    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!

    How to Engage the Global Diaspora in Consulting Opportunities with their Country of Origin...

    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.

Sometimes, because of a lack of the right fit, many consultations are done by less qualified people.
