Fonofale is a visual representation of Pasifika values and beliefs.

It’s relevant because we can use our knowledge of the Fonofale to enhance our financial mentoring.

Understanding Fonofale will help create an environment that is culturally safe for Pasifika learners.

Would like a lot more about dealing with tithing and other family obligations as the clients tell us they are trapped in this cycle.

The course was very easy to understand. I would like to know more about tithing as this seems to be an area of concern especially where incomes cannot support it.
