Diaspora Network Television (DNT) is a vision and brainchild of Jermaine Nkrumah whose decades-long advocacy for diaspora engagement has evolved into an unshakable passion. His complete conviction that a more robust set of policy overtures by Ghana and other African countries towards the diaspora communities around the world, at modest costs, has the potential of reaping massive developmental results.
“But it must begin with mutual understanding,” he says, in recognition of the reality that simple misunderstanding between nations and their diaspora forms the basis for mistrust and miscommunication that have combined to separate the two groups. DNT, thus, wants to be the catalyst for the needed improvement in relations that would lead to better collaboration.
