Alexandre Gouveia Considerando a violência como a mais evidente expressão contemporânea da questão social, esta entendida como consequência direta do modo de produção capitalista, marcado pela luta de classe e pela apropriação desigual das riquezas socialmente produzidas; Considerando que o sistema de segurança e justiça tem se mostrado historicamente, e sobretudo neste momento, como instrumento de manutenção das estruturas de poder político, econômico e social, resultando em criminalização da pobreza, da negritude, da juventude e dos movimentos sociais;Considerando que o efetivo e verdadeiro enfrentamento da violência deve ser feito por políticas preventivas, que passam por redistribuição de riqueza e garantia de direitos, e por políticas de repressão qualificada com absoluto respeito e promoção dos direitos humanos; Considerando a necessidade de afirmação da segurança como direito humano fundamental que requer políticas governamentais intersetoriais, responsabilização dos três entes federados, dos três poderes da república, além do Ministério Público e com ampla participação e controle popular; Considerando o equivocado modelo de segurança pública vigente no Brasil, gerenciado pelo paradigma repressivo punitivo e violador, que tem privilegiado o uso excessivo da força, o endurecimento das penas, a deficitária oferta do número de vagas no falido sistema prisional, a redução da maioridade penal, dentre outros; Considerando, por fim, a dimensão subjetiva da violência, construída e sedimentada historicamente por uma cultura sócio-política autoritária, escravista, elitista, machista, homofóbica, patrimonialista e privatista; (Adaptado do " Manifesto pela vida e por um novo modelo de segurança pública "MNDH )

Asukulu Etoka

Asukulu Etoka I graduated in Geography (bachelors degree), in my country of origin the Congo Republic Democratic. Quickly I started teaching and latter was hired as high school principal. I worked in a rural and remote region where villagers were abandoned to themselves by the government. I couldn't wait to see the misery of these people, so I started to built fountains water in several villages. My job position helped me to create an organization ( UPADI ) by which seeds varieties were introduced in the region and also we initiated a program of planting trees around the schools. The succession of wars in Congo (DRC) precipitated my immigration in USA. By 2006-2007, the massive movement of immigration brought in several Africans groups ( Somalians, Burundians , Congolese) etc. The economic depression in 2008 created similar conditions we have observed in Congo (DRC). The poverty , the lack of jobs were profoundly noticed .We I started again to work with refugees by creating the Community Gardens (Africans Community Development In). Today, I fell that the mission was not well accomplished in Congo. I have project for fruits production and processing as an alternative to fight hunger and increase population income.I also work with refugees children to improve literacy in Boise.

Aurélia DAKPOGAN GBAGUIDI Aurelia DAKPOGAN holds a Master in Agro-economy and is currently the Regional Access to Finance Specialist/West Africa on 2SCALE project in IFDC. With over 12 years experiences in agriculture financing, she has developed several mechanisms to reduce risk and facilitate access to credit for agribusiness clusters actors. She has also established partnership with many banks and MFIs in West Africa to remove restraints in value chain finance and develop innovative financials products. - Education: Master in Agro-Economy, Faculty of Agronomic Sciences at University of Abomey Calavi (FSA/UAC), Benin - Country Experience: Benin, Ghana, Nigeria, Togo, Mali, Burkina-Faso, - Language: French (Excellent), English (Excellent) - Employment Record: 2012-Ongoing: Access to Finance Specialist / West Africa, 2SCALE /IFDC-NWAFD 2009 -2013: Rural Finance Specialist / PINC project IFDC-NWAFD 2007-2010: Rural Development Engineer/ Ministry of Agriculture/ CARDER/ Benin 2004-2006: Technical assistance/ Export Development Association - Mains achievements during career Introduction the warrantage at farmer’s level to increase working capital financing to farmers by using their own stock of product as guarantee. In 2014, this mechanism enabled maize farmers in Borgou to store more than 1,000tons of maize, and obtain a loan of 55.7 millionFCFA ($111,000) to purchase farm inputs. The financial institution partners were FECECAM and Sian’son ONG. An experience on warrantage in Benin was documented and diffused on www.business.africa (Business Africa N°348 Week of 23rd September) Negotiation with financial institution to provide short-term financing for production or aggregation of produce to fulfill the contract, for businesses that have a formal contract with a buyer but lack working capital. The bank pays the supplier directly and later recovers the loan from the contracted buyer, under a tripartite agreement (cluster−buyer−bank). As example, such a negotiation enables Lapo Microfinance Bank to provide in 2014, a loan of 10million Naira ($60,000) to the Pampaïda chili producers’ group in Nigeria. This was based on a contract between the 100-member farmer group and AACE Foods for 20 tons of chili peppers. Development of a MoU with Oikocredit to support SMEs involved in food processing and to farmer associations to access equipment financing. This partnership cover Benin, Mali, Togo and Ghana. This financing is designed not for routine support (e.g. expansion) but to facilitate the introduction of a technology innovation that could be applied to enterprises. As example, in 2014, under this type of assistance Oikocredit approved a 400 million FCFA ($800,000) loan to Promo Fruit based in Benin, a juice processor that sources pineapples from producer groups in the Atlantique region of Benin. The first tranche enables Promo Fruit to establish a can production unit. The second fund the purchase of processing equipment. Introduction on a new, simplified method of crop insurance in Benin and Mali, in partnership with PlaNet Guarantee. Insurance pay-outs are based on an objective, measurable parameter. In this case, farmers are compensated when evapo-transpiration exceeds a threshold value, indicating that plants suffered severe water stress. The process is quick (because fewer field inspections are required), transparent, and minimizes disputes about how much compensation must be paid. More than 400 maize farmers purchased index-based crop insurance in 2013. In 2014, nearly 2,000 farmers were sensitized, mostly through radio programs; 554 farmers registered, 287 in Mali and 267 in Benin. Implementation of a training program on financial literacy among smallholder farmers in West Africa. The training covers budgeting, savings options, financial products and services and others areas. Project teams have also developed a training module that provides concrete guidelines for coaches and business support services as they work with farmer groups to improve saving, record keeping and financial prudence.

BASUG Germany

BASUG Germany BASUG is one of the active Diaspora organisations in the Netherlands and Germany working together with different stakeholders including the Dutch government, EC-JMDI, UNDP, Oxfam Novib, ICCO, Seva Network Foundation, Environment and Development Foundation – North Rhein Westfalia (SUE-NRW), CIM/GIZ and other mainstream development organisations. BASUG, registered with the Dutch Chamber of Commerce and German local authority, emerged out of desire and conviction of a number of professional migrants in the Netherlands and Germany coming mainly from Bangladesh, and others here to work on issues relevant to the community and overwhelming urge to contribute to development of Bangladesh. Its immediate motivation was to come forward and assist in devastating floods and other calamities, frequenting the country. It was working since early nineties, but formalized in 2005. Although primarily focused on Bangladesh, Bangladeshi Diaspora in the Netherlands and Germany, it has increasingly reached out to Bangladeshi Diaspora in other European countries and to Sri Lankan Diaspora in Europe. BASUG thus blended best of both cultures- East and West. This is reflected in its every sphere, in its strategy and management style, to realise the objectives of the organisation. Apart from the Netherlands and Germany, BASUG has its Chapters in Bangladesh, United Kingdom, Italy and Belgium. In addition, it has established partnership with a leading Sri Lankan organization, and number of institutions in Bangladesh.

Bill Schafer We are using cryptocurrency protocols including Bitcoin to develop applications. We believe the decentralized nature of computing enabled by blockchain technology enables the development of a new generation of products and services, and radical new approaches to business models. The impact of this revolution in computing will have broad and far reaching impact on industries such as; financial services, banking, insurance, contracts, property, law and even the very nature of money. Our first application is a text message based Bitcoin wallet. It is designed to work on the sms protocol and work easily on a "feature phone". It is estimated 4 billion people have feature phones but don't have access to financial services. We believe cyryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin are an enabling technology to lift vast numbers of people out of poverty. Our focus of the Epok wallet is the developing world. Digital money has many advantages especially in the developing world. We make it easy to send Bitcoin via sms. Our goal is to provide a secure, easy way to conduct transactions via sms and significantly reduce the transaction fees charged to those least able to pay them.

Birthright Armenia

Birthright Armenia Birthright Armenia was founded in 2003 by Edele Hovnanian with the belief that it is every Armenian's birthright to not only see Armenia, but also experience their homeland via an enriching, hands-on, life-changing experience. Right from the start we believed that an immersion program in Armenia with volunteer service at its core, especially one that encourages longer-term stays, would foster a greater sense of commitment to things Armenians and result in inspired and well-prepared young people to lead the next generation. Our alums are leaders with a deeper spiritual, cultural and intellectual understanding and appreciation of the Armenian people, its history, the importance of language, and with a true desire to focus on our collective future. Our mission is to strengthen ties between the homeland and Diasporan youth, by affording them an opportunity to be a part of Armenia's daily life and to contribute to Armenia's development through work, study and volunteer experiences, while developing life-long personal ties and a renewed sense of Armenian identity. Birthright Armenia envisions: A significant percentage of Diasporan youth having personal ties to Armenia, a better understanding of the social, cultural, economic, and political issues and needs there, and globally participating in Armenia's development. Energized and inspired Armenian homeland youth, committed to remaining in Armenia, as a result of a better understanding of their critical role in nation building and a stronger connection to their Diasporan counterparts. The development of future leaders of the Diaspora with a better understanding of and strong ties with the homeland, promoting the importance of participation in Armenia's development within their local communities worldwide.

Calvin Pearson Project 1619, is a 501 c-3 non-profit organization, organized to promote Hampton’s rich African-American history. The organization is composed of prominent Hampton, local, regional and national leaders recognized in the areas of historical preservation and interpretation, education, resource development, special events, and marketing. Our main vision will be to construct a National Monument at Fort Monroe by 2019 to honor and remember the 400th Anniversary of the arrival of the first enslaved Africans on English occupied territory at Point Comfort in 1619. Secondary projects will be promoting the birth of William Tucker in Hampton and his legacy as being the first documented child of African descent born in America; promoting our local Contraband of War heritage; and remembering the victims of the Transatlantic slave trade that still impacts our lives. This is America’s history and our goal is to let the world know that the “Birth of Africa in America” started in Hampton, Virginia. Our national fundraising goal is to raise $1 Million dollars to commission, fabricate and install the National Monument at Fort Monroe in 2019 when our country remembers the 400th Anniversary of the arrival of the first Africans in British America. Our goal is to produce at least one major event a year as a fundraiser for the National Monument. Each August 20th on the anniversary date of the first landing we sponsor African Landing Commemoration Day that includes a symposium, jazz concert and prayer service. The purpose of the event is to provide historical documentation on the first Africans and subsequent impact on America. Our goal is to work with individuals, businesses and organizations to create a collaborative coalition to share resources, create events, and be a historical clearing house on the African Diaspora and its cultural and economic impact on America’s legacy. We need support in raising money for the monument and promoting the history of the first landing.

Carlson Berenanda Connor We are a relatively young organization, founded in 1996 in response to a very destructive hurricane that struck Anguilla on September 5th, 1995. I served as Vice President for Nine years.Since then I have been duly elected as President from then until now. MISSION: The Anguilla Progressive Association of new York, Inc. (APANY) is a 501 (c) 3 corporation, charted in the State of New York by Anguillians to assist Anguillians at home and abroad, and whereas prominently included i that broad mission. APANY is committed to provide assistance for the educational social, economic and cultural need of Anguillians. Some of our major goals are: APANY strives to carry on the philanthropic ideas of the previous organizations, such as The Anguilla Progressive Society of New York that was started in New York in 1923; and the Sons an Daughters of Anguilla of New Jersey. Membership in the Association is open to any person who shares a common interest in promoting the goals and objective of the Association. APANY also works with several organizations in Anguilla to accept contributions in North America. To conduct activities which are charitable, educational, and cultural to unite all people who are interested in the island of Anguilla To provide the goodwill and general welfare of its members To provide assistance to persons in need To activities for the elderly and youth To provide scholarship awards To provide mentors to assist and encourage students who receive scholarship. To sponsor and support cultural programs in the performing and visual arts To conduct activities which are charitable, educational and cultural in nature, both for our own members, and for Anguillians, individuals and groups alike, wherever they reside. our major vehicle for accomplishing these goals is through fund raising activities and gifts received from other charitable agencies in the US. Our activities are ongoing. The money raised from these activities is used primarily to purchase supplies and equipment for the youth of Anguilla. To this date, these are some of the activities in which we have been engaged. Our most outstanding project for which we are raising funds is to build a community center in Anguilla. This center will replace the former one which was built by the Anguilla progressive Society of new York and the Sons and daughters of Anguilla in New Jersey, and which has now been incorporated in the Albena Lake Hodge Comprehensive School (ALHCS) to house their Music Department. We strive to carry on the philanthropic ideals of the previous organizations. When the Community Center with its theater and other meeting facilities,for seniors, the Anguilla Diabetic Association, its Olympic style swimming pool, and other sports facilities, would have been completed, we the members of APANY would have fulfilled the goal of repaying the former societies on behalf of the younger generations of Anguilla, and we would have fulfilled our goal of providing a venue for cultural programs in the performing and visual arts. Our organization takes care of its members as well. We organize activities that keep us in contact with one another, giving us that moral support which we so often need in our sojourn away from home. We provide a forum where members can participate in activities that are cultural, social and economic. On an annual basis we honor hardworking and outstanding members,as well as Anguillians in general,wherever they reside, for their continued contributions to their respective communities or institutions where they serve with distinction. And though mentioned last, they are by no means the least, we recognize our high school and college graduates encourage them to forge ahead to achieve their educational goals. On March 2012 , the Anguilla Progressive Association of New York, Inc. and the Optimist Club of Anguilla signed a MOU. The purpose of this MOU is to establish the general framework in which the Parties will collaborate. Under its overall mission, APANY is authorized to accept tax deductible contributions that may be use for any eligible charitable purpose in the United States and Anguilla.

Chinwe C Ohajuruka Chinwe Ohajuruka is an architect, project manager and sustainability consultant. She is the CEO of Comprehensive Design Services (CDS), a business that is located in USA and Nigeria. CDS primary focus is on the design and large-scale development of the Passive House Prototype (PHP) into sustainable neighborhoods. The PHP is a "Whole System Design" affordable solution to the challenges present in many sub-Saharan Africa of large housing deficits, inadequate power, inaccessible water and limited improved sanitation. The PHPs are low-energy, self-cooling, bio-climatically designed housing modules that respond to the climate change mitigation and adaptation needs of the most vulnerable nations. CDS focuses its efforts on social impact projects, and aims to do them profitable. It is our firm belief that every human has the right not just to shelter, but to live in beauty and dignity in a place that they can call their own. With our projects, we aim to create opportunities for employment, wealth and home ownership. The homes we create are designed with sustainability and dignity in view. We are unafraid to accept the challenges of designing in and for communities where poverty is high and opportunities are low. We also believe that until the private sector engages in the widespread provision of affordable housing profitably, housing deficits, homelessness and hopelessness will continue to grow.

Diaspora Talent

Diaspora Talent Bridging brain drain Diasporatalent.com is a premium and 1st online job portal whose mission is to bridge ‘brain drain’ in low- and middle-income countries. We list public sector jobs, private company jobs, social enterprise jobs, not-for-profit jobs and multinational company jobs for which it’s difficult to recruit the best staff. Why Diaspora Talent? We’ve noticed that in many low- and middle-income countries employers and government agencies struggle to recruit highly skilled and talented workers in critical jobs, while thousands of quality and passive candidates in the diaspora are unable to access jobs announced on local media outlets in these countries. That’s why we started Diasporatalent.com – to bring together employers in low- and middle-income countries and a talent pool in the diaspora, to provide resources to people find a job in their home country or country of interest, and to help employers find and recruit the best staff across the globe. Diasporatalent.com is dedicated to achieving the following: Provide resources to advertise and match skill-shortage jobs in low- and middle-income countries to a talent pool in the diaspora. Establish a database for skilled and talented candidates to freely upload their CVs. Uploaded CVs are searched and/or forwarded to networks of employers and government agencies in candidates’ respective country of interest. Collaborate with partners, including embassies, national governments and national diaspora affairs organisations, to provide information and news updates on opportunities and incentives for returning migrants.

Dorothy Mwawasi

Dorothy Mwawasi I am a first-generation immigrant from Kenya. I have lived in the US for the last 20 years but I maintain close contact with my immediate and extended family in Kenya. My greatest accomplishment was to have been the first in my family to earn a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) in Marketing at Christopher Newport University in Virginia in 1999. I continued with higher education and matriculated in 2004 with a Master’s in Business Administration (MBA) at Marymount University. In 2005-2007, I worked independently as a contractor for the World Bank and the International Finance Corporation (IFC) gaining experience in global funding projects in South Asia (Vietnam, Cambodia and Mongolia) as well managed the funding of case studies developed by professors at various business schools in Kenya, Nigeria, Ghana, Tanzania and Rwanda. Thereafter, I switched careers into the healthcare field, and worked for Children’s National Medical Center in administration and project management under the leadership of the VP of Finance. My experience at CNMC sparked an interest in healthcare management, and in 2012 embarked on another degree, a Masters in Healthcare Management at Marymount University. For my internship I spent a month, at the Beatrice Tierney Clinic in Bupoto, Uganda, where I applied best practices in healthcare management to critically evaluate the medical supply ordering system at the clinic and after careful analysis resulted in the implementation of new practices that now allow the clinic to operate in a more financially efficient manner. Recently, in January to May 2014, I was selected to participate in a pilot project for USAID, the Diaspora for Development project (Dfd), where I volunteered with a small non-profit, Sauti ya Wanawake Pwani, SYW (in English means Voice of Women at the Coast). SYW advocates for women and children’s rights in Mombasa, Kenya. While working at SYW I contributed to helping them create a marketing strategy and improving their management structure. SYW is a forum engaged in activities to bring social change by empowering women to be proactive in asserting their role in development free from male dominance and other issues of inequality. SYW is a grassroots movement focused on bringing social change by challenging a patriarchal society to transform it to a more inclusive society. The key strategies for SYW are: capacity building of women through entrepreneurship, creating networks and linkages with other organizations with the same goals, community education and awareness and influencing policy and legislation. SYW is made up of more than 6500 non-fee paying members active in six countries of the Coast region. The majority of Sauti members come from indigenous ethnic groups including the Swahili, Mijikenda, Bajun, Pokomo, Orma and Taita. The women and girls served by SYW are faced with multiple levels of discrimination caused not only by their gender but by their minority status. The next chapter of my life is to create a SYW (USA) chapter to empower women from the diaspora in the US and Canada to support SYW Kenya financially through fundraising; foster volunteering and active involvement in their programs.

En effet des travaux de valorisation des produits issus de la fermentation alcoolique (Akpan, Gowé, mawè) ont été effectués et ont permis d'améliorer la technologie traditionnelle de production. La valorisation des légumes feuilles traditionels a fait aussi objet de plusieurs travaux de recherche à travers l'inventaire des connaissances endogènes et l'évaluation de leur potentiel nutritionnel et médécinal. Aussi des travaux de valorisation des produits forestiers non ligneux ont été menés. A cet effet le potentiel nutritionel des produits de Baobab, les condiments issus des graines de néré (Afitin, iru, sonru) ont été caractérisés au plan physicochimique,microbiologique et des améliorations ont été apportées à la technologie traditionnelle de production de ces condiments avec à la clé la formulation d'un ferment qui permet de contrôler la fermentation. Récemment nous avons entamé des travaux de recherche sur la technologie de production du beurre de Pentadesma butyracea dans la perspective de créer une filière d'exportation de ce beurre au même titre que celui du beurre de Karité.

Flavia Nicole Abdurahman

Flavia Nicole Abdurahman In 2012, after over 10+ years in the field, filming communities affected by long-time conflict, I was inspired to set up PeacebuildingTV (PBTV), an Australian non-profit organisation, which trains diaspora, at the community level, in peace-building. PBTV offers an introductory toolkit to build the capacity of those inside their communities, who have found themselves, for various reasons, as informal inside mediators in their communities. I am a former student of Dr Johan Galtung & subscribe to his approaches to non-violent conflict resolution. These principles underlie my curriculum.

Gary Allen

Gary Allen The Congo New Life (CNL) Initiative addresses the root causes of extreme poverty in the Democratic Republic of Congo by taking a holistic, community-led approach to sustainable development. To meet the many different challenges each region faces, the villages will use multiple tools such as community health workers, diversified local food production, commercial farming, malaria control, piped water, trade education and connectivity to name a few. These multiple tools are synergistic—while each has been proven to support its main target, each also contributes to progress on several or all of the goals. Congo New Life the parent corporation was incorporated as a non-profit organization under the laws of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Its headquarters are located in the city, Lubumbashi, DR Congo. The Company is founded by Pastors Jacques Kalabo and Sostha Muvuma who, along with Gary Allen actively manage the company’s direction and growth.

GlobalWelsh GlobalWelsh Diaspora project Project Objective The objective of the GlobalWelsh ‘Diaspora Entrepreneurship’ project is to determine and validate ‘best practice’ for the implementation of Wales’s Diaspora Entrepreneurship programme. Key Focus Areas • Research how other countries engage with their Diasporas • Identify and engage with Wales’s 50 most influential Diaspora Entrepreneurs and Business Leaders to determine their capacity and propensity to contribute and help shape the Welsh Diaspora initiative • Determine the potential benefits to Wales of establishing its own Diaspora organisation • Organise an inaugural Welsh Diaspora Conference to coincide with the 2015 Hay Festival The event will involve: o Wales’s Top50 Diaspora & Top50 resident Entrepreneurs o Project Stakeholders e.g: Welsh Government and private sector sponsors o Hay Festival Executives o Others committed to the future development of a Welsh Diaspora Origins of the Project The ‘Diaspora Entrepreneurship’ project has its origins within the ‘Welsh Entrepreneurs’ community and has been two years in gestation. It is understood that long term engagement with Wales’s most successful non-resident entrepreneurs and business leaders, will provide opportunities for them to contribute to improving Wales’s economic performance and bring a more international / global approach to business. In addition their contribution will greatly impact Wales’s next generation of entrepreneurs and business leaders. There will be other less tangible benefits including exposure to different business cultures that could help us develop a better understanding of the diversity and opportunities within the global economy.

Jane Mwangi Diaspora Interlink About us At Diaspora Interlink we believe in mutually beneficial linkages between the diaspora and their country of origin. We therefore specialize in twofold functions: a) We link the Diaspora to available opportunities at home. b) We work with government agencies, organizations, banks, institutions, counties and individuals to implement comprehensive strategies for them to gainfully connect with their Diasporas. Why we do what we do Many members of the diaspora are interested in seizing available opportunities in their home countries for personal and communal benefits but do not have adequate information about available opportunities and appropriate facilitation and linkages to exploit those opportunities. On the other hand, there is a growing interest among leaders and practitioners in the public, private non-profit and private for profit sectors who seek to engage the diaspora and are seeking for comprehensive strategies of engaging the diaspora more effectively. This is due to the realization that the diaspora have the potential to contribute to the economic, social and political development of their home countries through financial flows, investments and trade, as well as by bringing back home new skills and knowledge, ideas, cultures, attitudes and social and capital flows, and political identities and practices, among other benefits. Diaspora Interlink seeks to link the Diaspora to available opportunities at home as well as connect government agencies, organizations, banks, institutions, counties and individuals to their Diasporas.

I am the Founder and Publisher of 'N Gratitude Publishing Company, a small independent company, and also Author of the 2-part Return of the African Diaspora realistic fiction series. The series is about an African American woman who travels to Ghana, West Africa, and begins a quest to reunite the African Diaspora in America that was taken from Mother Africa by force. The protagonist follows her spiritual guidance against all odds to see Marcus Garvey's dream to fruition, despite personal distractions. Her ambitious plan involves teaching African Americans who they really are so they can appreciate their familial connection, and at the same time it was written to help West Africans understand how these African Americans got to be who we currently are. The books strip away all emotional considerations around American slavery to reveal its economic purpose.

Marjorie Lloyd Waluye

Marjorie Lloyd Waluye I am a retired teacher of history and political science looking to move to either southern Africa or East Africa. I have BS in history and political science, with an emphasis on International Affairs. , I hold a Masters in Public Administration. I began my adult life as an anti apartheid activist and continue to work to enhance life for African Americans in my community. To this end I have launched several non profits. I worked on the development of new schools in New York City and am currently engaged in the development of The Get Out Foundation, a community building organization that will support families who wish to provide supplemental enriichment for their children. We believe that the lack of resources and awareness causes a gap in achievement and to lessen this divide, it is essential for our children to gain the necessary exposure and learning experiences. For at least 25 years I have served as an educator in New York City Secondary schools. During my tenure I taught Global History, Participation in Government, Economics, and Advanced Placement - US Government and Politics. I have chosen early retirement in order to pursue my passion which is the development of people of African descent. I am certain that I hold a unique skill set that woud be as asset to any organization. I am a life long learner and an active traveller.

As part of our expansion to build incremental business advantage in West Africa; We incorporated a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) subsidiary in the Republic of Ghana: Quebec Earthwork Ghana Limited” under the Companies Act, 1963 (Act 179) vide Certificate of incorporation dated July 26, 2013 bearing registration No CS240642013 in Victoriaborg, Accra Ghana; with associate technical partners in Singapore, South Korea, New York, South Africa, USA, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, India and Canada. Our partners have successfully completed many prestigious projects of high quality industrial and building construction with 35 years of experience in construction and real estate industry. OUR OPERATIONS IN NIGERIA On October 25, 2011, we commenced operations with a drive to succeed in qualitative service delivery in Construction Management, Design/Building, Real Estate & Facility Management, Dredging & Reclamation, Roads & Bridges/Drainage Construction, Stockpiling & Shore Protection, Vibro-coring & Hydrographic Surveying, EPC Pipelines & HDD Tunnel Underground, Mechanical & Fabrication Services, thereby meeting the set 'International Standards and Regulations; with a vision of partnering with Contractors and Private Real Estate Developers who are technically constrained to execute their projects been government or private projects for the first five (5) years vide the date of Incorporation July 27, 2011. PAN- AFRICAN INVESTMENT Pursuant on the above, we are led to share our goal to make a difference in the Real Sector of the African society specifically to contribute our quota to the development of Nigeria and West Africa by building state of the art facility jointly with foreign investors from “Asia/Oceania, Europe and America” across West African countries like Nigeria, Ghana, Togo, Cote D ivory, Guinea Conakry and Republic of Benin as a brand/trademark; as a life time investment opportunity that will help West Africa countries to curb the rapid unemployment situation in Nigeria. We are passion driven to bring-home innovative technologies and products that will ensure long-lasting positive effect and success on end-users of our proposed new city, and to encourage entrepreneurship by providing consultancy services for customers, especially unemployed graduates to venture into profitable areas and change the foreign investors and public opinion about the standard of doing business in Nigeria. The proposed City we are trying to develop in Nigeria is a Smart Industrial City that will be connected to ecosystem via connectivity and convergence with the following features: Smart Digital Management of Energy, Smart Automated Intelligent Buildings, Smart Intelligent Mobility, Smart Seamless Connectivity, Smart Digital Management of Infrastructure, Smart Intelligent Healthcare Technology, Smart Governance on-the-go, and Smart Civic Digital Natives which in turn would access further economic development with the foundations of Prosperity and Fundamental infrastructural services that will compete in the world economy. The proposed City shall attract Multinational and Domestic Corporations to this new location for promising private and public sector/industries as a new business hub and this we want to develop first in the South-East region of Nigeria, thereby making it “The Dynamo of the South - East Nigeria Economy” having the South-East Business Class as co-promoters to guarantee off-taking. Since virtually every striving retail and importation businesses in some African countries like Nigeria, Ghana, Togo, Cote D ivory, Guinea Conakry and Republic of Benin revolves around the majority of the South-Eastern Nigeria citizens in terms of marketing and sales of foreign manufactured products from “Asia/Oceania, Europe and America,” manufacturers depend on the South-East Business Class Citizens of Nigeria (SEBCCN) for marketing and sales of their finished products ranging from Automobiles, Clothes & Textiles, Person Household & Electronics, Healthcare & Pharmaceuticals” across the West African countries. Due to the unique concept of this proposed project, this shall be the first time where Nigerians will have the opportunities to invest their funds into large income producing infrastructural development projects as investments jointly owned with foreign investors from “Asia/Oceania, Europe and America” being co-promoters of the proposed project. The project also will be quoted in the Global Stock Market (GSM) for investors' security. To achieve this goal we have carefully done our homework and the proposed project site is approximately 212 Hectares with connexion to more acquisition and the site is strategically located in the Heartland of the South Eastern Region of Nigeria, which enjoys reasonable proximity to many of the neighboring states, towns, metropolitan markets including Port Harcourt, Onitsha, Enugu, Abakaliki, Yenagoa, Calabar, Uyo with added advantage of offer quick access to the capitals growth zones and transport links. More so, it lies directly within the path of South Eastern Region of Nigeria's natural reserves, the said site is also surrounded by oil wells and blocks operated by Oil Exploration and Producing Companies and on-going development of Gas Turbine to guarantee Power Supply. The South Eastern region of Nigeria is one of the richest areas in natural resources with large reserves of Agricultural Products: Oil palm, Raffia palm, Rice, Groundnut, Melon, Cotton, Groundnut, Cocoa, Rubber, Maize, Cashew Nuts, Yam Cassava, Forest Trees; and Mineral Resources: Crude oil, Natural gas, Limestone, Clay, Kaolin and Gypsum, Salt, Iron Ore, Coal Fine, Marble, Silica sand, Lead, Zinc and White Clay the selected site for the proposed new city is a perfect location to manufacturers and industries. Our vision is to create a platform for state governments to jointly establish/owned manufacturing industries in the proposed smart city with interested investors from “Asia, Europe and North America” considering similar Natural Resources deposits in the South-East States “Ebonyi, Enugu, Anambra, Imo, Abia and its neighboring states via boundaries to the path of the proposed Smart Industrial City site sharing borders with the North East “Benue State”, North west “Kogi State”, Cross Rivers State, Akwa Ibom state, Rivers state, Bayelsa state and Delta State respectively. The concept/idea is for Federal/states Governments of Nigeria to contribute their natural resources being “Agricultural or Solid Minerals”; as their equity shareholding in industries thereto as investment on a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) agreement with interested from investors/industrialists, but line with the policies, constitution of the federal Republic of Nigeria and its relevant MDAs, regulatory/supervisory bodies. For instance: * Imo State and Anambra State are also blessed with Petroleum, Crude Oil and Natural Gas for establishment of REFINERY, PETROCHEMICAL AND GAS PLANTS. * Abia State, Enugu State, Imo State, Anambra State and Ebonyi State are also blessed with cultivation of Yam, Cassava, Oil Palm, Maize, Cocoa, Rice, Groundnut, Cashew Nuts which are viable for industries like STARCH PRODUCTION, CASHEW PRODUCTION AND GRAIN MILLING INDUSTRIES. Apart from being consumed, they serve as inputs for LIVESTOCK FEEDS PRODUCTION AND VEGETABLE OIL MILL. * Enugu State,Imo State and Anambra State has unexploited and abundant of Limestone’s,Clay, Gypsum and kaolin which are raw materials for production of CEMENT These and many others industries await investors to exploit which will attract development and further create more jobs for Christians in the south-east based on its Natural Resources/Exportable Products which is a major drive of our vision and that of the Foreign Investors. The vision is also to launch a platform that will connect the “Unskilled to the Skilled” since the vision revolves around every facet of human life, especially job creation for the unemployed graduates and the undergraduates, by bringing innovations and technology transfer to encourage home-grown entrepreneurship practices by enforcing local content act as terms of agreement with prospective investors and industrialists. The under-listed are some Potential areas for investments: Cement Factories, Chemical Plants, Ceramic Industry, Grain Milling, Starch Production, Cashew Product Industry, Integrated Palm Produce Industry, Fruit and Vegetable Juice Concentrate Production, Integrated Multi Oil Seeds Processing Plant, Paper mill facilities, Packaging industries, Footwear manufacture, Scrap waste iron recovery, processing and export, Water treatment and bottling plants, Glass manufacturing plants and other small-scale industries such as Machine tools manufacture and assembly, automobile spare parts, etc…. This platform of inter-state investments via natural resources will quickly offer access to capital growth zones and infrastructural development “Transportation” links of states involved and Technology Transfer which is my major focus irrespective of political parties or differences as Nigerians. This vision has been conceived since July 2013 till – date and proposals and appointment request have been submitted to the South –East and South - South Senators of the 8th Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria since March 21, 2016 having carefully understudied the zone as well as made all necessary discussion with Foreign Investors from Asia, Europe and North America. Our written proposal has brought changes in the 8th Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria via the review of some bills/sponsorship of new bills: 1. A Bill for an Act to Establish the National Roads Fund for the purpose of financing the maintenance and rehabilitation of National Roads and for other matters connected therewith, 2016 (SB. 218) 2. A Bill for an Act to provide for the Utilization, Sustainability and Adequate supply of Renewable Energy for Electricity and Heat Generation and for related matters, 2016 (SB. 131) 3. A Bill for the establishment of Inland Ports at Onitsha, Enugu and other Land - Locked States 4. Bill for an Act to provide for the Establishment of Nigeria Industrial Development Zones and for other related matters, 2016. (SB. 280) Our proposals have also lead to State Governors of coming together again by way of harnessing the potentials of their various zones. ‘’South-West Governors Forum, ‘’ South- East Governors Forum, ‘’South- South Governors Forum and the North East Governors Forum. In same vein, this also brought about the two (2) Bills for the establishment of North East Development Commission (NEDC) and South East Development Commission (SEDC) with all these processes and progress. This also strengthened the key players the “Enugu State Investment Summit’’ held in Enugu from April, 2016 and “Enugu State Economy Summit’’ held in November, 2016. Nigeria as a country is now set to diversify the economy due to the current crude Oil price benchmark thereby review policies and taxation system to attract/secure foreign investment in order to boost the real sectors “Agriculture, Power, Mining, Manufacturing and Housing”of the Nigeria economy. The City will create values and sustainable lifestyle for investors, developers, businesses and people working within and outside Nigeria. Hence, we seek for reliable and credible Africans in DIASPORA as partners and/or investors to enable us commence the preliminaries of the proposed Smart Industrial City. Africans in DIASPORA as partnership could be executed as a shareholding partner “Silent or Active”; or a member of the upcoming “Non-Executive and Independent Director's Forum with Foreigners” (NEIDF) on Special Purpose Agreement; as the City will open investment options to investors (foreign/local), corporate occupiers with a range of financial investment options that will guarantee investors better returns which will suit investors business needs as to service private-public Sectors/Industries. The master plan will be flexible for world renowned companies and individuals to participate in the construction of proposed new City. From investments in infrastructure, Power Plants, Freezone, Construction, Energy Sectors, Leisure Development and Civic development, we will welcome institutions with interests in taking up spaces in parts of the proposed city. These commitments will boost planning as well as afford us the opportunity to incorporate their requirements to suit their property, business and lifestyle needs. We want prospective investors to feel like part of the team and to take their place in building this truly significant city in Nigeria's future. We have already contacted some foreign investors through their financial experts that has indicated interest in investing to the tune of $1.5Billion, and Non Circumvention, Non-Disclosure & Working Agreement (NCNDWA) has also be signed for further processing. Our Technical partners/consultants are poised to render professional services in the areas of drafting all relevant proposals, Master plans designs, full information technology survey and development budgets on mutual understanding upon provision of running cost, why awaits the appropriate draw-down schedule of the $1.5Billion from the already contacted investors thereto. All we need now is a reliable and credible Africans in DIASPORA to jointly fund the short term plan (preliminaries) of the proposed project and you automatically become a stakeholder in the project and the new special Purpose Vehicle Entity (SPVE) thereto; specifically to jointly manage and own the City as a co-promoter. the short term funding will enable us access the $1.5Billion from the already contacted investors to implement the medium and partly the long. terms plans/phases. Do well to lead your support and/or partnership as well as connecting other like-minded Africans in DIASPORA to be part of this vision throughout the planning and implementation process. NB: Details about the proposed City site location, full project concept presentation and the Short term plan and other information will be provided to you after signing a Non Circumvention, Non-Disclosure & Working Agreement (NCNDWA) upon receipt of your favorable response and officially Letter of Interest as regards the PROJECT.

Olouchegoun Chams Linkpon

Olouchegoun Chams Linkpon The Benin Alliance of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut (501c3 non-profit) announces the introduction of DANXOMƐ DRUMMING AND DANCING IN HARLEM, an educational program and cultural center focusing on the dancing and drumming traditions of Danxomɛ, the African kingdom in present-day BENIN REPUBLIC, West Africa. Danxomɛan dance and drumming styles such as ZENLI, ADJOGBO, GUELEDE, TIPINTI, KAKA, AGBADJA, MASSE GOHOUN,and TCHINKOUME, and the accompanying instruments,belong to an old and proud royal court tradition which is distinct from those found in other parts of West Africa. Many of these cultural practices traveled with the slave trade, and can be found in syncretized forms throughout the Americas, from New Orleans to Haiti to Brazil. The program will be primarily geared toward youth under the age of 16, especially those of African heritage, but will be open to lovers of dance and music of any age and background. One of its primary goals is to bring the culture of Harlem, the capital of the global African diaspora, closer to the culture of Danxomɛ, which is one of the most foundational and most spiritual West African cultures, though largely unknown in the U.S. The history of the kingdom of Danxomɛ is rich and is reflected in the musical repertoire, for example the account of the king’s legendary female military regiment, the AMAZONS. When the French colonized the region in the early 20th century, the colony became known as Dahomey. The instructors of Danxomɛ Drumming and Dancing in Harlem will be master drummers and dancers from Benin Republic, including those from the Ballet National. The center will also include storage for musical instruments and costumes, and a shop selling African-made instruments. Once established, the future vision of the program is to conduct trips to Benin with New York youth to perform Danxomɛan drumming and dancing styles, and to engage in community service projects. DanxomɛDrumming and Dancing in Harlem will be holding fundraising activities throughout 2014, and welcomes all forms of support (tax deductible). The program is currently in search of a permanent space.

Sameson Louis

Sameson Louis Economic Development for Cap-Haïtien (EDCH) is a non-profit, development resource organization. It serves as a means to revitalize Cap-Haïtien socially, ecologically and economically. Haiti has been suffering from brain drain. “More Haitian college graduates have left Haiti, per capita, than any other country in the world. When you think of the talent that Haiti has produced that benefits us and others, what we want to do is make it possible for any bright, young, ambitious Haitian to stay home and to build his or her country” (Secretary Clinton). In times of crises, foreigners often represent Haiti in the media and speak on behalf of the Haitian people. They explain the Haitian history, but exploit the Haitian culture. They determine the fate of the Haitian people. However, the Haitian presence is critical at this stage, particularly, in communities abroad. Haitians ought to respond to the call of duty and take control of Haiti’s destiny in order to avoid a total national disaster. The goal of this project is to revitalize our communities, making the public domain environmentally friendly, fostering education, providing clean water, creating economic opportunity, establishing a business center, campaigning for proper sanitation and hygiene, serving hot meals twice a day, and administering healthcare services. Haiti is an uncharted territory in terms of public affairs. Typically, foreign personnel and agents spearhead community and economic development. Economic Development for Cap-Haïtien is a Haitian effort that will operate under Haitian beliefs and values. Furthermore, it is a bottom-up initiative. Participative decision-making, consensus building, and ethical leadership are the cornerstones of EDCH. Haiti, traditionally, has a top-down structural society, which means that input from the public or community members is usually unwanted. In an effort to spur a paradigm shift, EDCH engages all community members in the strategic planning process to ensure civic engagement and inclusion.

Shabaka Nzinga Imhotep

Shabaka Nzinga Imhotep I want to unite with other Africans and create Black Power. What is Black Power? Black Power is the African Race having complete ownership and control of all aspects of our existence. (The word, "African," refers to all Black people, everywhere on planet earth. All Black people are Africans! This includes Africans born and raised in the United States of America and elsewhere outside Africa. If you are Black, you are African; even if you are screaming, "I ain't no African!") We choose to have ownership and control in all eleven areas of human activity: 1) Economics, 2) Education, 3) Entertainment, 4) Health, 5) Labor, 6) Law, 7) Politics, 8) Religion, 9) Sex, 10) Spirituality, and 11) War and Counter-War. Black Power includes African ownership and control of land, natural resources, food production; and, the water sources for that food production. We choose to produce all of our food! We choose to own and control the land on which we produce our food. We choose to own and control the water sources for our food. We choose to produce everything for ourselves -- from food to space ships, and everything in between! We choose this ownership and control in African nations and in any non-African nations in which we reside. This is Black Power! How do you like it? Black Power also includes the complete ownership and control of our MINDS. We choose to control the perceptions we have of ourselves.

Since a very young age my father had instilled in me the core values of humanity and principles which I hold as my central belief system. The bottom line is that I’ve always been able to empathize and fight for the underdogs in any situation as I believe that justice and fairness makes no discrimination. However, at the same time I do have one foot stuck in the door of reality with the simple knowledge that the life of this world is not meant to support a Utopian fantasy. However, that does not mean that we, as human beings should stop striving to bring out the best of humanity. This is because there is a very fine line between what makes us animals and what makes us humans and I believe that all of us were born with the right and potential to be human in the best way possible.      Therefore it is the responsibility of those with a voice in this life to balance the huge gap of inequality between themselves and the voiceless and desperate. Hence it follows that any attempt -whether ill informed, ignorant or purposeful – to debase the light of humanity and a person’s rights should be nipped in the bud. As Prophet Muhammad said - "Even as the fingers of the two hands are equal, so are human beings equal to one another. No one has any right, nor any preference to claim over another" and as Gautama Buddha said, “ Light a lamp for someone else, it will also brighten your path” - it is clear to me that firstly, we are humans only to the extent that we help other people transcend their humanity; that is, in ensuring they get the same basic rights as everyone else. Secondly, it is evident that even universal mores of conduct warn against creating class differences as no man is superior to another in terms of fundamental rights.     I believe that the only way to realize the best of my potential in my time here is to help such oppressed, used, abused and powerless peoples who have been denied their fundamental right(s) to realize their full potential as human beings. Things that come easily to some of us like security, sustenance and love; these are universal rights that everyone in the world should be entitled to amongst many others. The breach and denial of such universal values and rights results in a tear in the fabric of humanity that cannot be reconciled nor healed except by us speaking up and doing something about these breaches and denials. Because ultimately that tear in the fabric of humanity is not an individualistic injury- it is one which will maim the collective soul of the world and when that happens it will affect each and everyone of us and take away our common discerning factor: humanity. Objective of seeking job I hope to be able to preserve whatever is left of this once lovely fabric of humanity, and what better way to help my own people who are facing persecution by the Burmese Government than by speaking up and utilizing my legal and inherent analytical and writing skills to help the oppressed and voiceless in any which way that am capable of.

University of PortHarcourt Nigeria CURRICULUM VITAE The University of Port Harcourt was established in 1975 as a College of the University of Lagos, the University of Port Harcourt is one of the avant-garde tertiary institutions with a mandate to empower the Niger Delta region and the country academically. The University gained full autonomous status in 1977 on the premises of an emergent Trade School outside Choba Community as its temporary site, close to its future permanent Site-the University park. Unique UNIPORT as the Institution is popularly known by its many graduates was accredited by the National Universities Commission (NUC), on a Campus status with academic, residential, social and cultural facilities to support a growing Community of Scholars. A five-star Teaching Hospital which has since been completed now serves as a ‘laboratory’’ for the University’s top-rated College of Health Sciences. The University which offers the best in conventional liberal,, equal-opportunity education in the arts, engineering, social sciences and science, is located about 15 kilometres, northwest of the central business district of Port Harcourt City, Nigeria’s second largest seaport and the hub of petroleum and Gas Industry. The University is uniquely located in-between the southern-most part of the West African tropical rain forest, and the northern fringe of wetlands/swamps, rivers and mangrove forests that make the Niger Delta a special tourist attraction. The University is surrounded by rural agrarian and artisan communities that have been positively impacted by its presence in the area.

VOSAW Healthcare System

VOSAW Healthcare System VOSAW has achieved a place for itself on a range of issues that concerns migration and development with a unique focus on African women and taking their vulnerable environments taking forward; Education and Healthcare. We are organization of people, institutions, and resources that deliver health care services to meet the health needs of target populations. Our system consists of all organizations, people and actions whose primary intent is to promote, restore or maintain health. This includes efforts to influence determinants of health as well as more direct health-improving activities. Our health system is therefore more than the pyramid of publicly owned facilities that deliver personal health services. It includes, for example, a mother caring for a sick child at home; private providers; Elderly Healthcare, behaviour change programmes; vector-control campaigns; health insurance organizations; occupational health and safety legislation. It includes inter-sectoral action by health staff, for example, encouraging the ministry of education to promote female education, elderly Healthcare, a well known determinant of better health. Health care reseach, campaigns training of Healthcare providers.

VOSAW Heathcare System

VOSAW Heathcare System I am a social activist, Healthcare spercialist in the field of elderly and reseacher into global ageing innovation and care. My motivation and strong ambition towards the health sector in Ghana started some years ago when my father in Ghana was sick. I went immediately to Ghana and discovered that he would need an operation. The hospitals were so under stocked (or under developed) that blood which was needed to be brought from another hospital had to be transported by my younger sister. I was astounded at how the health system operated in Ghana. Thinking of my father and the under developed health care situation in Ghana, I am eager to offer my health care services in Ghana. I want to establish a health care institution for the elderly in Ghana. I have recognized the links to my commitment, and I am convinced that with my Western knowledge and my years of working experience, I can improve the lives and welfare of elderly people in Ghana During the projects I carried out in the past, I experienced that many elderly living in Accra show already symptoms of diseases that can have serious consequences if they are not receive the treatment and medicine they need. This can have serious consequences on their social living, health situation and age expectations. Most of the elderly are confined to their homes without help. There is not enough awareness, prevention, and treatment on elderly diseases as diabetic and Alzheimer; not inside or outside the hospital and health care institutions. There is also not enough knowledge of humane care and palliative care for the elderly . Products & Services Health Social and wellfare care institution offers health care services with a strong focus on eldery and vunerable people; (1) Training of geriatric nurses package shall mean the social service of recruiting and development of skill in the profession of geriatricians and carergivers for the terminally ill persons. (2) Elderly and terminally ill care services shall mean the service of assigning trained geriatricians to homes of the elderly (3) offering healthcare services; blood collection to test for disesase that are common dor elderyt people (diabetici, cholestrol, …)

World Child Cancer

World Child Cancer About Child Cancer World Child Cancer was established in 2007 to improve curative and palliative care for children with cancer in the developing world. Put simply, we treat children with cancer not fortunate enough to live in the developed world. And where treatment isn’t possible, we provide effective pain relief. We do this by twinning our network of international hospitals and volunteer specialists with teams on the ground. The great thing about this is, not only do we provide access to expert treatment, we also help build local knowledge. To find out more information please visit our website www.worldchildcancer.org OVERVIEW OF CHILDHOOD CANCER: - Approximately, 200,000 children are diagnosed with cancer worldwide. - Childhood cancer is curable in around 80% of cases in developed countries but in developing countries the survival rate is often less than 10%. - Many childhood cancers can be cured in low and middle income countries with inexpensive drugs and simple procedures which have been known to doctors for decades. - However, most children with cancer in these countries are either not diagnosed or fail to get adequate treatment - that means 100,000 children die unnecessarily each year. Worst still, many die without any effective pain relief - something that would be considered unacceptable in the developed world. Imagine a child dying of cancer in Germany, France or the UK only being given paracetamol as pain relief...or perhaps, nothing at all. CURRENT PROJECTS: - Our projects span the globe with projects in places like Colombia, Cameroon, the Philippines and Malawi - World Child Cancer has secured funding from the UK Government to extend the projects that the charity supports in BANGLADESH and GHANA - We are currently trying to embark on an awareness campaign within both diaspora communities across the UK and the developed world. - It is crucial to us that we extend the message that CHILDHOOD CANCER IS CURABLE - We are a small charity and we want to extend the hand of friendship to community groups, individuals, schools, hospitals, government agencies and others to not only spread the word about World Child Cancer and our mission but to gain further insight into attitudes, policies and the future of diaspora in the UK.

michael tannassee

michael tannassee I have no business ,, nor do I know anything about business ,, I am a journalist with an engineering background ,, from which ,, with the combination of the latter ,, I created a "device" from global research for "total" foot care ,, for anyone on the planet who wear a shoe ! the device is unique ,, for which I have "patent pending" ,, and is guaranteed to deliver 3 distinct benefits ,, every time it's used just 5 minutes before stepping out of the shower after every shower ! the product will become a "fixture" in every bathroom..... here is a link to see this one of a kind product that will have NO competition ,, since ,, if "google" is engaged to search for foot care products ,, nothing will be found to compare ,, relative to price ,, for benefits ! there is an impressive intellectual property ( IP ) to back it up ! the link.... https://youtu.be/9RSfMbAYUUo if there is anyone with an inkling to invest in a product that has a world wide market ,, beginning with the Caribbean ,, this will fill that void ,, since we are a shoe wear civilization ,, and I don't foresee us as humans changing this need ,, thus making the foot care industry one that is "recession proof" ,, as is amply given in this Global research report........ Global Foot Care Products Market to Reach US$3.53 Billion by 2017, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc. Share Article GIA announces the release of a comprehensive global report on Foot Care Products markets. The global market for foot care products is forecast to reach US$3.53 billion by the year 2017. Diabetics, ageing population and product innovations are major forces propelling growth in the market. Gradual revival of the economy, increasingly active lifestyles, consumer confidence and rise in over-the-counter (OTC) self medication products will provide fuel for further market expansion. Foot Care Products: A Global Strategic Business Report San Jose, California (PRWEB) March 07, 2012 Follow us on LinkedIn – Footwear plays an important role in today’s fast paced, hectic life. People residing in different locations have unique styles of wearing foot-related products. Americans are known to wear shoes only for style, often neglecting comfort and thereby adding to foot problems. On the other hand, Europeans are seen to focus on both elements of style as well as comfort. Some of the common foot ailments include heel pain, nail problems, blisters, pain in the balls of the feet, and ingrown toenails. Fast changing lifestyles and fashions have increased skin exposure in the foot, therefore helping the foot care products in expanding their scope. Consumer interest in the foot care products which cleanse, moisturize, exfoliate and provide cosmetic treatments is proving to be breeding grounds for path-breaking innovations and enhanced products. The immediate need of the hour centers around specialized foot care products such as overnight foot repair ointments, creams, cleansing lotions and sloughing scrubs. Two main drivers, the diabetic and the aging baby boomers are primarily driving the foot care market. Aging individuals are more prone to foot problems including calluses, corns and foot pain. The HMOs normally do not cover podiatry, thereby leaving the market open for the aging baby boomers, who generally engage in self-care for their foot problems. Thus, demand for superior-quality and highly advanced foot care for the individuals falling in the 50-plus age bracket is on the rise. Product innovations have taken the foot care market to a new high, with drug stores ranking among the most profit-making retail outlets. In a trend, which bodes well for the mass-market retail stores, the foot care category emerged from a prescription-driven to a consumer-driven one, therefore placing the groundwork for new innovations in the category. The foot care Private Label category remained fairly immune to the recent economic turmoil and is currently accelerating at top gear within all segments, including specialty devices and treatments such as corn remover pads or gel inserts. Latest and sophisticated technologies are evolving in the category, and the foot care product innovation is propelling rapid growth in the private label segment. Moreover, suppliers prefer to stock more of private label products instead of the less-popular brands, further bolstering demand for private label brands. Atena and Premier are few of the popular private label foot care brands that reported continued growth in sales despite the financial downturn. Asia-Pacific spurred by huge population base, rising number of diabetics and increase in disposable income captures a sizeable chunk of the global market, as stated by the new market research report on Foot Care Products. The region is also expected to gather steam over the years and race ahead at the overall fastest compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of about 4.5% through 2017. The larger Medications segment is growing at a brisk pace compared to the devices market, spurred by the need for immediate foot care and a wider consumer base spanning across varying age and demographic profiles. The device segment users generally comprise older consumers who tend to stop purchases during tight financial conditions, thereby leading to an erratic growth trend. Key players profiled in the report include Aetrex Worldwide, Inc., Alva-Amco Pharmacals, Inc., Chattem, Inc., Coty, Inc., Combe Incorporated, Dr Foot, Dreamyfeet Footcare Products, and Foot Express. The research report titled “Foot Care Products: A Global Strategic Business Report” announced by Global Industry Analysts Inc., provides a comprehensive market overview, impact of recession, current trends, key growth drivers, recent industry activity, and profiles of major/niche global market participants. The report provides annual sales estimates and projections for the years 2009 through 2017 in value (US$) terms for geographic markets including, US, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of World. Key product segments analyzed include Devices and Medications. The study also provides historic data for an insight into market evolution over the period 2003 through 2008.
