The African diaspora was the movement of Africans and their descendants to places throughout the world .
In modern times, it is also applied to Africans who emigrate from the continent in order to seek education, employment and better living for themselves and their children.It is widely accepted that this diaspora has the potential to revitalize Africa. Primarily, many academics, NGOs, and websites such as Social Entrepreneurs of the African Diaspora view social entrepreneurship as a tool to be used by the African diaspora to improve themselves and their motherland.

A biology teacher in Mampong Akuapim School for the deaf is in police custody for taking nude pictures of three of his students. Seth Affum Danquah had lured the students into a building outside school premises, stripped them naked before taking the pictures. Two residents who saw the teacher carry out his unbridled pornography effected a citizen’s arrest and handed him over to the Mampong police. Police Commander for Akuapim Mampong, ASP Agyenim Boateng confirmed the incident in an interview with Joy News’ Dzifah Bampoh. According to him, the camera used in the teacher’s escapade was retrieved with graphic pictures of the nude students. “After we screened the camera we really realised that he took some obscene pictures of the three ladies showing part of their nakedness, upwards, specifically, their breasts and other obscene pictures,” he said. He added the suspect admitted taking the nude photographs of the students but did not explain why and to what effect. Affum Danquah has been charged with "unlawful entry" and in "possession of obscene pictures" and will be arraigned before the Mampong Magistrate Court on Friday. Assistant Headmaster of the school, Emmanuel Apernu told Joy News the victims are all students “writing their final paper.” He said the students only obeyed instructions from the teacher. He could not tell what the real intentions of the teacher were. Meanwhile the Ghana Education Service is contemplating dismissing the teacher if found guilty of the allegations. Rosemond Blay, Head of Special Education at the service said the act by the teacher is criminal and is waiting for the police to take action. He said the service will have no choice than to dismiss the teacher if he is found culpable.
