The Kenya Diaspora Alliance (KDA) is a Registered Trust, and a Federation of over thirty (30+) Diaspora organizations with a nominal combined membership of about 250,000 Kenyans across the globe. KDA’s affiliated memberships include: welfare, cultural, religious, political, philanthropic, educational, professional and business associations, among others.
The Diaspora Investment Club (DICL) is KDA’s business and investment arm. It is registered as a limited liability company, presently with start-up businesses nominally worth US$ 4 million in real estate, capital markets, tech-novation (mobile apps), and business/investment consultancy.
DICL and KDA are desirous to up-scale their online presence through innovative, content-rich, interactive, and captive Internet and web platforms.
Moreover, KDA in conjunction with the public sector Stakeholders and other stake holders are planning a major Kenya Diaspora Homecoming Convention (KDHC) to be held at the DAYSTAR UNIVERSITY, Nairobi Campus (at the Auditorium) along Valley Road on 9 - 11th December, 2015.
Kenya Diaspora Survey
You are invited to participate in an online survey about the political engagement of diaspora Kenyans. Participation in the study typically takes about 20 minutes and is strictly confidential. The survey collects several types of information: basic demographic data; information about which media sources you consult; your logistical preferences for diaspora voting; factors you are likely to consider when voting; and perspectives on Kenyan politics. Through this research, we hope to gain a better understanding of how the voting rights of diaspora Kenyans can best be implemented.
Participants who complete the survey will have the option of entering a random drawing for one of ten $50 cash prizes. Contact information will be collected for this purpose but will not be shared and will not be linked in any way to survey responses.
Please let us know if you have any questions. We hope you will agree to take the survey, and that you will share the link to the survey with other Kenyans living in the diaspora.
