Miss Deborah in Ethiopia

  1. 1. My name is Miss Deborah and I am living in Ethiopia. I am a Peace Corps Volunteer!
  2. 2. I live with Henok and Beruk Dereje. Henok is 14 years old and Beruk is 5 years old.
  3. 3. This is Beruk and his mom. He goes to Preschool and everyday he wears his green uniform. He is in the kitchen eating his favorite food: firfir! Firfir is a special bread called injera mixed with spices. Everyone in Ethiopia eats with their right hand.
  4. 4. This is Henok. He is wearing his uniform. Before school Henok sits in the kitchen to review his homework. Students only go to school for half day, either in the morning or the afternoon. When they are not at school they have to help their families with cooking, cleaning, cutting wood, carrying water, or watching younger brothers and sisters.
  5. 5. This is Henok’s English homework. Amharic is Henok’s first language and English is his second language. Starting in eighth grade all the schooling in Ethiopia is in English.
  6. 6. For ninth grade students go to Injibara Secondary School. This is Henok’s school. It is called Bahunk Primary School. There are students from first grade to eighth grade at this school.
  7. 7. These fourth grade students are lined up for the Flag Ceremony. Every morning the students say the Ethiopian pledge of allegiance and hear the morning announcements. Today they do not have to wear a uniform!
