My Dear Brothers & Sisters
As reigning Miss Zambia UK and your goodwill ambassador, I am assisting the International Organization for Migration (IOM) to disseminate relevant information that can be of interest to all Zambians living abroad.
I would like to invite you to complete a Survey that can be accessed at: http://www.zoomerang.com/Survey/WEB22AGMN8Y5C7
You may be aware that our country Zambia is currently experiencing an improved business and economic environment with growing investor confidence. With an ever-growing population of Zambians in the Diaspora, and each one of us with the necessary intellectual, cultural, financial, human and social capital, I believe it is time for us to effectively participate in the development of our country to make Zambia a globally competitive and economically prosperous nation.
I am therefore, delighted to inform you that the Government of Zambia (GRZ) is making efforts to effectively engage Zambians abroad who may be interested in participating in the development of our beloved country.
To facilitate this process, the GRZ has established the Diaspora Liaison Office (DLO), under the Office of the President (State House) in order to provide the information that Zambians abroad might be seeking in regard to participation in national development. To be able to gather the necessary information for this purpose, the IOM is assisting GRZ in communicating with members of the Zambian Diaspora through a short survey. This Survey is aimed at finding out more about the wishes of Zambians living abroad who may be interested in contributing to national development, as well as to gather information on the demographics, professional skills, available resources, interests and experiences of Zambians living abroad.
I am sharing this information with confidence, and I encourage you as members of the Zambian Diaspora to participate in this important Survey. I have been assured that all personal information is strictly confidential and will not be released without prior consent of the respondents.
I invite you to visit http://www.statehouse.gov.zm/index.php/zambia-diaspora-survey for more information about the Survey.
It is my sincerest hope that as Zambians in the Diaspora we can seize this opportunity to make a meaningful contribution to change in our country, Zambia.
Thank you in advance for taking part in the survey and for spreading the word!
With kind regards
Andella Chileshe Matthews
Reigning MISS ZAMBIA UK
