Description

Experience Level: Expert
I need an indept, sharp-wit, crisp, well-researched article written basically on this facebook status message: \"We (Africans in the diaspora) need to stop waxing one excuse after the other. There are opportunities for growth in Africa. As an experienced \'returnee\', note, there is NOTHING to fear. Risks are there to be mitigated & surpassed. It\'s time to come back to the Motherland\" - that was my facebook status message a few days ago which garnered interest from a group of friends who now want a proper article on this.

Basically, my friends\' school alumni are commemorating their Golden Jubilee celebrations of the school, a leading Cameroonian secondary academic institution which has a thriving alumni organisation in the UK. The secondary theme of the celebration focuses on career development of their alums. In particular, they have a focus on educating members resident in the UK about career opportunities and the challenges of returning to and working in Africa with a view to incentivising skills transfer back to Africa.

The aim of the article will be essentially to showcase the many career, investment, business opportunities that Africa has for Africans in the diaspora who think there is nothing left to come back home to. To suggest how Africa\'s \'repatriates\' are benefiting from coming back home and call for those still abroad to move back and contribute to the development of their countries/continent.

A huge focus should be on west/central Africa particularly on Cameroon and Nigeria for Africans in the USA, UK and other parts of Europe.

Please know a thing or two about Africans living in the diaspora, their mentality and approach to moving back home as well as the African economic and socio-political sphere. if not, the research will come in handy.

I am looking to have a 2-page very sharp, educative yet humorous piece.

Must be completed, revised and submitted latest June 12.
