For the Great Lakes Region in Africa (Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi and DR Congo) we have set up several experts meeting with whom we organised a two-day diaspora conference in Novermber 2015. The Great Lake project aims to empower the diaspora groups from the region living in Europe and is working on the establishment of a radio station in Goma: Radio Voix des Grands Lacs.
We are very excited to announce that we are now working on the creation of a second conference which will be held in November 2016.
