Saving : Saving is longest and oldest problem of Ethiopians; It is not exaggeration to say saving is a new concept for the majority of Ethiopians.

It seems that the long last political instability of the nation, deep rooted poverty and hand to mouth life of the people makes the majority of the people ignorant for saving. Economical speaking, it is nothing exciting  than to see children who are very concerned to save money. Thanks to Mr. Walter, children have gained important practical knowledge of how to save and use money. Therefore now, all children start to save money and even develop the practical knowledge of wise use of money. And sharing their own money to the poor.
