  • Description

    Some 850 more participants in Ethiopia's newly launched Development Through Co-operation Campaign left the capital of Addis Ababa on Saturday (18 January) for 15 rural centres in the country's northwest and southwest regions.

    It was the fourth -- and by far the largest -- contingent of students to join the development programme since it was officially opened last 21 December with a Chinese-style parade of 20,000 uniformed students in Addis Ababa.

    The programme provides for students, graduate and teachers to go out into the countryside to teach the backward rural population in a massive campaign scheduled to last nine months.

    It combines a literacy drive with teaching improved farm methods and into health care -- but one of its principal goals is to explain to the rural population the socialist aims of the ruling Military Council.
