Ethiopian Children

A keen interest in education among children is immediately obvious to any visitor to Ethiopia. While many youths will ask for money and sweets, at least an equal number will beg for pens and notebooks. Children can often be seen walking to and from school clutching composition books that may be battered but are highly valued nonetheless.--Marjorie Coeyman
