Darren Sammy has been considered a lucky man to have captained the West Indies, once the champions of the world and the team considered by many to be the greatest that ever played the game. Sammy was a good player, but in the opinion of many, he was not one good enough to make the Test team or to captain the team. Sammy, by his own admission, was p

SOMETHING is definitely lacking and not good in Berbice Cricket and the current leaders of the Berbice Cricket Board are totally clueless and have no knowledge of how to administer the game and to lift it to a higher level. As a former administrator of Berbice cricket, it pains my heart to see and observe the poor planning, no vision and the lack o
  West Indies master T20 batsman Chris Gayle spoke to reporters at (Bangladesh Cricket Board) BCB Academy Ground and the opener suggested that he wanted to entertain the fans. The smashing opener said that his intention is always to entertain the fans and his promise would no doubt induce excitement among BPL fans. “Most time I go out to bat m

 (Reuters) - The gradual decline of West Indian cricket is hardly a new phenomenon but the latest capitulation of a once-dominant test match power has brought genuine expressions of sadness throughout the sport. The defeat by an innings and 209 runs in the first day-night test in England at Edgbaston at the weekend left both Caribbean legends
WHY is Cricket West Indies tampering with history by renaming the only regional entity that has truly united us for more than a century? Sure, you can go ahead and tinker with the name of the governing body, changing it from the West Cricket Board to Cricket West Indies, although that won’t change most people’s perception of that divisive orga

Guyana Diaspora Online Forum

We have a large database of Guyanese worldwide.  Most of our readers are in the USA, Canada, and the UK.  Our Blog and Newsletter  would not only carry  articles and videos on Guyana, but also other articles on a wide range of subjects that may be of interest to our readers in over 200 countries, many of them non-Guyanese  We hope that you like our selections.

It is estimated that over one million Guyanese, when counting their dependents, live outside of Guyana.  This exceeds the population of Guyana, which is now about 750,000.  Many left early in the 50’s and 60’s while others went with the next wave in the 70’s and 80’s.  The latest wave left over the last 20 years. This outflow of Guyanese, therefore, covers some three generations. This outflow still continues today, where over 80 % of U.G. graduates now leave after graduating.  We hope this changes, and soon.

Guyanese, like most others, try to keep their culture and pass it on to their children and grandchildren.  The problem has been that many Guyanese have not looked back, or if they did it was only fleetingly.  This means that the younger generations and those who left at an early age know very little about Guyana since many have not visited the country.  Also, if they do get information about Guyana, it is usually negative and thus the cycle of non-interest is cultivated.

This Guyana Diaspora Online Forum , along with its monthly newsletter, aims at bringing Guyanese together to support positive news, increase travel and tourism in Guyana and, in general, foster the birth of a new Guyana, which has already begun notwithstanding the negative news that grabs the headlines.  As the editor and manager of the publication, I am committed to delivering Blog entries and Newsletters that are politically balanced, and focused on the positive ideas we wish to share and foster among Guyanese.
