dc.descriptionThere are two typewritten captions on the reverse. The first reads: 'The British Government is carrying out a successful and interesting experiment in Nigeria, to beat that great menace to African life, Sleeping Sickness. The town of Anchau, centre of the experiment is in the middle of an area ravaged by the disease-carrying Tsetse fly, and the scheme, which will be finished in 1947, has brought a new way of life to many Africans. To combat the Tsetse Fly, is a long process; not only have the African villagers to be educated to a better way of life from the hygiene viewpoint, but, land clearance must be undertaken, whole sections of the community must be moved from the crowded area, and new agricultural methods must be introduced. To do this in many cases involved reading and writing classes for adult villagers. All this work has had to be done by a depleted staff of two instead of the ten Control Officers judged necessary for the job before the war, a District Officer, two entymologists and a well-sinking foreman are carrying the scheme through. When it is finished it will provide a pattern for rural development in Africa'. The second caption reads: 'The Sleeping Sickness Service fully realises that half the battle against disease and ignorance is literacy. Here is a class in progress in the Muslim Elementary School at Takalafiya'. The image is a British Official photograph (Crown Copyright Reserved) issued under the general title 'Sleeping sickness experiment is pattern for progress in rural Africa'.en_GB
