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.

NUEYS’ programs for Eritrean youth in the Diaspora not only includes this partnership with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for the DEAIMS database, but many other programs that aim at acquainting the youth with their history, heritage and the role they ought to play when it comes to national affairs.

NUEYS conducts a volunteer program especially for youth in the Diaspora with the aim of enhancing social, cultural and educational exchange among Eritrean youth in Eritrea and among the Diaspora through volunteer work and internships in Eritrea, so as to develop the skills of Eritrean youth for community leadership in Eritrea and abroad. This program aims to strengthen the skills and development of young Eritreans through the facilitation of internships, volunteer work, community service, and national service for Eritreans from the Diaspora and through the support of community based projects in their country of residence upon completion of internships in Eritrea. In other words, this program aims at building youth leaders that would play a positive role in community development not just in Eritrea, but also abroad. It should be noted that NUEYS has thousands of members who volunteer within their communities on a regular basis.

Also included in this program are the Youth Exchange Program and the Skills Transfer Program. For youth who cannot commit a few months for volunteering, NUEYS offers them smaller volunteer tasks that still allow for cultural exchange. The Skills Transfer Program allows a space for those from the Diaspora to share their skills and knowledge with youth in Eritrea. For instance, if a young person from the Diaspora would like to give a workshop, let it be a day long or a week long, NUEYS will provide them with the venue and equipment to conduct this workshop, as well as mobilize youth and students who would be interested in attending the workshop.

Other programs conducted by the NUEYS Foreign Affairs Department that aims at increasing the involvement of Diaspora youth in Eritrea’s development include the Diaspora Youth Participation program, and summer programs like that of the Zura nHagerka (Know Your Country) Tour Program and mobilizing Diaspora youth to participate in the Eri-Youth Festival.

The Diaspora Youth Participation Program focuses on guiding youth in the Diaspora to conduct development projects that contribute to the development of the motherland. NUEYS guides the youth by advising them on which projects are relevant and sustainable to conduct, how they may raise funds for the project, and how to successfully manage the project. NUEYS also acts as a partner to make sure the project is successfully implemented in Eritrea and is promoted through NUEYS’ media channels so that other youth can be encouraged to also contribute to their country’s development.

The Zura nHagerka (Know Your Country) Tour Program, as well as the bi-annual Eri-Youth Festival, aims at familiarizing youth in the Diaspora with their country. It is through these activities that the youth can witness with their own eyes how thousands of young Eritreans in Eritrea are contributing to their country’s development on a daily basis.

The ‘DEAIMS’ Database


Introduction


The Eritrean Diaspora, spread across Europe, North America, Asia, Australia, Middle-East and Africa, is an invaluable asset to both the country of origin and the host country. Equipped with varying competencies, ideas and expertise acquired at home and abroad, Eritreans of the Diaspora carry with them a new vision and represent a positive force of change.


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.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the State of Eritrea has introduced a database system aiming at accommodating the desire of Eritreans in the Diaspora to contribute in the development of their country of origin through their competencies, expertise and experience: ‘DEAIMS’ (Department of Eritreans Abroad Information Management System) strives to identify and assess the actual profiles and resources of the members of the Eritrean Diaspora. In brief, the ‘DEAIMS’ is working hard towards a comprehensive Diaspora Database System which gathers information, such as full name, date of birth, place of birth, country of residence, address, educational and professional background… etc.


Objective of the Database System

Information gathered by DEAIMS is intended to serve as a useful tool for government offices and private institutions in identifying and recruiting the available knowledge and socio-professional resources of Eritreans abroad. The information would help as well, to have more precise data concerning the number of Eritreans residing abroad. The Ministry will ensure that this information will be stored and shared in full respect of privacy and confidentiality.

According to your profile, you might be asked voluntarily or hired to contribute to the development of your country in key sectors such as:
•    Agriculture
•    Construction and Infrastructure 
•    Mining and Energy
•    Business and Commerce
•    Education
•    Health
•    Transportation
•    Law
•    Public Administration and Services
•    Land, Water and Environment management
•    Science and Technology etc…

Who should register?

Any Eritrean in the Diaspora who is 18 years old and above should register. Registration form is available at http://www.nueys.org. Please download the questionnaire in a printed form from the listed websites. Complete and submit the form to the Eritrean Diplomatic or Consular mission in your area. If you would like to send the form through email, please do so by sending it to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Benefits the Database can offer

Once put in the Database, your information will be facilitated by ‘DEAIMS’ and shared accordingly with potential stakeholders, such as government offices and private institutions. The Database will also be instrumental in identifying the exact number of Eritreans living abroad. Consequently, any registered Eritrean may be contacted about various project assignments, job vacancies and entrepreneurial and investment opportunities available in Eritrea.

Privacy will be protected

Gathered profile and contact information will be stored and shared in a strictly confidential manner. They will be used only in strict necessity, as they will be protected under coding numbers. Any registered Eritrean can be removed from the database, if willing, by contacting This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
