“Contributing to AFFORD’s work has given me the opportunity to connect with like-
minded Africans in the diaspora who are passionate about the development of their
homelands. I’ve also enjoyed encouraging second-generation Africans to connect with
their countries of origin. Since AFFORD is on the forefront of diaspora engagement in
Europe, I’ve been able to learn about diaspora engagement policies from a global
perspective, which will help me in my studies and future career. I’m grateful for the
experience I’ve gained from supporting AFFORD’s mission.”
