Ethiopia XVI   1971–73

The following Peace Corps Volunteers trained in the summer of 1971 for Ethiopia XVI. Members of the group were: vocational education teachers and taught in teacher training schools and industrial arts schools; rural development Volunteers; smallpox eradication Volunteers; and small business Volunteers.

Thanks to Richard A. Wilson for writing about a group of families within the XVIs:

    The family group I trained with stayed in Addis Ababa throughout the training, I believe, so the children would be close to medical aid if needed. I believe we were the first families in country, as it was a new program, using families. (Note: The names of the children whose parents served in this group are listed following their parents names.)

Thanks to Jane Sweeney who shared her training book for this group. It was an invaluable aid in trying to sort out this group.
