The celebration of the Black History month is an opportunity for the Back To Kama project team to intensify their actions and promote the return of individuals of African descent to Africa.
“We were elated when President Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana launched “2019 – The Year of Return” and our hope and dream is to have all African countries follow in Ghana’s footsteps.” declared Gbedia Dodo, PhD, leader of the Back to Kama project. “ Our team will intensify its contact with most African embassies worldwide this month to promote our vision and offer our help to further the promotion of the return to Africa (Kama) we initiated 10 years ago.”
“The “Year of Return” of the Ghanean President stimulated a massive migration towards Ghana by many African Americans and others in the Diaspora and is a perfect illustration of what we have visualized to happen” explained Dodo. “Within a year significant benefits were harvested, Ghana saw an estimated 1.2 billion increase in revenue with the creation of new businesses and partnerships. Human and fraternal bonds were also greatly reinforced between the people of Ghana and the Africans from the Diaspora, fostering historical and cultural exchanges.”
For the leader of the Back to Kama project, Black History Month shouldn’t only be a celebration of achievements by African Americans and the time for recognizing the central role of African descendants in U.S. history, it should also be the time to look at their future.
“For 10 years, we have brought a vision of how the success of African Americans and of all African descendants worldwide, can be multiplied if furthered on the African continent” claims Dodo. “Our project wants to encourage all the African nations to look at the economic and societal benefits of the return of the descendants of their stolen sons and daughters, and to not only offer free visa and the rights to abode to all African descendants, but also:
– Encourage all kings and chiefs to welcome them during a traditional ceremony like an African traditional Baptism to facilitate the social integration of the returning sons and daughters giving them a true sense of belonging to a family, a village, a people.
– Ensure that the respective countries, make legislation to attract foreign direct investments (from Black Celebrities, entrepreneurs and others with wealth);
– Implement the Free Trade Zones law signed by the African Union, which will accelerate economic development projects;
– Provide guaranteed tax exemption on income and assets for at least 14 years to all immigrants of Kama (African) descents;
– Provide Banking Secrecy guaranteed by law as in Switzerland;
– Adopt a common currency, for all countries in Kama and promote its financial benefits;
“As a results, these countries will be able to provide free education and free healthcare to the population, adopt the latest sciences and technologies such as biotechnology, nanotechnology, telecommunications, internet education” claims Dodo.
Back To Kama also encourages the welcoming of black prisoners freed from the US prison system. “ Canada and Australia were built on the import of European prisoners.” says Dodo. “African American ex-prisoners could be trained if needed to acquire business entrepreneurship skills and contribute to the development of the welcoming countries.”
The Back to Kama project was initiated in 2009 by Rael, spiritual leader of the Raelian Movement, who said “To save Humanity [from its self-destruction], we must first save Kama…” and saving Kama, start now with its sons and daughters from around the world making their way back home.
