The African Diaspora Network announces the creation of jamojamo.com an on-line social network community for Africans in the Diaspora irrespective of their country of origin.
jamojamo.com is a unique social network site inspired by the personal experiences of founder Geremie Sawadogo who grew up as an immigrant child in the Cote d’Ivoire and has been living in the USA for the last 27 years. Commenting on the creation of jamojamo.com, he says: “I created the site to offer a platform where Africans from the Diaspora can meet, network, self improve, contribute to the development of Africa while also helping each other by sharing resources and ideas on a variety of issues that matter to Africans from the Diaspora.“
jamojamo.com is full of easy-to-use features that allow members to design their own profiles with the option of adjusting privacy settings, upload photos and videos, post stories and blogs and even chat in real time via text or video without the need to upload any additional software. Members of jamojamo will be able to read news from back home-including all 53 African countries; engage in moderated discussions on a variety of topics of interest to them; apply for a job in Africa; explore volunteering opportunities back home; and listen to their favorite African songs.
Most importantly, members can easily create groups and post events for their associations to promote their activities. As more groups and associations use jamojamo.com to post their activities, Africans everywhere in the Diaspora will be able to easily access information about activities that other Africans all over the world are planning and carrying out, further creating a “Diaspora community”, facilitating networking and information exchange among Africans in the Diaspora.
As the membership of the network grows, Sawadogo expects jamojamo.com to give a bigger voice to the African Diaspora on matters of importance to them. He also plans to leverage the size of the membership and its purchasing power to secure group discounts for much consumed services in travel, communication, shipping of goods and money transfers.
Geremie Sawadogo is currently a Senior Human Resource Officer in Washington DC, USA. His past professional experiences include being Program Manager of global mobility at the Work Bank; Associate Professor of international education and intercultural management at the School for International Training; Director of International Education; and Country Director for the US Peace Corps in Benin. Geremie Sawadogo is originally from Burkina Faso and holds a Ph.D. in international and comparative education from the University of Iowa, USA.
