Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) is the epitome of our national integrity and zest for development. It’s iconic in a way as it rightly symbolizes our aspirations. We Ethiopians are emotionally attached with its progress, so having agreed for second round of contribution, AMU is sending a group of people to visit its site, said AMU President, Dr Feleke Woldeyes.

We have to supply educational materials to our students, though we have libraries but demands to own books are rising every day. Therefore, to cater to the needs of those students want to buy books, this book store is a step further; and AMU will provide them at a fare price, said Arba Minch University President, Dr Feleke Woldeyes.

Dr Feleke said this after inaugurating a book store in the Main Campus premises on February 10, 2014. This book store has been started with a donation from one of the UK-based NGOs called - TCS.
