I&M Bank Rwanda yesterday hosted students of New Vision High School at its headquarters in Kigali where students were encouraged on the culture of saving.
The visit was part of "The global Money Week", a global event that took place from 27th up to 30th March 2017. The week was organized under the theme ‘Learn, Save and Earn’.
I&M Bank Rwanda is a sponsor of this global, annual event that raises awareness on saving culture among the youth.
The warm welcome to students was part of the bank’s initiative of taking the youth through banking services and encouraging them on saving culture.
The Global Money Week is celebrated annually across the entire globe organized by AIESEC (International Association of Students in Economics and Business).
It was initiated by Child & Youth Finance International (CYFI), a global movement with the goal of empowering the youth in finance.
Sophie Nice, a senior six student in the option of History, Economics and Literature (HEL) at New Vision HighSchool described the visit as a very constructive one as she learnt a lot from the study trip.
"It wasn’t my first time hearing the culture of saving, but it was my first time absorbing the enormity of what it actually meant. On my behalf, I would like to thank I&M Bank and AIESEC for this opportunity. I also advice parents and teachers to embrace and instill this culture among the younger generation," said Sophie.
The Country Director of AIESEC in Rwanda, Deborah Claire Ingabire said that working hand in hand with the Rwandan community will make the sensitization on saving culture among Rwandan youth easier.
