ABOUT

WHAT IS GD4D

Grenada’s Diaspora for Development Project (GD4D) is a project implemented by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in collaboration with IOM – the UN Migration Agency. The project seeks to engage, enable and empower the diaspora with the aim of fostering a transfer of the diaspora’s human, social, economic and cultural capital while enhancing exchanges, communication and strengthening partnerships, to make the diaspora a true partner in the development of Grenada.

Message from Minister of Foreign Affairs

Fellow Grenadians, I count it a great privilege to greet you, every single member of our Diaspora. As I always say, the further away Grenadians go from Grenada, it’s the more patriotic they/we become. Grenada has produced very many illustrious sons and daughters who serve and continue to serve with distinction throughout the Caribbean and internationally and who have a keen interest in giving back to Grenada.

In that light and coming out of numerous consultations since 2008, the Government of Grenada (Ministry of Foreign Affairs) has partnered with the UN International Organization for Migration (IOM) to provide technical assistance to fulfil your wish to document the skills, abilities and qualifications of you, the members of our Diaspora. Using this website our goal is to effectively map the diaspora and gain insight into your willingness to contribute to Grenada’s development agenda, particularly as it relates to facilitating knowledge transfer. This website will also serve as a conduit between Grenadians at home and the diaspora, a one-stop-shop for up-to-date relevant information and coordination of all diaspora activities.

We are also in the process of restructuring the Office of Diaspora Affairs to serve you better. In the coming months, we will be reaching out to you to continue discussions on what you want to see and how you would like to contribute and be supported.

I urge you therefore to participate fully in this exercise, use this website and the related online platforms as avenues for information sharing and feedback. Your voice is integral as we continue to chart a sustainable way forward for our nation.

Thank you; may God bless you. And, may God continue to richly bless Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique.

“The formation of a diaspora could be articulated as the quintessential journey into becoming; a process marked by incessant regoupings, recreations, and reiteration. Together these stressed actions strive to open up new spaces of discursive and performative postcolonial consciousness.”
