The ‘repats’

As Africa’s middle class starts to emerge, propelled by growth and urbanisation, many diaspora Africans are choosing to return to the continent.

Many of these returnees, known as ‘repats’, are highly educated and skilled, and while they choose to take a chance on new opportunities back ‘home’, the process of adjusting to mentalities and business practices can be brutal.

This series initially focused on the female ‘repats’ coming to the continent but will evolve with time.

Take a journey across the continent meeting the many ‘repats’ changing careers, taking risks and ultimately, coming ‘home’.
