The same principle of self-reliance that paved the way to Eritrea’s national independence prevails today. Eritrea will disembark from the cradle of spoon-feeding and fend for itself. It will plant its feet on solid ground and carry its own weight and will stride ahead and blaze its own path to economic development.

Achieving independence was a long and very unforgiving path. It was the result of the ultimate sacrifice paid by 65,000 gallant citizens who laid their lives for their country without any reservation. These heroes paid the most precious possession they had: their life. They paid it for the sake of the future of the nation and future generations. Eternal glory to their memory!

Water is life. As such Eritrea exerting a lot of effort to secure it. It is also the first step in its desire to secure food. To this the country is busy building big and small dams, micro-dams, reservoirs and check-dams. For example according to some estimates: the amount of concrete cement and iron bars consumed in the Teqera (Adi Halo) dam is enough to build three times the size of the Sembel residential complex in Asmara. In other words, Asmara would would have one hundred, thirty story high rises. But water is life and the Government of Eritrea is starting with water. Below are two videos that show this effort.
