Helping Students

Finito is committed to helping young people into work, and we have no desire to turn away students simply because they cannot afford our fees. We believe that proper career guidance and job-seeking advice should be available to everyone, and we have connections with many donors who share that view and are willing to sponsor students who wish to access our tutoring programmes.

As an entrepreneur, philanthropist and thought leader, I have always felt a burden of responsibility to help champion and inspire the next generation. We have long supported young people to increase their employment chances across the world and at this time, we are proud to support Finito for the outstanding work it does in facilitating opportunities for young people.”
