Working with Semai was exceptional. They delivered a professional end product that was incredibly useful for us, the donor and the larger Nigerian diaspora community. They have an incredible understanding and background on effective methodologies and guide you through the process. It was a pleasure working with them.

Semhar is the go-to when it comes to anything diaspora. She has a truly unique set of experiences and knowledge that enables her to adapt information to a range of audiences and settings. When it came to offering a training on diaspora leadership, there was no question that Semhar was the right instructor. We did a successful pilot with Semai Consulting during Global Diaspora Week 2014 and then ran a popular workshop series in summer of 2015. We will definitely work with Semhar again.

We were impressed with Semai’s knowledge, flexibility and commitment. Semhar and her team provided outreach and advocacy strategies for African women’s rights as a lead up to the US-Africa Summit in Washington, D.C. and helped us create products for our supporters and target new audiences, including young people and the African diaspora. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Semhar and would work with her again.

The services provided by Semai Consulting and Semhar are valuable and important to the development community. After an advisory conversation, I had the necessary insight that allowed me to craft a strategy to better engage with the African Diaspora. The conversation and feedback were priceless in that I saved a lot of time from having to “figure it out myself”. If you are trying to navigate and better understand different global diasporas, Semai Consulting is your answer.

Attending these workshops on Diaspora Leadership, given by someone who epitomizes those two words, was an amazing experience for me. Being new to this space armed with only the passion to work on diaspora issues, Semhar’s workshops showed me how to apply this in practice. The examples and guidance she gave me and the other attendees facing similar issues were very valuable.
