Year of the Diaspora and “We Gatherin’” homecoming campaign

Country flag

The government designated 2020 the “Year of the Diaspora”, and the year-long, “We Gatherin’” homecoming campaign is its core initiative. The effort materializes the interest and commitment of the government to foster relationships with its communities living abroad. The premise is for Barbadians abroad to return to the island throughout 2020 in a celebration of culture and investment. The campaign seeks to cultivate relationships with Bajans abroad and mobilise their involvement in the country’s economic development through contributions of time, expertise, and investment in enterprise and social causes.
