The Strategic War that is Killing Africa and its Diaspora



Through my experience dealing with diasporas across the globe (e.g. https://www.DiasporaEngager.com/map), I have learned something very shocking about Africa and America that I would like to share with you today. I noticed that some diaspora groups and countries are very connected and as tightly knit as a sweater. When I realized that these groups were successful in helping their diaspora and home country, I thought to myself: why isn’t this the case for Africa?

 

For many years, I used to think that the African leaders, politicians, and intellectuals were the main cause of the African problem. In 2008, I  published a book in France titled “La Faillite des Cadres et Intellectuels Africains (The Failure of the African Intellectuals). After being recently involved in several diaspora initiatives, I realized that what causes the African leaders to cling to power and ignore their own intellectuals who, in the end, are leaving Africa to go abroad, is also causing the African Diaspora to fight among each other, and wanting to raise themselves above each other in a way that most of the African diaspora initiatives are not in sync. The Africans tend to always put themselves first, and in the process, they discourage and put down anyone who may dare to do something similar. While other nations are fighting the ideologies that should free Africa, the Africans themselves keep creating and worsening divisions they have been subjected to by colonial powers. African efforts lack coordination and cooperation at many levels. The African Diaspora and African leaders are not ready to engage with one another in a realistic way that can overcome 21st century global mindsets and customs that still try to hold back the Black community, despite having a Black President at the White House.

 

The mentality that caused the Europeans to go to Africa to divide it, to catch our grandfathers and force them into slavery (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlantic_slave_trade), is sadly still within many of our own African leaders and the African Diaspora. That evil spirit is causing many Africans to sabotage one another, and to refuse to collaborate with or help each other. That is why Africa is unable to unite and use its rich lands and resources to develop. I found it fascinating that some Africans born in Africa do not even consider African Americans (descendants of former slaves) to be a part of the African diaspora. Sometimes, I am shocked that while talking about race in America, there is a difference between African, Black, African American, Afrodescendant, and Negro. Yet, they are the same people who are struggling to free their brothers and sisters from some historical strongholds.

 

During the building of the global diaspora database (www.DiasporaEngager.com/directory and https://www.DiasporaEngager.com/map), I engaged with several diaspora associations across the globe. I noticed that there are many African diaspora clubs. The Africans gather themselves in groups that discuss diverse forms of doctrines without truly thinking about how to help others even their own people. In those diaspora groups or networks, some Africans surround themselves with people who can help them to find a piece of the pie and eat it together. After being involved in decision making at the highest level, I found it amazing that in America, many of the African Diaspora’s initiatives by Africans from Africa are not welcomed by some leaders in the African American communities (https://www.diasporaengager.com/American), and vice versa. The Africans need to learn to work more cooperatively and to stop to be victims of their past historical wounds. The African Diasporas are so dispersed and divided that IF they cannot learn HOW to better work with one another in the midst of their divergences and geographical constraints, they can never sustainably improve their situation.

 

There is hope for Africa

An African Market.

The most developed countries do NOT like each other, BUT they know how to meet in their clubs of G7, G10, G20, Gxyz, etc. to work together and push their agenda forward. While the African Nations are trying hard to be included in these clubs, they have refused for more than 50 years to unite themselves to form a realistic African Union. Similarly, some African leaders tend to reject the potential of their diaspora intellectuals in order to focus on their own selfish agendas that help them acquire money; create projects and/or get consulting fees, or keep their power until they die on their throne before their children take over by picking up the leadership heritage. Though certain African Leaders cite the western countries as the root of their poverty, they crush their own people with policies, sometimes in the name of democracy that some people think is sufficient to develop Africa https://DiasporaEngager.com/extPage/DemocracyGovernance!

 

Likewise, the African diasporas “ignore” one another just as some developed countries technically overlook Africa’s best interests. For instance, Benin Republic—my country of origin—is among the smallest countries in the world. We have more than 150 political parties in Benin and there are several diaspora associations from Benin in America; however, they are NOT working together. Everybody wants to be the Boss and at the same time some western powers have put Africa in a big box that it is struggling to escape. This backward mentality is everywhere amongst most African nations and diasporas. As if this mentality is not enough, the African leaders are not listening to the intellectuals they have at their own universities. Indeed, they have chased away many professionals https://www.diasporaengager.com/BrainDrain and imprisoned those they do not like. Africa claims that it wants to reverse the brain drain; however, it forgets that the migration of these brains is feeding the economy and the technology of western countries that Africa asks to fund the African projects where money is spoiled and wasted as if it was the sand of the seashore. Are the Africans implying that the World Bank was right when it argued for many years that Africa does not need University Intellectuals? For instance, the African Leaders need to understand that listening to their own intellectuals and investing in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics … must be the first priority in their budget. Otherwise, we are just programming and prolonging poverty in Africa, although some people use statistics to show that Africa is prospering. Money-oriented conferences organized on behalf of Africa will not improve the African situation. Indeed, if we cannot change the mentality of the African Leaders, we cannot win this battle. African leaders need to follow the example of the African intellectuals who are making positive difference such as Prof Brice Sinsin (http://www.BriceSinsin.com)

 

Furthermore, we need to be more honest with Africa and with one another. For instance, members of the African Diasporas (https://www.diasporaengager.com/Africa) are very smart, but NOT very rich. Yet, when they go to Africa, they behave as if they are billionaires abroad. This behavior ignites excitement and adventure in the minds of talented Africans, who then leave Africa only to realize that life abroad is not always easy, nor the heaven that some people describe. We need to start being honest with our people in Africa. When we want to talk about African Diaspora Engagement, let’s not think too much about MONEY, and let’s refrain from turning to BIG financial institutions for funding. Money has never been Africa’s problem and it will never be the solution. If the African Diaspora can help one another without spreading abroad their backward mentality—which is not different from the mindset of the nations that try to oppress them—, I (www.RolandHolou.com) believe we can better forge strong coalitions that can help free Africa, the poor, the needy, and the afflicted from being controlled by the power of other nations who are trying to develop themselves as well.

 

Some people may wonder why I am speaking as if I hate Africa. The fact of the matter is that I love Africa very much and I still have brothers and sisters on the Black continent who cannot even comprehend the reality of life abroad even if I risk my life to tell them the truth. I was born and raised in the Benin Republic (West Africa) before I moved to the USA many years ago. I am privileged to have tasted life in Africa before migrating to the USA, where I got my PhD in Plant, Insect and Microbial Sciences. I have been working and publishing books and articles about Africa for more than 15 years. It is my love for Africa and the global diaspora that caused me to create DiasporaEngager, the International Diaspora Engagement Platform www.DiasporaEngager.com. Today, I am pleased to inform you that the platform is growing quickly and is being used in many countries. We also completed the most comprehensive diaspora database and diaspora map, which anyone can access by creating a free account at www.DiasporaEngager.com/miniRegister and then visit at https://diasporaengager.com/map/. DiasporaEngager is helping people and nations to address some of the problems mentioned above http://diasporasnews.com/how-does-diasporaengager-help-individuals-organizations-and-nations/.

Why does Africa Weep and Deteriorate? Real Causes and Solutions to African Impoverishment



After decades of independence, economic development in African countries continues to lag behind. However, several models and ideologies of development have been applied. Are these ideologies and models inadequate in Africa’s specific case or are the real causes of Africa’s failures due to different factors? Considering the complex process of development, the answer to this question is not simple. In trying to find the real solution to the problem, the importance of identifying the source of poverty in Africa is very relevant.

 

In his latest book (A continent in tears: The origin of Africa’s collapse and how to reverse it), Dr Roland Holou thoroughly analyzed the real evils that undermine development in African countries. After reviewing the literature on Africa’s development and the misconduct of African officials, the importance of human resource and knowledge in the process of Africa’s development has been revealed. The in-depth analysis focused on the failures of the education systems, lack of thought, problems with intelligence and creativity, scientific research, negativity, rote learning (mechanically memorizing information without truly learning how to apply it), corruption, the mismanagement of Africa’s natural resources, reproduction, witchcraft, politics, trade unionism, ignorance, the African mentality, accountability, the awareness of Africans, corruption of foreign powers, the brain drain, and so on. Examples of elites that Africa needs are included as well.

 

Why does Africa Weep and Deteriorate?

Why does Africa Weep and Deteriorate?

Indeed, Africa suffers from an intellectual, demographic, and spiritual crisis. The decline of Africa is due not only to its poor management and governance, but also to the acts of evil inflicted upon the continent. From households to the very top of the state, Africans are faced with major challenges. Many Africans are afraid to think or do not want to think; many are afraid to speak, do not want to speak, or cannot speak; many are afraid to act or do not want to act; many leaders are corrupt and/or do not want to learn; many have knowledge but do not want to or cannot apply their knowledge; many religious figures are so attached to narrow visions that they have disregarded the management of cities and politics. Above all else, intellectuals are often spurned by those in charge. When certain individuals want to contribute to society or become something, they are suppressed and rejected. Many skills are scorned; great minds are rarely encouraged or heard. Though several politicians do have some skilled knowledge, recognized experts and skilled workers generally do not want to get involved in politics.

When dictators come to power, they do as they please; when politicians have power, they hardly listen to skilled workers; when skilled workers take power, they act as if everything is technical. Moreover, radical trade unionism and political opposition are destroying Africa. Many do not want to contribute to successful initiatives, preferring instead to advance their own interests. What’s worse is the erroneous African mentality that makes development and progress impossible. While skilled, able workers who could make a difference are out of work, lazy and unqualified individuals are promoted to important positions by their relatives in power. Meanwhile, the expenses of the “great” have robbed Africa of the little that is available, all to the detriment of the poor, “innocent” farmers who are dying under the afternoon sun. With the help of foreign powers and politicians, African officials have effectively beaten Africa down.

 

Moreover, in many education systems, diplomas are not always symbols of knowledge that will lead to positive action toward development. Indeed, Africans distribute and collect many useless degrees. Many graduates claim to be educated when in reality their credentials are a sham. Africa trains too many scholars—parrots whose heads are filled with useless theories and words—who are unproductive and ultimately do not contribute anything of value to society. There are very few exceptions to this rule. Meanwhile, uncontrolled reproduction is enhancing poverty and other problems pertaining to underdevelopment at a faster rate than preexisting problems can be solved. Indeed, polygamy and certain sexual perversions not only contribute to underdevelopment in Africa, but also to the culture of African destitution.

 

Additionally, African intellectuals are under the influence of spiritual factions that often impede efforts toward development. Unfortunately, the classic debates surrounding underdevelopment in Africa have always ignored the spiritual dimension of the problem. Undoubtedly, developed countries had advantages and other assets that aided them in their growth. These countries have had their Enlightenment period; great minds have worked to put these nations on the right path. Today, Africa’s best minds are afraid to even remain on the continent. Due to this massive brain drain, there are real problems pertaining to coordination, awareness, accountability, and intelligent, rational application of development strategies in African nations.

 

Real Causes and Solutions to African Impoverishment

Real Causes and Solutions to African Impoverishment

In an attempt to find a lasting solution to the impoverishment of Africa and to put the continent on the path to prosperity, Dr. Roland Holou (www.RolandHolou.com) has suggested pertinent and practical reforms in his book that should be initiated. This book provides anyone who is concerned with development in Africa valuable information and instruction on how to take action. The ideas proposed in this book could be applied to other continents as well, as these same issues occur outside of Africa.

 

Dual citizen of the USA and Benin Republic, Dr. Roland Holou has a doctorate in plant sciences, entomology, and microbiology. He is an agricultural engineer and a specialist in environmental development and management. He also holds a diploma in Rural Development and is the Founder and CEO of DiasporaEngager (www.DiasporaEngager.com), the world’s #1 diaspora engagement platform.

Biographie de Sinsin Augustin Brice: L’incontestable contemporain réformateur Africain de l’UAC Bénin



Au temps des philosophes antiques, l’Afrique était le centre du savoir. Ai-je besoin de vous rappeler la place des penseurs Africains dans l’histoire de la science ? De nos jours, un autre vent scientifique, réformateur et développeur est en train de souffler au Bénin, le quartier latin de l’Afrique. La biographie du leader, Brice Augustin Sinsin (www.BriceSinsin.com) capitalise les faits se rapportant à ce vent réformateur qui est applaudi des 4 coins du globe.

 

Biography of Brice Sinsin

Biographie de Brice Augustin Sinsin : Vie, succès, et secrets d’un intellectuel et développeur Africain

Pourquoi Dr Ir. Roland Holou a-t-il décidé faire la biographie du Prof. Brice Sinsin? Prof. Guy Apollinaire Mensah repondit à cette question dans la préface du livre en soulignant que « Dr Holou veut faire découvrir au lecteur toutes les facettes du parcours magistral et majestueux de ce Professeur hors pair qui devient un modèle que la génération montante et de relève est invitée à imiter et chercher à surpasser ». Dans cette biographie, l’auteur ne conduit pas le lecteur dans un labyrinthe de la vie de Prof. Sinsin, mais il lui souligne et lui montre plutôt comment un homme, un scientifique et un vrai passionné peut se tracer une ligne de conduite et se doter de principe afin de surmonter tous les obstacles jonchant son chemin en se remettant tout temps en cause pour atteindre son but et obtenir la satisfaction et le réconfort moral du travail bien accompli.

 

Sinsin Augustin Brice est venu au monde le 03 mars 1959 à Djidja, à la veille de l’indépendance du Dahomey qui, plus tard, devint «République Populaire du Bénin» sous le règne du Président Mathieu Kérékou, puis «République du Bénin» avec l’arrivée du Renouveau Démocratique. Le lecteur de cette biographie saura que Prof. Sinsin est reconnu comme celui qui 1) aime lire et respecter les hommes et les normes sociales, 2) aime rendre compte des ressources à lui allouer, 3) aime écouter son prochain pour pouvoir bien l’aider, 4) veille sur ces principes dans une simplicité et une ouverture d’esprit avérées, 5) aime la culture du travail, de la confiance et de la libéralité, 6) dédaigne les amateurs des problèmes, 7) déteste le gain facile, 8) aime bien payer ses ouvriers et collaborateurs, 9) a trop œuvré pour la promotion des bras valides, 10) adore la collaboration avec les autres et le travail en équipe, 11) a formé une kyrielle de cadres pour le développement de nombreux pays, 12) est l’un des rares cerveaux ayant consacré leur vie à protéger et à valoriser les ressources naturelles (végétaux et animaux sauvages) et les humains …

 

PrixParis3

L’un des prix internationaux de l’UAC lors du mandat du recteur Brice Sinsin. Le leadership averé de Prof Sinsin a rapporté plus de 12 prix internationaux à l’Université d’Abomey Calavi …

Le temps manquerait s’il fallait énumérer le nombre de dossiers et de cadres que le Prof Sinsin a défendus et promus. Les Béninois sont très intelligents certes, mais s’ils décident d’employer leur intelligence pour vous nuire, vous êtes grillés. Ai-je besoin de vous rappeler ce que disait le célèbre philosophe français Emmanuel Mounier bien avant les indépendances du Dahomey (actuel Bénin) en 1960 : « Le Dahomey est le quartier latin de l’Afrique. Mais cet intellectualisme fait de méchanceté et de mesquinerie est de nature à retarder le développement du pays». Sans l’intervention et la libéralité du Prof Sinsin A. Brice, plusieurs cadres Béninois seraient bloqués par ce que Maître Robert Dossou qualifie de ‘‘Béninoiserie’’, ce jeu de blocage des uns et des autres bien reconnu à certains méchants génies Béninois qui aiment aussi compliquer les choses avec la sorcellerie, le Vodou et bien d’autres forces spirituelles que je ne saurais vraiment expliquer dans l’espace de cette biographie. Malgré ces menaces et actions parfois occultes, le professeur Sinsin a toujours le souci de voir ses étudiants réussir.

 

Cette biographie explique comment cet Africain fonctionne sur la base de passions et principes qui cachent le code de sa réussite que beaucoup cherchent à imiter sans vouloir payer le prix. Il propose aussi des stratégies pour réformer la démocratie et les constitutions africaines en vue de les adapter aux besoins du peuple africain, tirer leçons des systèmes de chefferies traditionnelles en Afrique, faire des pays africains des États-Nations, reformer la politique en Afrique et la formation des diplomates Africains. L’auteur termine cet ouvrage par une conclusion critique et une prière fervente.

 

L’auteur de cette biographie, Dr Roland Holou, est un citoyen Américain et Béninois, scientifique, écrivain, businessman, développeur, et consultant international. Roland a obtenu un doctorat en sciences végétales, entomologie et microbiologie aux États-Unis. Il est récipiendaire de plusieurs prix et titres honorifiques dont: “Top Ranked U.S. Executive Award”, “Who’s Who in the World”, “Who’s Who in America”.

ABCs of a Realistic African Diaspora Engagement



Almost every African country is trying to engage with its diaspora. However, in general, when it comes to how to convince the African diaspora to work with their country of origin, most of the methods used are not working. 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!

 

Do I need to underline that many African immigrants have left the Black Continent because they were chased away by some leaders and sorcerers who, today, are begging them to invest back home? What can’t I say about the massive and forced migration of Africans to America during one of the darkest and wicked ages of human history a few centuries ago? I even wonder how many people realize that the largest African diaspora population is in Brazil! Most Africans leaders are not trying to better know and understand their diaspora before asking them to come invest their money in Africa. Sometimes, I even wonder how many African Professionals in the Diaspora are richer than the African leaders who are begging them for money. Worst, some African leaders act as if their diaspora have forgotten the wounds they have suffered in Africa before finding a way to flee the continent of Kwame Nkrumah. Undoubtedly, a lot of basic first steps needs to be addressed in order to start aligning the mentality of Africa with that of its diaspora. Otherwise, the synergistic coalition needed for African Diaspora Engagement (www.DiasporaEngager.com/Africa) will continue lacking!

 

The migration of the diasporas from their home country to their new country of residence is a kind of “divorce or break up” with their roots. Some Africans have had some bad experiences with their own people that they do not even want to reverse their “divorce” with the continent of Nelson Mandela and of Prof Brice Sinsin. Other immigrants have been highly afflicted by the people in their home country that they do not want to hear any request coming from them. No intelligible man dates a woman by starting to ask about anything that is supposed to be last. Moreover, no reasonable man can win back his ex-wife or ex-girlfriend, and vice versa, by starting the conversation with a list of requests or a list of things that the ex must do. Sadly, certain political leaders who orchestrated the migration of their own people cling to power and then, ask their diaspora that they and their ancestors have hunted to come and invest in their country. These types of diaspora engagement cannot work, particularly in the African context where people seem to pull each other toward the bottom of the misery pit. At the same time, many foreign countries are taking advantage of the divergences among the Africans!

African Diaspora Engagement Must be like a Love Story. Why? Check out www.DiasporaEngager.com/Africa

 

The involvement of the diaspora in the development of their home country must follow certain basic rules of courtesy. I believe that Africa and its diaspora need to start “dating” each other in a format similar to that of a man trying to win back his ex-wife or ex-girlfriend, and vice versa. However, while some people that have broken up can easily find new loves, it is not easy for most diaspora to quickly forget their roots and embrace the culture of their new country. This implies that many opportunities still exist to start engaging the African Diasporas in a dialogue with their homeland which dearly needs them. For this dialog to succeed, it must not begin with begging the diaspora to come back to Africa or to invest in Africa. Similarly, the diaspora should not inaugurate this dialog by requesting that the African political leaders change overnight. The African Diasporas need to know that, though their new life abroad has changed the way they used to think, many of their brothers and sisters in Africa still act as if they have no brain or if they cannot get rid of the legacy of the colonial ignorance and slavery. Therefore, the African Diaspora must be tolerant with their own people who need to be willing to realign and renew their mentality so that synergistic coalitions can be fostered in a win-win framework for the advancement of our dear Africa rather than allowing the so-called super powers to continue poaching their rich lands and mines like the cake of their grandmother or like their heritage or like the field of their slaves that they are still trying to enslave with diverse model of modern technology, negotiation, aids, partnership, and legislation!!!

 

Please, don’t get me wrong. I am not saying that every African diaspora engagement effort has failed. Indeed, several people and organizations have successfully engaged with Africa and its diaspora in a positive way. Many Africans living in Africa and in the diaspora have also contributed to the development of their homeland. We take advantage of this opportunity to thank those Africans, African diasporas, their friends, partners and stakeholders who have made a positive difference in Africa.

However, after spending years working on the African problems and writing books on African Development, I can conclude that, when it comes to engaging the African diaspora in the development of Africa, ten questions need to be asked first:

  1. Who are the African Diaspora?
  2. Who is who among the African Diaspora?
  3. Where are they living?
  4. What are they doing?
  5. What problems are they facing?
  6. Why did they leave Africa?
  7. How can Africa help them to heal some of their wounds?
  8. What can we do to forgive each other and embrace a new journey of partnership?
  9. How can we partner rather than how can they help us?
  10. How can we initiate this partnership without bringing up money as the first issue?

 

And these questions must be answered without forgetting the millions of African-Americans, (descendants of the slaves or African Descent individuals of descendants of former slaves), whom some stupid and/or naive Leaders think are not worthy to be called African Diaspora! It is after these questions are sincerely addressed that Africa and its Diaspora can start talking about who can do what for who? Without following these simple strategic steps, the African diaspora will just keep creating thousands of African Diaspora Associations, while the African Political Leaders will keep creating more Political Parties in Africa, yet, sinking Africa, remaining at odds and, therefore, unable to work together to create positive change. If you like this article, you will be also interested in joining the Global Diaspora Engagement Platform and the African Diaspora Platform at http://DiasporaEngager.com/miniRegister. Anyway, I, Dr Roland Holou www.RolandHolou.com would like to hear from you.

God bless Africa and its People!!!

Why Immigrants and Diasporas Cannot Easily Return Back Home



Human migration is a universal problem that is here to stay. Human beings, and even wild animals, move because they are usually trying to solve a problem. For instance, when the weather is getting bad, many animal species know how to migrate to avoid exposing themselves to environmental conditions that can threaten their existence. Certain animals that cannot migrate, hibernate to avoid the bad weather like winter! Wild animals which are unable to migrate nor fully hibernate, usually suffer during the rough season, and some even die!

 

When human beings move, they also have in mind the notion of finding a better life. I do not think many people move to a new place just to willingly expose themselves to detrimental conditions that will hurt or kill them, unless they are terrorists, which is a bad thing. However, because of political limitations, human beings do not have the freedom to migrate to wherever they would like. In most cases, people are restrained to their native countries and unable to move abroad because they lack finances, government approval, connections, vision, and support from family or friends. Usually, when human beings manage to leave their home country for another country, they do not easily return back, unless something threatens their dream abroad, or some better opportunities open up in their home country, or they are repatriated from their residence country back to their native country. Even so, those who are repatriated want to return back to the country they just came from!

 

When it comes to the diaspora of the developing countries, if stinginess, unforgiveness, and selfishness can be added to the already-complicated equations among the diaspora and those residing in the same country, most of the immigrants allow pride to get in their way and would prefer dying abroad than returning back to their native country. It is in this critical condition that most countries are begging their diasporas to give back or to invest in their development.

Nevertheless, a handful of educated people living in the Diaspora would like to return to their country of origin or country of residence, but in most cases, a very few organized structures exist to facilitate that type of movement. Some people don’t even know who to talk to or where to start in order to return to their home country. This is because many developed countries do not have a clear plan to integrate or incorporate their diaspora and returning immigrants into the development of their own country. Many immigrants have returned or have been returned to their home country, but have failed due to a lack of programs to help them integrate into their new environment. Numerous traveling agencies and businesses assist people in planning their travels, but very few specialize in helping diaspora members return to their home country even if it is for a short stay to contribute to their nation’s development. After arriving to a new country and being surprised by the many hurdles they have to overcome, once realizing all the obstacles, certain immigrants oftentimes want to return home but lack the funding to do so.

 

The problem is more complex for the educated people living abroad. Indeed, some diaspora members studied at a very high cost; some may have even acquired debts (e.g. student loan, cost of living abroad), and after graduation, they would like to return back to their home country, but unfortunately, they can’t afford it, because the salary they will make in their home country cannot allow them to pay their debt and have a decent life. Furthermore, if they return, they will likely not find the tools and resources to practice what they have learned. However, if someone (e.g. government, nonprofit) can assist them in paying off that debt and having a decent job, some diaspora members would love to return home. A solution must be found for this global problem.

In our next post, we will discuss what DiasporaEngager is doing to solve this complex problem. Please stay tuned! Meanwhile, you can join our efforts by registering a free account at : https://diasporaengager.com/miniRegister

Première Plateforme Mondiale de Connexion et d’Engagement de la Diaspora Internationale: DiasporaEngager



 

1. Les problèmes de la diaspora globale et pourquoi la plateforme internationale des diasporas a été créée ?

  • Pour diverses raisons, des gens quittent leur pays d’origine pour aller en aventure dans l’espoir d’une vie meilleure qui, malheureusement, ne se retrouve pas généralement comme initialement prévue.
  • Plusieurs personnes et organisations dans le pays d’origine de la diaspora (en particulier les pays en développement) tournent la plupart de leurs besoins d’assistance vers leurs parents et amis à l’étranger, pensant que tous les immigrants ont réussi à l’étranger.
  • Au même moment, rien n’est si gratuit pour la diaspora à l’extérieur. La plupart des choses «gratuites» que la diaspora obtient à l’étranger ne sont pas suffisantes pour durablement réussir. Par conséquent, pour réussir, la plupart des diasporas doivent payer un prix élevé.
  • Non seulement les autochtones, les organisations, et les entreprises dans le pays de résidence de la diaspora sont souvent surchargés de demandes, mais aussi, ils préféreraient que la diaspora internationale achète leurs produits et services professionnels plutôt que de simplement demander d’aides gratuites.

  • La plupart des diasporas ou immigrants sont généralement incompris et/ou maltraités, par exemple à cause des barrières linguistiques, culturelles, et raciales, mais aussi en raison du manque d’intégration dans leur nouvel environnement où, parfois, les autochtones ou indigènes peinent aussi à réussir!
  • Dans le même temps, certaines organisations et agences gouvernementales tirent profit stratégiquement de cette situation mondiale que beaucoup de gens et de nations ne veulent pas ou ne peuvent pas pleinement comprendre ou dénoncer.
  • Les membres de la diaspora qui réussissent, ou ceux que nous pensons réussir, n’atteignent généralement pas leur plein potentiel, et s’ils en arrivent là, ça prend trop de temps. Au moment où ils y parviennent à réaliser leurs rêves, la plupart des membres de la diaspora contractent beaucoup de dettes, de frustrations et d’autres problèmes qui les amènent à se concentrer sur eux-mêmes plutôt qu’à vraiment penser au développement de leur pays d’origine où les dirigeants sont parfois impliqués dans des affaires de corruption et de mal gouvernance qui n’encouragent pas !
  • Pire, certains membres de la diaspora qui ont réussi et qui veulent donner en retour ou investir dans leur pays d’origine, ne savent pas où sont les besoins réels, les vrais secteurs d’investissement fiables et comment ils peuvent s’engager dans les processus de développement de leur nations, mêmes s’ils seront mal compris …
  • Ce problème mondial appauvrit les peuples et les nations. Avec l’accroissement des crises, guerres et catastrophes dans le monde entier, les migrations humaines vont s’accentuer et les problèmes y correspondants vont s’empirer si les actions appropriées ne sont pas durablement prises maintenant.

Pour réellement résoudre ce problème d’envergure mondiale, un système global doit être construit, où les diasporas internationales, les personnes et les organisations dans leur pays d’origine et dans leur pays d’accueil peuvent travailler ensemble pour s’entraider mutuellement. C’est justement ce pour quoi DiasporaEngager  (www.DiasporaEngager.com) a été créé! Il suffit de créer un compte gratuit pour pouvoir accéder aux ressources de DiasporaEngager.

2. Mission de DiasporaEngager

L’importance de la diaspora est fort soulignée dans la plupart des débats portant sur le développement des nations ; mais les actions réelles, concrètes/pratiques, et non partisanes manquent cruellement. La majorité des pays ne peuvent pas complètement se développer sans impliquer leur diaspora. L’intégration de la diaspora dans les questions de développement implique aussi des collaborations et partenariat entre cette diaspora et les intellectuels vivant dans le pays de départ de la diaspora.

Basé aux USA, DiasporaEngager – www.DiasporaEngager.com – est la première plateforme mondiale créée pour stratégiquement connecter sur un seul réseau les associations de diaspora du monde entier aux intellectuels, gouvernants, et organisations publiques et privées se trouvant dans les pays de résidence et dans les pays de départ de la diaspora à savoir: Associations, Businesses, Agences Gouvernementales, Services d’Immigration, Instituts de Recherche, Laboratoires, ONG, Philanthropes/Donateur, Agences de Recrutement, Écoles, Universités et autres Etablissements d’Enseignement, Étudiants, Enseignants, Chercheurs, Homme d’Affaires, Agence de Voyage, Chômeurs, Services de Bénévolat, etc. L’inscription et l’usage de cette plateforme sont gratuits.

Par exemple, la diaspora ne peut pas bien collaborer avec leurs compatriotes si elle ne sait pas où est-ce qu’ils vivent? Que font-ils ? Quels sont leur centres d’intérêts en terme de collaboration ou de partenariat ? Où les trouver ? Comment est-ce que la diaspora peut travailler avec eux ?

Bref, DiasporaEngager est le premier fournisseur de liaisons entre toutes les diasporas, les personnes et organisations dans leurs pays d’origine ainsi que dans leur pays d’accueil, pour détecter, collecter, et transférer des ressources, services et opportunités de développement entre les nations et leurs peuples dans un cadre gagnant-gagnant. DiasporaEngager accomplit cette mission en se focalisant sur certains domaines d’intérêt clés dont :
