1. The problems we are trying to solve

Several people from Sao Tome and Principe are leaving their home country to go to others countries each year, seeking better opportunities, or trying to adjust to life’s challenges and solicitations. Sometimes, brain drain (migration of educated people) is seen as one of the greatest threats against the development of most countries including Sao Tome and Principe. Nevertheless, some developed countries are promoting policies and immigration laws that encourage foreign educated pundits or talented graduate students to leave Sao Tome and Principe to move abroad.

Unfortunately, many Sao Tomeans are usually disappointed by what they see after moving abroad, and others are disconnected from people and opportunities in Sao Tome and Principe as well as in their new host country. Because of a lack of information or right connections, those who migrate do not always produce the best of themselves or successfully integrate into their new environment. The immigrants from Sao Tome and Principe who succeed often don’t collaborate or network with the newly arriving immigrants or with those who are not reaching their dreams.

At the same time, Sao Tome and Principe would love to find and engage with the Sao Tomeans living in the diaspora, but this type of relationship is not working well. Besides money they send back to their relatives, the global Diaspora of Sao Tome and Principe do not contribute to the development of Sao Tome and Principe 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 of Sao Tome and Principe are usually unknown by many businesses, nonprofits and other organizations with whom they can do business in their country of residence and in Sao Tome and Principe. 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, migration of the people of Sao Tome and Principe 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 associations of Sao Tome and Principe, the people and organizations in Sao Tome and Principe and in the host country of the diaspora can work together to help each other mutually. That’s what we are trying to achieve here via the DiasporaEngager platform!
