Banking Association South Africa

The Banking Association South Africa is a non-profit industry body representing both local and foreign banks registered and operating in South Africa. The current membership of the Association stands at 43 member banks.


Launched in 2008, StarSaver™, previously known as Teach Children To Save South Africa™ was established as an answer to the call by National Treasury to advance financial wellness and capability of different parts of the people.

What We Do

Volunteer bankers and financial sector professionals offer one hour of their time to deliver a powerful savings lesson, engaging the learners to participate. 

The essence of the savings lesson is to have an interactive, educational and inspiring session that will leave behind a long lasting impression on the learner.

The overall aim is to kick-start the savings habit and to inspire learners to be lifelong savers.


How We Do It

The volunteers use their own work-based knowledge and skills to enhance the delivery of the savings lesson.

The earlier children learn about money, savings and investment, the better they fare with their personal finances during the course of their lives. 

These abilities help children and youth to comprehend the difference between earning, saving and spending, making them improved money managers, who are capable to budget and have improved money habits.
