What Our Partners Are Saying

' I have often said migrant academics can participate in their home knowledge economy without returning. The current digital revolution is an opportunity Africa and its education stakeholders and donors should not miss to mitigate brain drain. This needed a third sector organisation such as DIANA ry. "


Seppo H. Prof Emeritus of Higher Education Management & Administration, Finland

"The diaspora is Africa's 6th partner continent and Africa's intellectual diapora is very important in the Continental Education Strategy for Africa (CESA 2016-2025) and the Agenda 2063. This is why we do not relent any effort to collaborate with structured and initiatives to mobilise and reorientate Africa's talent back to Africa; the DIANA ry. "


Professor Sarah Anyang Agbor, Commissioner for Science and Human resources, African Union Commission
