In 2019, RNSWMNZ & Charitable Trust was established as a not-for-profit organization with the purpose of providing a safe haven where inner city youth participate in a comprehensive program of tennis and academic tutoring that promotes the physical, educational and Fincial Freedom necessary to prepare and empower them for leadership in their communities and success in their personal lives.

Our goal was to do everything with excellence, so we did things slowly but as well as we were able. As our credibility and reputation grew, we attracted our first community funding and eventually gained accreditation with Child Youth and Family Services (Ministry of Social Development). With funding from MSD and other Government and community organizations we were able to become established and fulfil our dream of being a useful social presence in the community of Auckland region and the wider New Zealand area and Worldwide.

We now have a strong team of professional counsellors and budget advisors. We also offer a number of life skills programs under the same project.

Our journey to this point has been challenging and exciting. We are still growing and changing to meet the needs in our community and our vision has not dimmed! We are enormously grateful to all those, and there have been many, who have supported us along the way and who will always be part of the RNSWMNZ & Charitable Trust story….

It wasn’t too many years ago that the RNSWMNZ & Charitable Trust earned its reputation as a tough Auckland, and Worldwide with many of the same problems faced by similar mostly urban, minority neighborhoods. We heard too much about crime, truancy, substance abuse, obesity, teen pregnancy, and academic failure. But all that is changing, and the Financial Freedom Program is playing a big part in the transformation.


There is a tremendous need, especially for high-risk youth in low-income neighborhoods, for programs that provide activities and support for children during the Educational Workshop hours and throughout the 10 Minutes a day, 30 Days to Financial Freedom Book reading program . the Children’s Defense Fund reported that violent crime by young people ages 10-17; children and teens in poor neighborhoods are struggling for direction and positive opportunities are needed to keep them safe and on-track to turn stress into strength with 30 Days To Financial Freedom Project.

The Budget Genius Difference

There are plenty of budgeting tools out there, from pencil-and-paper techniques to spreadsheet templates and even fancy apps. There are a lot of great things about these tools, but they have downsides too.

Many aren’t very flexible and don’t adjust to fit the unique aspects of your life. And they all require you to sit down and build your budget. That can be difficult, intimidating, and time consuming.

This is where 30 Days to Financial Freedom is different. With our program, you don’t ever have to do the hard work of building a budget. You simply answer one question every day, and the tool builds a budget for you. There’s no long work sessions and no math required.

Built for Your Life

The Budget Genius is built to accommodate the unique situations and challenges of your life. Do you have irregular income or uncommon expenses? The Budget Genius will help you plan for them seamlessly.

The Genius isn’t just a monthly budget builder. It helps you plan ahead for expenses coming later. And it creates emergency savings goals and a customized plan to pay off your debt. Best of all, the Budget Genius is built into the 30 Days to Financial Freedom course program.

Each day, you’ll get a short video tutorial that walks you through your budget question for the day. Most days, you’ll finish your budget work in just a few minutes.

How does the program work?

30 Days to Financial Freedom consists of a monthlong series of daily video lessons. Each day, you’ll get a devotional lesson focused on your heart, a practical lesson focused on your habits, and a demo of our Budget Genius tool. Altogether, the lessons take about 10 minutes a day.

How long does it take?

30 Days to Financial Freedom is designed as a monthlong program with a series of short daily lessons. Each day’s teaching is designed to take about 10 minutes. You’ll also spend a little bit of time answering one question each day in the Budget Genius tool.

How long does a membership last?

Forever. Your Lifetime Membership never expires. There are no subscriptions, renewals, or continual payments. You get full access to all course materials as long as you want it, so you can go back to any lesson as many times as you want.

If you choose our optional Coaching Plus Plan, you’ll get unlimited access to all the Freedom
Plan materials, plus three months of one-on-one sessions with a Freedom Coach. After that,
you can choose to continue your coaching sessions for an additional fee.

What if it takes longer than a month to finish?

No problem. 30 Days to Financial Freedom is designed to finish in as little as a month, but you’re welcome to work at your own pace. Your membership lasts forever, so you can take as much time as you want and go back to each lesson as many times as you need.
