The majority of the Boro, Shinasha peoples are unable to read currently. Their livelihood is based on farming and some are merchants.
Their culture is based on the rule of respect between the youngsters and elder, their way of accepting strangers, their feeding style, their values of dress and marriage. Diginity between the clans and for the others was an attribute of their beliefs.
Almost all Boro Shinasha are followers of Christianity and nearly all are Orthodox Tewahido.
