“It’s been a really heavy two days. Nomatter how many times death happens, we never get used to it and it’s always hard to accept.

We are not owners of our lives, we are simply custodians, mere stewards of time that God has entrusted in our care.

Diaspora Death: No Cover, Common Excuses Written by Tose Gava
Friday 26 June 2020 14:09
IN my previous blog; Diaspora Death: Are You Covered?
I sought to confront consequences of failure to plan for one’s end of
life expenses due to a notional fib that death is a taboo subject. I
cited Mohammed Ali’s big send-off in making the point that a funeral is
not just about getting rid of the human remains; it’s more about giving
the deceased a dignified send-off, giving your survived loved ones a
closure, and a chance to celebrate your life. As promised, in this… Read More

Burial Societies – The Collapse Risks Written by Tose Gava
Friday 19 May 2017 11:20
BURIAL Societies are a phenomenon
gripping the diaspora communities right now. This is galvanised by the
reality on the ground. Over ten years ago it was rare to hear of
diaspora death but now it’s a daily occurrence. Advancing age,
overworking, bad eating habits, accidents are all factors worsening the
diaspora mortality rates.
A burial society is a form of not-for-profit friendly society or
mutual scheme. Needless to say, burial societies should not be formed
for personal gain of the founders. Sadly, some founders treat… Read More

challenges- power dynamics and negotiating space in families
Are you after power? Do you like to be powerful?
Many people find it difficult to answer this question and will skirt around
before giving a non-committal response or a confusing answer. For those who are
familiar with work by CitizensUK (CUK) and the Industrial Areas foundation(IAF)
the answer is a straight and unequivocal- yes, I want power. Why, because per
Oxford dictionary power is described as the ability to do something. It is my
submission that we live in a world full of challenges and we are always trying
to… Read More

Diaspora challenges: Death & Final Statement Written by Jeff Sango
Thursday 23 February 2017 5:39
THE conclusion sums it all. Be it a pastor preaching, an academic
presenting a paper, the late Steve Jobs saying his last words on his
death bed about the vanity of life, the conclusion sums it up.
We could have been born in a poor family, struggled to attain
education, got a good job or built a successful business, the end forms
the last statement. As a people, we seem to have very short memories
and, oftentimes, conveniently decide to remember the last thing. He… Read More

There are additional covers that can be added to Life Cover and these enhance the overall protection because Life Cover on its own does not cover eventualities like incapacity due to injury or illness or loss of income due to redundancy. So, one can take other cover over and above the life cover:
Every Diasporan originally from any of the following countries (by birth, by descent, by naturisation, by marriage, by registration) qualifies to be covered and you can cover yourself in the diaspora and your loved ones back home or anywhere in the world:
More and more countries will be added as we go along.
