Africa at Work: Interning in Eritrea to Support Education

By Sesen Paulos

Original Post on African Development Jobs:



Mars Keflom's
passion for African development took her to Eritrea in 2012. Over a six month period she interned with the office of the National Union of Eritrean Youth and Students (NUEYS), which matches diaspora youth with meaningful volunteer opportunities.  Keflom was placed at the St. Mary's school in Asmara where she taught English to fourth and fifth graders. Her experience not only drew her closer to her heritage but also solidified her commitment to education. Currently in her final year at University of Cincinnati, she hopes to use her degree in international development to further contribute to Africa's development.

Introducing NUEYS’ Program on Diaspora Youth Participation


An initiative of the National Union of Eritrean Youth and Students (NUEYS), the Diaspora Youth Participation program organized under the NUEYS Foreign Affairs Department, aims at making it easier for youth in the Diaspora to participate in their country’s development through sustainable projects.

NUEYS encourages youth in the Diaspora to contribute to the DEAIMS Database
Eritrean Youth - Diaspora Eritrean Youth

In cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the State of Eritrea, the National Union of Eritrean Youth and Students (NUEYS) encourages Eritrean youth in the Diaspora to contribute to the development of their country first off by filling out a profile for the Department of Eritreans Abroad Information Management System (DEAIMS Database).

By filling out their profile and submitting it, they include valuable information towards a comprehensive Diaspora Database System and become part of a pool for agents and partners for development in their homeland.

As a remedy to the ‘Brain Drain’ suffered by Eritrea and many other developing countries, the Eritrean Diaspora can play a crucial role as a pool for agents and partners for development in their homeland, especially in critical sectors such as education, health, technology and business.
