Life is all about making choices. Choices that affect not only you, but future generations too. To show the importance of being financially prepared, we created Lives of Grace – an interactive drama series on Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp. Written by renowned South African scriptwriter Bongi Ndaba and starring local actress Zola Nombona, we told the story through intimate voice notes and text messages from Grace – a woman from a humble background with huge potential.
As Grace’s oldest and most trusted friend, we asked you to follow her life story over five episodes. Each episode ended by asking the audience to help her make a major life decision. A decision that would shape her fate in the next episode, which jumped forward ten years in her life. Some paths led to success and happiness, and others to heartache and lasting financial burdens. But all of them emphasised the importance of being financially prepared.
