===History of the Peace Corps in Ethiopia===
 
 
 
Peace Corps/Ethiopia is one of the oldest Peace Corps
 
programs. The first group of Peace Corps Volunteers arrived
 
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.
