Unity is the paramount aspect in any society, organization as well as to a country. “Strength comes with Unity” is an ideal statement and true as put. Unity of purpose represents togetherness and having every problem solved by the power of unity. Therefore, it is standing together for all aspects of life that tie all to their greatest ideals. Unity always leads to a melodious and fulfilling kind of life for all and more so improves our ways of being together as a community.
Many people in the Diaspora still do not understand the importance of uniting and seeking answers collectively to issues that affect us, but instead, chose to isolate themselves while suffering alone. They constantly keep on fighting over insignificant things and in the end, become desperate for they will not seek help from the very people they abandoned.
Others cling to groups whose only agenda is to improve the lives of certain communities but not for all in the Diaspora. They will achieve small dreams, but will never be in a position to handle bigger dreams. They will always be glued to mediocre tribal groupings for selfish gains only.
A people united and focused look forward to work towards a common huge goal instead of satisfying their own selfish or small group agendas. People love their nation as well as their fellow citizens and therefore, it is a fact that they would be able to grow with a better fulfilling lifestyle only when there is unity of purpose.
We always boast of remittances, but the same will only have an impact if there is unity that can enable people to pursue a huge monetary task and do it as a united front and the same will go a long way in the development of our nation Kenya.
ADVANTAGES OF UNITY AND SUPPORT
People in the Diaspora can help one another and provide moral as well as financial support while in problems as opposed to living in isolation for that only make one to feel insecure and eventually leads to lacking confidence.
It is a fact that when we remain united, we may seek guidance from each other for both personal or professional matters and in the end come up with true leaders.
Staying united is good for our growth as well as for the nation’s development. This is also good for the family in particular and all-round development of children.
SOURCE OF INSPIRATION
When we work together, we are motivated and encouraged to work harder. Also, we push each other to accomplish the goals, and this works as a great motivational factor.
When we work together as a team, we are able to accomplish greater goals in life that may not be possible individually.
ACCOMPLISHING A MISSION
Accomplishing a mission becomes much easier when there are more numbers of people involved. Movement for freedom which we have had in Kenya like Mau Mau or during Multiparty era are the best examples. Many social evils and unjust practices have been fought and eradicated in the past only because of unity among people.
DIASPORA ROLE IN BUILDING UNITY
Unity can be achieved if each individual is ready to leave his individual interests and work for the betterment of the Diaspora as a whole. Undoubtedly this spirit must be inborn but a DETERMINED Organization like DNA can play an important role in achieving unity among all in Diaspora worldwide.
A country can never be prosperous if its political system is corrupt and therefore if DNA members can lead the way and be able to identify selfless leaders among themselves and in Kenya then both can tackle head on the war on corruption and make sure that only selfless leaders get elected.
Diaspora can also put the Government on checks through support monitoring groups to ensure that elections are free and fair. They can also through petitions and lobbying make the Government to put in place an autonomous body to oversee elections.
There is a lot of economic disparity in Kenya where the rich people are becoming richer day by day and the poor are getting poorer and poorer. This makes the poor people adopt the criminal tendencies that hinder national development and therefore the government must bridge this gap. As a united Diaspora, we can speed up this process.
People must be educated about many things related to the country’s development and also about the importance of unity. This should be made a part of the school curriculum and also a lot of information disseminated through social media. The DNA is set to participate in civic education and raising awareness on various topics that affect the common mwananchi, through other means like holding homecoming seminars in Kenya.
It is very clear to see that there are many benefits of staying united to accomplish big tasks while relying on the people in times of need and at the same time nurturing youth power to greater heights. We can achieve a lot while improving services to the Diaspora as we shall be part of decision makers in the end. The Unity will not only end in the Diaspora but it will be preached to every citizen who will use that same unity to develop our great country.
If you care for your fellow Kenyans and the generations we are raising here, join us in this exciting journey and together as one united Diaspora, we shall use our combined individual potential to attain the greatest heights possible.
WE FAIL BECAUSE WE DO NOT TRY!
