14 Top Secrets That You May Not Fully Know or Understand About The Global Diaspora! – Part 1



Greetings from DiasporaEngager, www.DiasporaEngager.com, the world’s #1 and largest diaspora engagement network platform!

Today, we would like to share with you some of the secrets that many individuals and nations do not know or understand about the global diaspora that they dearly want to give back to their home country! Before we start diving into strategies and ways to finally engage the international diaspora with the development of their nations, we feel like it is very important that we  shed light on some of top secrets regarding this issue! The french people will say “secret de  polichinelle”. Here it is:

Based on a massive data collection and painful diagnostics, here are the dilemmas that most diasporas, their home countries, and their country of residence find themselves in:

  1. For many reasons, most people leave their country of origin to go into adventure hoping for a better life that, unfortunately, they don’t usually find as originally planned.

 

  1. For most people living in the diaspora, getting better opportunities to solve their problems and achieve their adventure dream is their main priority.

 

  1. People and organizations in the country of origin of the diasporas (particularly developing countries) address most of their needs for assistance to their relatives in the diaspora, thinking that all of those relatives are really having a better life abroad.

 

  1. Some people in the country of origin of the diaspora are mostly interested in receiving free gifts back from the international diaspora regardless of their success or not.

 

  1. At the same time, nothing is that free for the diaspora in the foreign countries they find themselves in. Most of the free things the diasporas get abroad are not enough to really help them find a sustainable way of success. Therefore, to really succeed abroad, most diasporas have to pay a high price.

 

  1. Usually, at their turn, most people living in the diaspora (at least the newcomers/migrants and those who are struggling to succeed) tend to ask the people in their host country to help them.

 

  1. Not only are native individuals, organizations, and businesses in the diaspora country of residence overloaded with requests for free help, but also, they would prefer the diaspora members (who are living by them) to buy their professional services and products rather than just ask for free help.

 

  1. Usually, most diasporas are not well understood for instance because of the language and cultural barriers, but also because of a lack of integration into their new environment where sometimes, the autochthonous are barely making it in this global economy in decadence!

 

  1. As the diasporas have their problems that they cannot solve, so the people and organizations in the diasporas’ host country have their own that they cannot or they do not want to solve free of charge those of the diaspora.

 

  1. Meanwhile, certain organizations and governmental institutions strategically take advantage of this situation that many people and nations do not and/or can not fully understand or share.

 

  1. Because of the problems mentioned above, it generally takes too long for most diaspora members to achieve their goals and succeed. Nevertheless, many diaspora members behave like if  life abroad is a paradise or the “Eldorado”. Therefore, instead of telling the truth to their people so brain drain and immigration can be slightly reduced at the profit of many nations which are sinking, many people lie and/or prefer to believe in lies!

 

  1. The diaspora members who succeed, or who we think succeed, do not usually reach their full potential, and if they do, it takes too long to get there.

 

  1. By the time they succeed, most diaspora members incur a lot of debt, frustrations, and other problems that cause them to focus on themselves rather than really thinking about helping those in their country of origin as the latter wish in their claim of “diaspora give back”.

 

  1. Some of those who succeed and who want to give back do not know where the real needs are and how they can engage themselves and others. Unfortunately, when some give back, many corruptible systems poison their good will! And a whole lot more!!!

 

To solve these problems, DiasporaEngager was invented. DiasporaEngager aims at being the premier provider of liaisons and strategies between all Diasporas, people and organizations in their home country as well as in their host countries, to set the developmental and global environment to detect, harvest, and transfer resources, services, and opportunities between people, organizations, and nations in a win-win framework, and much more.

Why the Global Diaspora Engagement Platform was Created? – Part 1



What is DiasporaEngager?

DiasporaEngager is the world’s premier and largest Diaspora network that addresses problems related to brain drain, education, business, philanthropy, traveling, immigration, volunteering, and much more. Usually, Diaspora refers to people who are living in a country or town that is not their place of origin/ancestry or the place they call home. Most people can be remotely linked to a country of ancestry, and because our services relate to everybody, “Diaspora” as used here applies to any human being.

 

Why the Global Diaspora Engagement Platform was created?

Millions of people are leaving their home country to go to others countries each year. Even within a country, many people are moving all the time, seeking better opportunities, or trying to adjust to life’s challenges and solicitations. The situation has been worsening in developing countries in a way that the brain drain is seen as one of the greatest threats against their development. Nevertheless, some developed countries are promoting policies and immigration laws that encourage foreign educated pundits or talented graduate students to leave their home country and come to those developed countries where they are “maintained” after graduation. So far, the efforts to stop or properly manage brain drain have been unsuccessful.

 

Unfortunately, many people are usually disappointed by what they see after moving, and others are disconnected from people and opportunities in their home country as well as in their host country. In other situations, people travel to new places without having a contact that can assist or mentor them if a need arises. Because of a lack of information or right connections, several aliens and travelers do not produce the best of themselves or successfully integrate to their new environment. Those who succeed often don’t collaborate/network with the newly arriving immigrants or with those who are not reaching their dreams.

 

Besides money they send back to their relatives, the global Diasporas do not contribute to the development of their country of origin as wished. Those who want to engage in humanitarian, fundraising, or philanthropy activities to give back don’t know how, where, and whom to contact to reach the real needy or to solve the real problems. At the same time, the Diasporas are usually unknown by many businesses, nonprofits and other organizations that can help them in their country of residence. This global problem impoverishes nations and deprives many organizations from reaching most of their potential market, clients, and customers.

 

With the increasing rise of crises, wars, and catastrophic events around the globe, human migration will keep growing and its corresponding problems will get worse if appropriate actions are not taken now. To sustainably solve this problem, a global system must be built where the Diaspora, the people and organizations in their country of origin and in their host country can work together to help each other mutually. That’s what DiasporaEngager was created for!

What is our Definition of Diaspora?



Welcome to Diaspora Engagement Blog !

We are very excited you chose to visit our blog.

On this blog, powered by Diaspora Engagement ® (aka DiasporaEngager), you will learn about and interact with the international Diasporas.

Before we start blogging about more serious topics, let’s make sure that we all have the same understanding of the term “Diaspora”.

 

Our Definition of Diaspora

In our context, the word Diaspora is referring to anyone who, for any reasons, is living in a country or town that is not his or her place of origin or ancestry or the place s/he calls home. Some people may call them an immigrant, a stranger, or an alien. Some may argue that, most individuals can be remotely linked to a country of origin different than their current country of residence, and therefore, most of us are an alien, immigrant, or a Diaspora of somewhere. In the US for instance, except the native Indians, everyone else can be considered an alien or immigrant. Even in that case, the Indians themselves have had to migrate from somewhere before reaching the US. The longer the duration of the stay of someone in a foreign land, the higher the likelihood that his or her descendants think that they (the descendants) are native of that place that their ancestry moved to long ago. That’s why, because they are not first, second, or third generation immigrant, many people easily forget that they are a stranger of what they call “our land”, and unfortunately treat the new immigrants like the “bad people” or like “those who are taking our lands or our country”, or like “those who don’t even speak our language well”, or like “those who don’t behave like us”. In reality, those new immigrants (new arrivals) are usually just trying to go through the obligatory survival and integration steps that the ancestors of those who are calling them “strangers” and who think they are native did long ago. Therefore, without entering into any political and demographic debates, the word “Diaspora” as used in our context can be applied to any human being.

In our future posts, we will give you more details about who we are and what we do, and how we may help you.  The Diaspora Engagement platform, DiasporaEngager.com, allow you to learn about the international diaspora and ways you can engage with them locally or worldwide.
