Database Project

Our General Assembly constituted the Database Project Committee at its General Meeting in March 2015. The goal is to create a database for Nigerians in diaspora in Belgium and Luxembourg. The project has been planned to capture data of all Nigerians (not only NIDO members) living in Belgium and Luxembourg. That means that it will serve as a platform for dialogue and communication across our various organisations and associations. Doubtless, it is intended to promote harmony, peace and unity amongst Nigerians in our communities. This project is in line with NIDO mandate to organise/harness the skills and talent of Nigerians in diaspora for the development of our Motherland.

A databank of residents and citizens of a country is a major tool for economic development purposes, and serves as a means of dialogue and planning. The private sector will be able to tap into the database to meet its need for human resources from the diaspora, where a huge number of Nigerian competence and capacity reside. It will also serve the Embassy as well as our government, which regularly call for data on Nigerians in our communities.

Global Database of Nigerians in Diaspora

When Nigerians in Diaspora Organisation (NIDO) was conceived in the year 2001, one of the major expectations from her, was to create a Database of Nigerian skills abroad to enable the Nation tap into it for national development.

The Global Database of Nigerians in Diaspora (GDN) was officially launched in the month of February 2009 and now povides all Nigerian citizens abroad with the opportunity to provide the nation with information on the skill set they could provide for nation building.
