    Why African Diaspora Business Initiative Conference

    This ADBI Conference is geared to establish a framework through which the African Diaspora in the U.S. would be mainstreamed in Africa’s activities. The objective is to empower the African Diaspora to become more associated with Africa’s growth and development so that they can contribute effectively to the realization of its goals.
    This conference will served as an important outreach event for AU, ECOWAS & NEPAD to explain and showcase their objectives and orientation and its transition processes. It will provide a unique platform for disseminating information about their programs, objectives and services.
    The broad understanding is that the Diaspora should be directly involved in Africa’s activities and mechanisms should be put in place for the African Diaspora to partner with the AU, ECOWAS & NEPAD to foster economic and social development. This could include the provision of human and financial resources. Africa must develop a collective strategy for engaging the Diaspora. There is a wealth of financial, technical and intellectual expertise of Africans in the U.S. Africa needs to exploit these human and material resources to help tackle the challenges of development, environmental degradation, food security, and energy supply, HIV/AIDS, capacity building and equitable economic growth.

    Nimeipenda hii, ni majibu tosha kwa walengwa, tena unoposhutumiwa kwa kuwepo huko ulipo, sio wote wanaolewa exposure makes power, ungekuwepo nyumbani, sidhani kama ungekuwa na the 'power' you have now to hit them hard enough to touch them and make an impact mpaka wanalalama.

    You never know ungekuwa nyumbani ungekuwa wapi, yanayowakuta ma critique wa mfumo ovu, sote tunayajua, labda ungesustain jaribio la kuvuliwa uraia, au ungezimishwa kama kile kipindi cha talk show ya 'Kiti Moto', au unge just vanish into thin air kama Stan Katabalo!. Thanks you are there, keep hit'n 'em had till they have enough to loose the grip!.
