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.
May 24, 1991, a sacred day in the annals of Eritrean history, symbolizes the determination that no one or nothing can stop this young nation from rising again-- no matter how daunting the challenges are. It is also a sacred day in the history of all those who rise, in the face of overwhelming odds, to determine their own destiny and defend their basic rights. This is a celebration of the triumph of the human spirit in the quest for freedom against all odds. This day embodies what the essence of Eritrea represents: the spirit of unflinching determination, unwavering dedication and, when necessary, unyielding and principled defiance. However, May 24 is also a day of renewal, a day of recommitment to ensure the realization of the promise enshrined in the spark that launched the armed struggle on September 1, 1961, and the solemn pledge given to those who made the ultimate sacrifice so that the Eritrean people can determine their own destiny and enjoy what May 24 represents.
