===History of the Peace Corps in Ethiopia===

[[Category:US cities]]
Peace Corps/Ethiopia is one of the oldest Peace Corps
+
</includeonly>
programs. The first group of Peace Corps Volunteers arrived
+
<noinclude>[[category:templates]]</noinclude>
in Ethiopia (including present-day Eritrea) in September
+
1962, with 279 secondary school teachers. Volunteers
+
worked in both secondary and vocational/technical schools,
+
with others working in the health, small business, rural
+
development, law, and agriculture sectors. From 1962 to 1977,
+
Peace Corps/Ethiopia was one of the largest Peace Corps
+
programs in the world. More than 3,000 Volunteers served in
+
the country before Peace Corps terminated the program in
+
1977 due to the unstable political situation.
+
 
+
In 1991, the Marxist regime in power since 1974 was
+
overthrown. The new government requested Peace Corps’
+
return and in July 1995, 25 Peace Corps Volunteers arrived
+
as secondary school English teachers. Hostilities between
+
Ethiopia and Eritrea erupted in 1999, forcing Peace Corps to
+
suspend its operations; the program was officially closed in
+
March 2000. In May 2002, Peace Corps received an invitation
+
from the government of Ethiopia to resume its program. After
+
a thorough assessment process, the program reopened with
+
the arrival of 43 health Volunteers in October 2007. Plans are
+
underway to initiate an environment program by September
+
of 2010.
+
 
+
===History and Future of Peace Corps Programming in Ethiopia===
+
 
+
The Peace Corps has been involved in almost every facet
+
of Ethiopia’s development over the past decades, making
+
contributions in the fields of education, health, rural
+
development, and small business development. Peace Corps’
+
current program focuses on HIV/AIDS. Volunteers collaborate
+
with Ethiopian counterparts to support the government of
+
Ethiopia’s strategy to create and strengthen community- and
+
family-centered HIV/AIDS prevention, care, and support
+
models in the Amhara, Oromiya, Tigray, and Southern Nations
+
regions. Placements will be in health centers, community based
+
organizations, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs)
+
and HIV/AIDS resource centers. Peace Corps plans to expand
+
into the environment sector by September 2010. Environment
+
Volunteers will collaborate with Ethiopian counterparts to
+
support the government of Ethiopia’s strategy to protect
+
its bio-diversity and promote effective and sustainable
+
management of its natural resources.
