A project started by Diaspora Kenyans over 10 years ago is on track to relocate 2,000 Diaspora Kenyans from Diaspora to Kenya in next 5 years. The project plan is to create 20,000 new jobs with 10% or 2,000 jobs taken by Diaspora. The project is currently progressing through the NEMA - Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA). The Diaspora Kenyans both in the U.S and in Kenya developing the project are excited that they are part of creating a project that gives jobs to Kenyans and has a Diaspora to Kenya relocation plan.

The Diaspora to Kenya relocation plan is similar to the relocation plan that many in the U.S. Diaspora applied when relocating and settling in the U.S. On arrival to the U.S., every person relocating needed a source of income so as to meet their daily food, housing, personal and family needs. Thanks to the U.S entrepreneurs who were creating jobs; many of those who settled in the Diaspora would get jobs and meet their daily needs from the income from the jobs.  

Diaspora who desire to return to Kenya have been able to come up with a good relocation plan. The Diaspora working on the DUT project in Kenya say, “Without a good relocation plan that involves knowing where your daily income will come from, relocating back to Kenya is very difficult.”

The DUT jobs creation and housing development is set up in a way to enable the person who wants to return to Kenya to be part of the project and create their job in Kenya. Through creation of 20,000 jobs the Diaspora involved in the creation can create their job, income and even the home town they want to return to. For every 20 jobs created, 1 job will go to the Diaspora returning back who are part of the project.

Those returning back are not only going to be getting jobs; they will also be bringing their experience to in the job and will be training others. One of the DUT developers who is past 60 years says this is the best plan for those who want to work a few years and then retire. Adding that before finding this project he was trying to figure out how to relocate and was not coming up with a viable plan.  

The jobs and work incorporated in the Diaspora University Town development includes: Jobs at Diaspora University both faculty and staff; jobs at the Diaspora University Medical Hospital Center of diverse healthcare professionals; industrial and research jobs in the ongoing plan to develop a medicine and vaccines production plant; and, thousands of Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs) open for manufacturing, services, banking and goods production.
