Pictures from Mr Adane Sewhunegn – Three girls studying at Mizan Aman Health College

( About the pictures: )
The one on my left is from Maji District Maji town speaking Dizi … Maji town is 205 km South east of Mizan town. She is borne from her mother of Dizi orgin …

All of them speak Amharic but their mother tongue is Dizi for the two faire girls and Surma for the middle. They also talk little of Surma and Dizi vice versa, but do not speak Bench. Bench is the surrounding very near to Mizan and is the center of the Zone without problem …

The one next to my right is totally from Surma, she come from Kibish town 187km South West of Mizan town, she doesn’t have a father, neither she knows him, but both her parents are from Surma origin …

The last student is from Jeba town, Bero District (Woreda), 149km South west of Mizan town. She is borne from a descendant family originally from Wollo (Amhara) some 40 years ago and now completely leading family as if origin of the locality …

I also asked them their willingness if they are going to be forced to serve more than two years without getting shift to a town with better opportunities, they fully and happily agreed to serve their community with no hesitation …

Honestly they told me that either they would have started a normal life like their parents, especially the girl from Surma, (Middle-black) and others could rather start giving free service teaching their community for the time being, which eventually end up in marriage and assimilated to the community like their parents …

… telling their commitment to serve their community in one of the golden professions they really got the chance and a profession they have for years wanted to join …
the bill board is about this: it’s English equivalent is: ‘No single mother should die of giving birth’ …
… it is not my thinking (to take me here …), but of the students; that was the one that surprised me most …
