Our office is opened to all willing individuals and organizations who share in the vision and goals of the (AU) DAF Mission.
“It is the top priority of the AU to embrace and encourage Africans in the diaspora to come home and fully participate in the social and economic development of their Motherland.” Former President of Mali Alpha Oumar Konare.
There is also the group who left Africa in search of ‘greener pastures’ in other countries abroad, and who have found themselves living there for the greater part of their lives. They and their children qualify to be called diasporas.
The desire for a return to their roots prompted the idea of an African Diaspora, which today has evolved as a very strong phenomenon across the Continent and in their various countries of abode. Indeed, any African who was born, or who lives, works or is studying outside of Africa is considered part of the Diaspora.
