Savings Month Activities

2021-11-12
During the month of October, Caixa developed several commemorative activities to mark World Savings Day | October 31st. After meeting the EBI schools in the municipality of Praia, on the island of Santiago, he met with students in the sixth year of schooling from schools in the municipalities of Porto Novo, Paúl and Ribeira Grande, to promote Financial Education in childhood. Likewise, he took the opportunity to address the issue with his collaborators on the islands of Santo Antão and São Vicente through an open conversation.

From 26 to 29 October, a Caixa team visited these two islands to develop a range of actions under the theme “Financial Education” with EBI employees and students.

The meetings aimed to raise awareness and encourage children to cultivate the teachings of financial education. The moments were marked by the launch of the book “A Poupança do Zito”, an exchange of experiences, games and dynamics related to the theme, as well as the delivery of safes in the shape of a piggy bank - a symbol of savings.

It was gratifying to be with these children and lay the foundations for them to be financially responsible adults.
