Addis Ababa, October 8, 2020 (FBC) –Ethiopia’s Minister of Education, Dr Getahun Mekuria, has held a video conference meeting with Baroness Sugg, UK’s Minister for Foreign Dev’t Affairs and Special Envoy for Girls’ Education.
During the meeting, Sugg pledged UK’s continued support to inclusive education in Ethiopia, particularly for girls in rural areas and at refugee camps.
Expressing his belief that educated parents will send their children to school, Dr Getahun said works are underway to launch adult education in a new system.
