There are several conceptual difficulties in defining the African diaspora indeed, in defining the term diaspora. Contemporary theorizations of the term diaspora tend to be preoccupied with problematizing the relationship between diaspora and nation and the dualities or multiplicities of diasporic identity or subjectivity; they are inclined to be condemnatory or celebratory of transnational mobility and hybridity. In many cases, the term diaspora is used in a fuzzy, ahistorical, and uncritical way all manner of movements and migrations between countries and even within countries are included and no adequate attention is paid to the historical conditions and experiences that produce diasporic communities and consciousness. 

How will the children of the diaspora show pride and perpetuate their cultural tendencies in a contemporary western society where cultural values and standards are compared with well defined and acceptable way of life? The Gambia united society with its well experienced staff encourages the children to understand the well rich culture of their mother country and its people. This will give the children the sole desire to respect and practice the culture of their parents while still intergrated into the westerrn society. That is why we organised cultural events to connect the people  of diaspora with home country. We invite all Gambians and their children to attend these events and celebrate our nation's pride culture.
