Haile Selassie I selected speeches on Hope For Education in Ethiopia Nov 2, 1948
Haile Selassie I, the selected speeches of H.I.M on “Hope For Education in Ethiopia”. Haile Selassie I firmly believed that education was key and vital for any man or nations success.
Therefore, He made countless speeches on the topic of Education, and today we shall take a look on His speech for the “Hope For Education in Ethiopia”.
It is our duty of the faith of RasTafari to share with you the knowledge of HIM. We must seek knowledge and wisdom always and to never stop from learning.
Educate yourself always in truth and righteousness, let therefore the words of Haile Selassie I be an inspiration unto you. Not only for yourself but for all man to share in the goodness of HIM.
Knowledge paves the way to love, and love in its turn fosters understanding, and leads one along the path of great common achievements.
HOPE FOR EDUCATION
…We will continue by speaking of Our efforts in the development and extension of education in Ethiopia. As We informed you before,
among Ethiopia’s long-range programmes is that embracing the youth of the Empire. It is Our constant solicitude that Ethiopia’s youth be brought up and educated in order to render service to Ethiopia.
In order to retain her proper and rightful place, Ethiopia’s sole means is education, through which she will be able to assist herself,
maintain her independence, take an active and important part in world affairs and be a benefit both to herself and to others.
We are satisfied with the efforts made and with the time spent in the education of Ethiopia’s youth.
The present generation’s thirst and earnest desire for education, as well as their easy adaptability to modern culture and training
and their spirit of progress encourage Us to redouble Our efforts toward the fulfilment of Our aims.
We have great pride in Our people and equally in the future generations. We are able thus to wait hopefully for the young
Ethiopian graduates from the
Universities of the world who will return home in the near future to do service to their country….
