The project is expected to create about 5,000 direct and indirect jobs and open opportunities in Africa and beyond to boost tourism development.
About the African Diaspora Development Institute:
The African Diaspora Development Institute was born out of the desire to bring Africa to the world and the world to Africa. There currently is no one resource to easily find information about Africa. ADDI aims to become that resource.
We have come to the realization that the current status of the African economy is due to the mass exodus of the African Diaspora out of Africa. The exodus began with the loss of Africa’s children through slavery 400 years ago, followed by the recent migrants who left Africa in search of greener pastures or running away from famine and wars.
The children of Africa have ended up in North America, Europe, and Asia. African Heads of State are calling on all people of African Descent (African Diaspora) to come back home and build the Africa we want.
