I began researching ways to help. This led me to discover government schemes that could provide financial support in such situations, but I realized that many people, especially those in similar positions as Sayed's family, were not aware of them.
Thus began my journey to educate people about personal finance and empower them to make informed decisions. And thus, Invest the Change was born. Our mission is to create a financially educated and prepared society where tragedies like Sayed's can be faced with financial stability and security.
The story of Invest the Change is a great example of how financial literacy and education can empower individuals to take control of their finances and create a more financially prepared society. Unfortunately, tragedies like the one that impacted Sayed Khan's family are all too common in India, and they often leave families in financial distress. This is especially true for women who may not have been involved in financial decision-making during their marriage and are left vulnerable after their husband's passing.
