Social mobility was very important to the conquered citizens because it allowed them to move up in ranking in their new empire. The citizens could go through the ranks and become an important part in the empire 's government. Creating wealth and limiting tax were both helpful to the empire greatly, and go into play with each other. The Ottomans helped open up vendors to a trade route that went through the Mediterranean Sea, allowing them to make more money. They also didn’t have to pay an enormous amount of tax, which caused them to make more profit.

Her accomplishments during her rule were great, especially opening up trade routes and making expeditions to places such as Punt. These decisions would make Egypt even stronger, and would help them in the long run.

The Ethiopian Civil War had begun with a military coup d’état against Emperor Haile Selassie in 1974 and lasted until 1991 when the Ethiopian People's Revolutionary Democratic Front (EPRDF) overthrew the government.This uprising of the people wasn’t unexpected as one would think since another coup attempt had occurred in 1960, which Emperor Haile suppressed by claiming to step up with the reform policies. Those promises failed, and the people started to revolt against the emperor, and after a wave of demonstrations, mutinies, and uprisings they succeeded in overthrowing him. There were many reasons which made the people of Ethiopia want to revolt against their Emperor such as his lack of attempts to modernize the country, address deep social
In the famous battle of Adwa in 1896, one hundred thousand Ethiopian troops confronted the Italians and inflicted a decisive defeat. Thereafter, Ethiopia was able to maintain its independence for much of the colonial period, except for a brief interlude of Italian oversight between 1936 and
Imperialism obviously caused the problems all throughout the 1870 to 1914, but it also caused some good things. Africa and India were the places where the basic necessities were not people’s thing. Imperialism helped by giving the basic necessities, improving colonies sanitation, and education. People were taught basic hygiene habits, cleanliness and importance of studies in Africa and India. Building hospitals, schools, and factories helped in creating more jobs for the people were the ways of making countries civilized.
This statement illustrates England 's point of view towards imperialism and also provides their reasons for imperializing to Africa. They believed that their own culture and way of life was the best and it would be better if more people of English culture were spread across the world. Following their need to be the best nation, came their need to imperialize and gain more power, which was the cause why the Africans were hurt, not only physical, but also their culture killed and had an everlasting burden placed on them all. In the text, "The Black Man 's Burden," by Edward Morel in 1903, it states, "In its permanence resides its fatal consequences. It kills not only the body merely, but the soul.

Although food aid is a standard response to transitory food insecurity (e.g. drought emergencies), in Ethiopia it has become an institutionalised response to chronic food insecurity as well. Annual food aid deliveries to Ethiopia since 1980 have varied from 200,000 to 1,200,000 metric tons. The number of ‘needy’ Ethiopians between 1980 and 1995 ranged from 2.5 million (1987) to 7.85 million (1992), and in the current drought emergency it stands at 7.7 million. Food aid deliveries to Ethiopia averaged 11% of national cereals production - or 12kg per capita - between 1985 and 1995, peaking at 26% in famine years (Clay et al.
These are some of the important factors contributing in general to the suffering of children in Ethiopia. A quarter of the population lives on less than $1.25 per day (UNDP 2011), and “87.3 percent of the population suffers multiple deprivations while an additional 6.8 percent are vulnerable to multiple deprivations” (UNDP 2013). “Almost half the population is considered undernourished, and the average life expectancy is only 48 years”. Most people living under these severe conditions are trapped in a cycle of poverty (UNDP 2011). Poverty is a major factor in this regard and accounts for close to 70 percent of the factors that cause streetism in Ethiopia.
