Africans in the Diàspora have historically helped the continent in many different areas.
They help in independence movements, policy formulation, and other engagements at the macro level.
Then at the micro level Africans in the Diàspora build businesses, support families and other institutions.
It is in keeping with this tradition of Africans in the Diàspora making a difference that Idia College Alumni North America (ICANA) made a donation of COVID-19 fighting materials to their Alma Mata in Nigeria
Located in Benin City in Nigeria, Idia College has educated hundreds of thousands of young Nigerian women who have grown to become some of society’s most influential personalities locally and internationally who feel a compelling need to give back to society.
That’s why ICANA was formed. The prosperous organization consists of former students living all across North America and their donation is only the beginning according to Anita Uwa Oghagbon from the class of 1982.
The current students were filled with joy as they took turns receiving their gifts and thanked their fellow students who have come through where they are.
In an interview with DNT, ICANA President Kemi Moyede (Class of 1982) said having identified many projects that needs immediate attention, the organization “is laser-focused and dedicated to implementing projects for the benefit of” their Alma Mata
Diàspora Network Television calls for the formation of more of such groups to contribute to the development of Africa at the micro and possibly the macro levels
