Connecting to Diaspora Communities Through Web Portals: Opportunities and Limitations

by Portal Web Editor last modified Jan 10, 2013 10:02 AM
The formal donor community is increasingly recognizing the diaspora community as a credible and meaningful contributor to development. Given the significant contribution of diaspora communities, a key issue facing the donor community has become how to engage and partner effectively with diasporas? In this area of technological hyper-development, web portals have become omnipresent in any development venture and diaspora-driven development is not different. This seminar will present two such portals--Homestrings, a private investment platform, and Africa Rural Connect, an online global philanthropic network--and examine their effectiveness in engaging diasporas in development.
