The Diaspora Global Initiative is a 501 (c) 3 (Tax ID: 27-3273058) Non-Profit Global Platform with the following mission:
We are committed to Build a Better World through the Power of the Soccer Game.
Education is a basic human right and yet those who need education the most - children living in poverty - are the least likely to attend and complete school. In Cameroon for example, quality education is at the center of a nation's progress, and it is also enshrined in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals which 193 countries have recently committed to support. Still, many of those schools have no adequate structure - where students are squeezed into dark and crumbling mud huts or are taught under trees when the weather permits or must walk multiple miles to a neighboring village or can't attend school at all.
The region of Nord-Ouest has a population of 1,900,547 (Geo-Names) and 10% out of school children between the ages of 7-14 according to the Demographic and Health Survey. The region needs schools to sustain its needs and keep our promises made to children around the world. The Diaspora Global Initiative has broken ground on its first school in the region. The three-story building is comprised of 12 small set classrooms to accommodate 300 K-6 Elementary School age children.
