Help Bring People Home

Finding that first job is never easy.  Sometimes, you have to leave your hometown to get a start on life, but home is home.  Returning means being reunited with family and friends, and starting a new chapter in ones life.

In coming home, expatriates have a wealth of experiences that make their communities more competitive.  At the same time, their longtime connections to their community help preserve its values and traditions, whilst their experiences elsewhere also help them improve the quality of life for all.

If you want to see more families on your block, elders being looked after by their loved ones, or more leaders in your community, this is the fund for you.

I know my own deficiencies, one of which is that I had lived away from America for such a long time. It's called expatriate.

James Hillman

I have to put down roots where I decide to stay. It wasn't enough for me to be an expatriate Indian in Canada. If I can't feel that I can make social, political and emotional commitments to a place, I have to find another place.

Bharati Mukherjee

I'm a chronicler of Negroland, a participant-observer, an elegist, dissenter, and admirer; sometime expatriate, ongoing interlocutor.

Margo Jefferson

Every dreamer knows that it is entirely possible to be homesick for a place you’ve never been to, perhaps more homesick than for familiar ground.
