The Anglo-Ethiopian Society was formed in 1948. The object of the Society is to foster knowledge of Ethiopian culture, history and way of life and to encourage friendship between the British and Ethiopian peoples. The Society is a non political organisation.
The Society pursues its object by:-
- affording opportunities for personal contacts and co-operation among people interested or likely to be interested in Ethiopian culture and the Ethiopian way of life;
- hosting conferences, lectures and social events;
- publishing a newsletter (News File) and Occasional Papers;
- establishing and maintaining contact with kindred organisations;
- engaging in any other activity which will further the object of the Society.
The Society possesses a library of books on Ethiopian subjects and these may be consulted by members.
The Society is completely independent and its principal income comes from the subscriptions of its members. An Executive Committee manages the affairs of the Society.
