The International Organisation for Migration (IOM), the Rwanda High Commission (RHC) and the African Foundation for Development (AFFORD) are co-hosting two events in the UK for the Rwandan community to present findings and recommendations from a recent study of Rwandans in the UK and gather feedback and comments on the content; to provide an overview of Rwanda’s diaspora policies, initiatives and opportunities; and to showcase individual diaspora engagement experiences from Rwandans living in the UK.

The events will also provide an opportunity for networking and wider discussions on diaspora engagement within the Rwandan community in the UK. The events are scheduled for 10th January in London and 11th January in Coventry.
