ABCs of a Realistic African Diaspora Engagement

One of the first things that comes to the mind of most Africans living in Africa is to ask the diaspora to help them, forgetting that no one is helping the diaspora for free. In contrast, the first thing that enters the mind of most diasporas is not how to help Africa, but whether Africa knows why they have left the continent and what they are doing/facing abroad!

Although in the case of countries affected by brain drain the need of native consultants is more appealing, it is very hard for people living in the diaspora to offer such a service to their home countries. At the same time, many organizations have consulting openings, but they don’t know how or who to contact to get those jobs done. Sometimes, because of a lack of the right fit, many consultations are done by less qualified people.

The social, economic and psychological wounds of slavery have been passed on down through the generations; open wounds that remain raw and continue to fester. Between the 16th and 19th centuries some 15 million captured Africans were shipped to the Caribbean, Latin America and North America on 36,000 slaving voyages. Millions more perished on the long and tortuous boat trips from Africa to the Americas.
