NGA Diaspora Project 40/40 is a social impact and creative Diaspora Engagement Initiative with the sole aim of bridging the existing gap between Nigerians living in Nigeria (Homeland) and Nigerians living abroad (Diaspora).
NGA Diaspora Project 40/40 is in active collaborations with the Society of Young Nigerians in Diaspora for International Collaboration and Transnational Engagement, Friends of Nigeria (FON), Paris-France, Diaspora Innovations Institute, Journalists International Forum For Migration (JIFORM), NIDOE-Belgium/Luxembourg chapter, NIDOE-Sweden chapter, and NIDOE-Greece chapter and other NIDO chapters globally.
The NGA Diaspora Project 40/40 is a creative social impact Diaspora engagement project that aims to leverage the symbolism of the number 40 to inspire a new narrative for Nigeria and Nigerians in general.
The first/upper 40; represents 40 years of the “Nigerian Emigration Trends between 1981 – 2021″ the project seeks to highlight the major wave of emigration history of the Nigerian Diaspora specifically narrowing it down from 1981 till 2021 while the second/lower 40; represents 40 diaspora stories which will be crowd-sourced within the Nigerian Diaspora community across the world in order to highlight lessons learned and share migration tips and best practices for young Nigerians.
If you would like to make a contribution back home to the next generation of Nigerians, we enjoin you to kindly share your diaspora story on this project. We have put together a questionnaire to guide you in sharing your story, you can find it on our website https://ngadiasporaproject4040.com/my-diaspora-story
