Cornick writing Kitt she was ahead of her time when it came to sex positivity during the 50s and 60s embracing her persona as a gold digger who turns men into helpless little boys with her sexual power Santa Baby is clearly divisive A recent survey by polling website YouGov America found it to be the most unloved Christmas song perhaps because studies show that money is one of the most

to be important enough to be someone s wife As Kitt explained in a 2007 npr interview The song goes Santa Baby slide a saber under the tree Well all the men who have done that with me have never

took very literally in 1954 with This Year s Santa Baby Javits put new lyrics to Springer s music to update the story and if any marriage took place as Springer suggested it is never mentioned What we do learn is that the gifts Kitt requested either failed or failed to deliver on her promise Santa Baby that Cadillac is falling apart won t start Kitt sings in a sort of 1954 sequel A private plane

    Eartha Kitt’s Other Christmas Songs Will Make You Look At ‘Santa Baby’ In A Whole New Way

    Photo illustration by Thomas Levinson/The Daily Beast/Getty

    In 2018, Miley Cyrus set the internet ablaze with what nearly every headline writer called a "feminist" rewrite of Eartha Kitt's "Santa Baby." On The Tonight Show, she explained that she was uncomfortable with the original lyrics of the 1953 Christmas classic, in which Ella Kitt lists all the extravagant gifts she wants. "Am I saying I'm going to hook up with Santa if he buys me all this stuff?" Cyrus asked, before performing an updated version of her asking Santa for men to stop talking about her and grab her by her ass because he could buy hers her own stuff, thank you very much from her. .

    Feminist publication Ms Magazine, on the other hand, included Kitt's sultry tune on its list of the Top 10 Feminist Christmas Songs in 2020, with Julia Cornick writing: “[Kitt] she was ahead of her time when it came to sex positivity during the '50s and '60s, embracing 'her persona as a gold digger who turns men into helpless little boys with her sexual power.'”

    “Santa Baby” is clearly divisive: A recent survey by polling website YouGov America found it to be the most unloved Christmas song, perhaps because studies show that money is one of the most uncomfortable topics for Americans to talk about. . . It's certainly central to "Santa Baby," which still amazes nearly 70 years later.

    “Santa Baby” wasn't Kitt's only Christmas song, though, and it gains vital context and nuance when heard alongside her other Christmas songs.

    It's important to note that money was a factor in Kitt's life and career from the very beginning. The South Carolina native rose from rags to fame after advancing in Katherine Dunham's dance company, which landed her in the glamorous social circles of Paris. In her 1989 autobiography The Confessions of a Sex Kitten, Kitt recalls how the legendary playboy Rubirosa wanted to take her to dinner at Maxim's. When he complained that he had nothing to wear, he sent her assistant to take Kitt shopping for an outfit for her. At dinner, she gave him an extra pearl necklace.

    the story continues

    As an artist, he often dealt with cash flow problems, but the luxury items kept coming, frequently at shows. “Usually they would be older men sitting by themselves, but they would inevitably make some sort of move to be introduced,” Kitt wrote. “An older gentleman who had been through this very exercise introduced me to sitting down with a box with a black bow marked 'Cartier' obviously on display at his table, which made me curious throughout the second show about who was he. The lonely older gentleman brought him into my dressing room with the maitre d' and said, 'I am an old-fashioned millionaire and I would like to not only give you this gift, which is not much, but I would also like to give you the deed of my yacht in the port of San Francisco. It is made entirely of Japanese teak and has a crew of seven.'” She left the bracelet in the box, but she stayed on the yacht, worrying about maintenance costs.

    The relationship between wealth and sexuality was the subtext (if not the entire text) of many of his songs, including "Monotonous," his signature number from 1952's New Faces, the Broadway show that launched Kitt. In it, she complained about her monotonous life as rich men bought her expensive and elaborate gifts: “I met a pretty funny fool on the way to Istanbul / He bought me the Black Sea for my swimming pool. Monotonous."

    The 25 Best New Christmas Songs of 2022, From the Backstreet Boys to Phoebe Bridgers

    "Santa Baby" fits perfectly into that artistic profile. Songwriters Philip Springer and Joan Javits wrote it specifically for Kitt in 1953 at the request of his record label. rca Victor. Springer had a hard time squareing Kitt's sultry image with Christmas, but he was purely the melody guy, and when lyricist Javits suggested the title "Santa Baby," he knew they had something to work with.

    Javits' lyrics were part of the rest of Kitt's songbook up to that point, and according to Kitt's daughter, Kitt Shapiro, they were closer to the truth than Javits might have realized. In Shapiro's memoir of his life with his mother, Eartha & Kitt, he talks about a couple of sugar daddy relationships Eartha had, including one with a bank heir who "gave her lavish gifts, including an emerald ring surrounded by diamonds." ". and the first mink of her stole ”.

    The book also links the singer to Charles Revson, the founder of Revlon, who was 20 years Kitt's senior and similarly pampered her with expensive gifts. When it became clear that she would never be more than his lover, their relationship fell apart. "My mother didn't want to be anyone's mistress," Shapiro wrote. "She wanted to be important enough to be someone's wife."

    As Kitt explained in a 2007 npr interview, “The song goes, 'Santa Baby, slide a saber under the tree.' Well, all the men who have done that with me have never stayed with me.

    Still, it's easy to hear what made "Santa Baby" transgressive. Though she was smart and corny, she presented a self-possessed black woman who was open to wanting the finer things in life. Kitt ignored the romantic niceties, instead presenting her relationship as a power play.

    As a burlesque, “Santa Baby” creates the impression that it is more scandalous than it is. Kitt promises very little in words, but her delivery implies a world of sensual pleasure. The song outraged politicians, and Springer said some southern radio stations banned it for being too suggestive, but not enough to hurt its chart performance. "Santa Baby" peaked at No. 4, with Billboard reporting at the time that "Unlike many other Christmas songs, it has broken the DJ's sound barrier" 'We won't be playing Christmas music in November' and already received plenty of airtime. air".

    "Santa Baby" raises a litany of questions, beginning with the identity of Santa Claus in the song. Is Kitt singing to Saint Nicholas or his mistress, using "Santa" as a pet name for the holidays? How serious is that list? Is all the elaborate inventory of extravagant desires (a convertible, a yacht, a duplex, etc.) a pretense to finally arrive at the only one that matters: a ring? Is the song a way for the woman to ask the man to marry her, something that would have been considered a violation of gender roles at the time? So Philip Springer believed.

    “Remember how he says, 'Santa baby, I forgot to mention one little thing, a ring'? That was my line,” she told the Deseret News in 2018. “I've always believed that my line makes it clear that she's saying, 'Holy crap, I want to marry you too if you want to continue this relationship. .'”

    “Santa Baby” left these questions hanging in the air, but a year later, we discovered that things did not turn out as expected for our sensual protagonist.

    "Santa Baby" was so successful that RCA Victor requested a follow-up tune, which Springer and Javits took very literally in 1954 with "This Year's Santa Baby." Javits put new lyrics to Springer's music to update the story, and if any marriage took place as Springer suggested, it is never mentioned. What we do learn is that the gifts Kitt requested either failed or failed to deliver on her promise.

    “Santa Baby, that Cadillac is falling apart, won't start,” Kitt sings in a sort of 1954 sequel. “A private plane would be smart / Santa Baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.” Time after time, he responded to the litany of disappointments by increasing the request. The yacht he wanted was leaking, so the next year he wanted the Queen Elizabeth ocean liner.

    For those who considered Kitt a gold digger in "Santa Baby," it's a case of karmic revenge and a valuable lesson in a capitalist society. The luxury items didn't live up to their promise, but like any good capitalist, Kitt's solution in the song is simply more. His faith in his promise remains unshakable.

    “This Year's Santa Baby” didn't chart, probably because it's not that good of a song. “Santa Baby” is playful and invites the listener to consider the nature of the relationship and how seriously to take it. “This Year's Santa Baby” isn't built on that, and taking his Christmas list to the extreme flattened the dynamic. Asking for a platinum mine and a box of checks might be downright stingy in "Santa Baby," but a fur and a ring sounds plausible in certain rarefied circles. Nothing in “This Year's Santa Baby” rang true.

    Kitt wasn't done with Christmas, though, and 1955's "Nothin' for Christmas" was the response to "Santa Baby" that exposed the patriarchy. Written by Sid Tepper and Ray C. Bennett, "Nothin' for Christmas" is paired with another of Kitt's signature songs, "I Want to be Evil." In it, Kitt complains: "Princess and proper, the girl who's never been kissed / I'm tired of being pure and not chased." Her response to that is to turn evil, comically speaking, and "bad," which we learn in "Nothin' for Christmas," means to be physically expressive. In the song, men offer her fur coats, motor boats and a trip to Paris, among other gifts, if she gives them a little kiss or a squeeze. But she doesn't understand any of that “because she didn't want to be mean”.

    Part of the criticism of "Santa Baby" is that it's wrong for Kitt to use her sexuality as a bargaining chip with men, but in "Nothin' for Christmas," all the guys offer tactile products. Taken together, the songs show women in a no-win situation: they're bad if they're sexual, but the only way they deserve a Christmas present is by being bad.

    The reluctance of the women in Kitt's songs to bet heavily on love rang true in her own life because, as a black woman, her relationships with the white men who courted her faced clear limitations. According to Eartha & Kitt, several of her relationships with wealthy white men could not withstand the pressure from the families. The estranged wife of Revlon founder Revson once threatened to expose "her lover of hers black of hers," Shapiro wrote.

    In 1962, during an interview with writer Studs Terkel, Kitt addressed the love/money debate and admitted that she loves fur coats—"I mean, everybody loves to have mink coats"—but she felt bad. . by the people who depend on the materials. goods to make them happy. “I don't think another Cadillac or Frigidaire in the house is going to make anyone happier,” he said. “In fact, these are the things that make life difficult for you.”

    His song "Mink, Schmink" apparently backed up that point of view with the lines "Mink Schmink, Money Schmoney / I think you're hot now, don't you honey / What do you have if you ain't got no love?"

    But that wisdom comes courtesy of a friend, according to the song's first verse, who tries to put this thought into his head. In Kitt's life, love remained elusive. She was only married once, in 1960, to John William McDonald, and they divorced five years later. So she might not be surprised that at the end of "Mink, Schmink," a song that discounts money and the finer things in life, she still concludes, "I'll take the Jaguar on the right."

    Eartha Kitt’s Other Christmas Songs Will Have You Looking At ‘Santa Baby’ In A Whole New Way

    Photo illustration by Thomas Levinson/The Daily Beast/Getty

    In 2018, Miley Cyrus set the internet ablaze with what nearly every headline writer called a "feminist" rewrite of Eartha Kitt's "Santa Baby." On The Tonight Show, she explained that she was uncomfortable with the original lyrics of the 1953 Christmas classic, in which Ella Kitt lists all the extravagant gifts she wants. "Am I saying I'm going to connect with Santa if she buys me all this stuff?" Cyrus asked, before performing an updated version of her asking Santa for men to stop talking about her and grab her by her ass because she could buy her own stuff, thank you very much from her. .

    Feminist publication Ms Magazine, on the other hand, included Kitt's sultry tune on its list of the Top 10 Feminist Christmas Songs in 2020, with Julia Cornick writing: “[Kitt] she was ahead of her time when it came to sex positivity during the '50s and '60s, embracing 'her persona as a gold digger who turns men into helpless little boys with her sexual power.'”

    “Santa Baby” is clearly divisive: A recent poll by polling website YouGov America found it to be the most unloved Christmas song, perhaps because studies show money is one of the most uncomfortable topics for Americans to talk about. . It's certainly central to "Santa Baby," which still shocks nearly 70 years later.

    “Santa Baby” wasn't Kitt's only Christmas song, though, and it gains vital context and nuance when heard alongside her other Christmas songs.

    It's important to note that money was a factor in Kitt's life and career from the very beginning. The South Carolina native rose from rags to fame after advancing in Katherine Dunham's dance company, which landed her in the glamorous social circles of Paris. In her 1989 autobiography The Confessions of a Sex Kitten, Kitt recalls how the legendary playboy Rubirosa wanted to take her to dinner at Maxim's. When she complained that she had nothing to wear, she sent her assistant to take Kitt shopping for an outfit for her. At dinner, she gave him an additional pearl necklace.

    the story continues

    As an artist, he often dealt with cash flow problems, but the luxury items kept coming, frequently at shows. “Usually they would be older men sitting by themselves, but they would inevitably make some sort of move to be introduced,” Kitt wrote. “An older gentleman who had been through this very exercise made himself known to me by sitting down with a box with a black bow marked 'Cartier' obviously on display on his table, which made me curious throughout the second show about to who was. The lonely older gentleman brought it to my dressing room with the maitre d' and said, 'I'm an old-fashioned millionaire and I'd like to not only give you this gift, which isn't much, but I'd also like to give you the deed to my yacht in the port of San Francisco. It is made entirely of Japanese teak and has a crew of seven.'” She left the bracelet in the box, but she stayed on the yacht, worried about maintenance costs.

    The relationship between wealth and sexuality was the subtext (if not the entire text) of many of his songs, including "Monotonous," his signature number from 1952's New Faces, the Broadway show that launched Kitt. In it, she complained about her monotonous life while rich men bought her expensive and elaborate gifts: “I met a pretty funny fool on my way to Istanbul / He bought me the Black Sea for my pool. Monotonous."

    The 25 Best New Christmas Songs of 2022, From the Backstreet Boys to Phoebe Bridgers

    "Santa Baby" perfectly fits that artistic profile. Composers Philip Springer and Joan Javits wrote it specifically for Kitt in 1953 at the request of his record label, RCA Victor. Springer had a hard time squareing Kitt's sultry image with Christmas, but he was purely the melody guy, and when lyricist Javits suggested the title "Santa Baby," he knew they had something to work with.

    Javits' lyrics formed part of the rest of Kitt's songbook up to that point, and according to Kitt's daughter, Kitt Shapiro, they were closer to the truth than Javits may have realized. In Shapiro's memoir of his life with his mother, Eartha & Kitt, he talks about a couple of sugar daddy relationships Eartha had, including one with a bank heir who "showered her lavish gifts, including an emerald ring surrounded by diamonds." and her first mink stole”.

    The book also links the singer to Charles Revson, the founder of Revlon, who was 20 years Kitt's senior and similarly pampered her with expensive gifts. When it became clear that she would never be more than his lover, their relationship fell apart. "My mother didn't want to be anyone's mistress," Shapiro wrote. "She wanted to be important enough to be someone's wife."

    As Kitt explained in a 2007 NPR interview, “The song goes, 'Santa Baby, slide a saber under the tree.' Well, all the men who have done that with me have never stayed with me.

    Still, it's easy to hear what made "Santa Baby" transgressive. Though she was smart and corny, she presented a self-possessed black woman who was open about wanting the finer things in life. Kitt ignored the romantic niceties, instead casting her relationship as a power play.

    As a burlesque, “Santa Baby” creates the impression that it is more outrageous than it is. Kitt promises very little in words, but his delivery implies a world of sensual pleasure. The song outraged politicians, and Springer said some southern radio stations banned it for being too suggestive, but not enough to hurt its chart performance. "Santa Baby" peaked at No. 4, with Billboard reporting at the time that "Unlike many other Christmas tunes, it has broken the dee-jays' sound barrier" 'We won't be playing Christmas music in November' and has already received lots of airtime.”

    “Santa Baby” raises a litany of questions, beginning with the identity of Santa Claus in the song. Is Kitt singing to Saint Nicholas or his mistress, using "Santa" as a pet name for the holidays? How serious is that list? Is the entire elaborate inventory of extravagant desires (a convertible, a yacht, a duplex, etc.) a pretense to finally get to the only one that matters: a ring? Is the song a way for the woman to ask the man to marry her, something that would have been considered a violation of gender roles at the time? So Philip Springer believed.

    Christmas Queen Explains Why She Challenged Mariah Carey's Trademark Offer

    “Remember how he says, 'Santa baby, I forgot to mention one little thing, a ring'? That was my line,” she told the Deseret News in 2018. “I've always believed that my line makes it clear that she's saying, 'Holy baby, I want to marry you too if you want to continue this relationship. .'”

    “Santa Baby” left these questions hanging in the air, but a year later, we found out that things didn't turn out as planned for our sultry leading lady.

    "Santa Baby" was so successful that RCA Victor requested a follow-up tune, which Springer and Javits took very literally in 1954 with "This Year's Santa Baby." Javits set new lyrics to Springer's music to update the story, and if any marriage took place as Springer suggested, it is never mentioned. What we do learn is that the gifts Kitt requested either failed or did not deliver on her promise.

    "Santa Baby, that Cadillac's falling apart, won't start," Kitt sings in the sort of 1954 sequel. "A private plane would be smart / Santa Baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight." Time after time, he responded to the litany of disappointments by increasing the request. The yacht he wanted had a leak, so the following year he wanted the Queen Elizabeth ocean liner.

    For those who considered Kitt a gold digger in "Santa Baby," it's a case of karmic revenge and a valuable lesson in a capitalist society. The luxury items didn't live up to their promise, but like any good capitalist, Kitt's solution in the song is simply more. His faith in his promise remains unshakable.

    "This Year's Santa Baby" didn't chart, probably because it's not that great of a song. “Santa Baby” is playful and invites the listener to consider the nature of the relationship and how seriously to take it. “This Year's Santa Baby” isn't built on that, and taking his Christmas list to the extreme flattened the dynamic. Asking for a platinum mine and a box of checks might be downright stingy in "Santa Baby," but a fur and a ring sounds plausible in certain rarefied circles. Nothing in “This Year's Santa Baby” rang true.

    Kitt wasn't done with Christmas, though, and 1955's "Nothin' for Christmas" was the response to "Santa Baby" that exposed the patriarchy. Written by Sid Tepper and Ray C. Bennett, "Nothin' for Christmas" is paired with another of Kitt's signature songs, "I Want to be Evil." In it, Kitt complains: "Princess and proper, the girl who's never been kissed / I'm tired of being pure and not chased." Her response to that is to turn evil, comically speaking, and "bad," which we learn in "Nothin' for Christmas," means to be physically expressive. In the song, men offer her fur coats, motor boats and a trip to Paris, among other gifts, if she gives them a little kiss or a little squeeze. But she doesn't understand any of that "because she didn't want to be mean."

    Part of the criticism of "Santa Baby" is that it's wrong for Kitt to use her sexuality as a bargaining chip with men, but in "Nothin' for Christmas," all the guys offer touch products. Taken together, the songs show women in a no-win situation: they're bad if they're sexual, but the only way they deserve a Christmas present is by being bad.

    The reluctance of the women in Kitt's songs to bet heavily on love rang true in her own life because, as a black woman, her relationships with the white men who courted her faced clear limitations. According to Eartha & Kitt, several of her relationships with wealthy white men could not withstand the pressure from the families. The estranged wife of Revlon founder Revson once threatened to expose "his black lover of hers," Shapiro wrote.

    In 1962, during an interview with writer Studs Terkel, Kitt addressed the love/money debate and admitted that she loves fur coats—"I mean, everybody loves to have mink coats"—but she felt bad. by the people who depend on the materials. goods to make them happy. “I don't think another Cadillac or Frigidaire in the house is going to make anyone happier,” he said. “In fact, these are the things that make life difficult for you.”

    His song "Mink, Schmink" apparently backed up that point of view with the lines "Mink Schmink, Money Schmoney / I think you're hot now, don't you honey / What do you have if you ain't got no love?"

    But that wisdom comes courtesy of a friend, according to the song's first verse, who tries to put this thought into his head. In Kitt's life, love remained elusive. She was only married once, in 1960, to John William McDonald, and they divorced five years later. So perhaps it comes as no surprise to her that at the end of "Mink, Schmink," a song that discounts money and the finer things in life, she still concludes, "I'll take the Jaguar on the right."

    Electronic notification system digitizes notification for polio certification

    One of the key markers on the global path to poliovirus eradication is certification, the formal verification that a region is polio-free.

    Last month, that scoreboard got a digital upgrade.

    Following the resolution passed at the World Health Assembly in 1988 to eradicate polio, the Global Certification Commission was established to lead the formal certification process for polio-free regions.

    In 1995, the WHO Eastern Mediterranean Region established the Regional Certification Commission (RCC).

    The RCC is comprised of scientific and public health experts who independently review and assess country data and documentation of activities and reports submitted by national polio eradication committees for all countries in the Region.

    The RCC has an important purpose: it reviews the annual certification reports submitted by the countries of the Region to identify the gaps in polio-free countries and recommends appropriate risk mitigation measures.

    It also works closely with National Certification Committees (NCCs) and other groups, and reviews progress toward certification of polio eradication and containment of laboratory stocks of poliovirus.

    Each year, the RCC meets with NCC members from countries in the Region, Global Polio Eradication Initiative stakeholders, and ministries of health to review the epidemiological situation, progress, and present recommendations to the countries.

    In May, the RCC met for its 36th meeting in Dubai.

    Speaking at the event, WHO Regional Director for the Eastern Mediterranean, Dr Al-Mandhari, expressed appreciation for the RCC's efforts to support polio eradication in the Region.

    “I am pleased to inform you that, as a result of his efforts, 20 of the 22 countries in our Region have achieved the required standards for polio certification.

    With significant progress in the last 2 endemic countries of our Region, we are closer than ever to eradicating polio."

    This year, the RCC reviewed reports from Bahrain, Djibouti, Egypt, Islamic Republic of Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Libya, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, and Yemen.

    .

    The reports had been provisionally accepted pending revision based on comments from the RCC.

    For Afghanistan and Pakistan, their progress reports were reviewed and taken into account by the RCC.

    During the meeting, the RCC endorsed the new Annual Electronic Certification Report (e-ACR) system, effectively taking the system out of beta status and moving it into established practice and agreed that certification reports be submitted through this system sooner.

    of the 37th RCC.

    meeting in 2023.

    The e-RCA, as a recommendation of the RCC during the 33rd meeting in 2019, was developed as a web-based system to mimic the offline workflow, including submission, review, approval and archiving of the data reported within the annual meeting.

    certification reports.

    It enables custom and structured data entry that will help users easily retrieve data for comparison and analysis with previous years' reports, a process that previously relied on records kept in multiple separate systems, or even paper records.

    Following software development, 65 participants representing the RCC, NCCs and ministry of health focal persons from 13 countries were trained in 2 separate sessions in May and June 2022.

    Feedback and recommendations from these trainings are being incorporated to the e-ACR system.

    A third training is scheduled for September 2022 for representatives of the remaining 9 countries in the Region.

    The introduction of the innovative e-ACR system makes the Region one of the leading WHO regions in the digital archive of all certification reports.

    This system not only facilitates data retrieval, but also allows the next generation of disease eradicators to learn from the experience of polio eradication certification and process.

    International Organization for Migration (IOM) and government of South Sudan conclude study visit to Rwanda on remittances and diaspora engagement

    The Technical Advisory Working Group (TAWG) on Remittances and Diaspora Engagement in South Sudan visited Rwanda May 5-8, 2021 to learn from the Rwandan authorities how to work closely with the Diaspora for economic and social development.

    Rwanda has emerged from conflict to build one of the strongest economies in East and Central Africa.

    The study visit was organized by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) to South Sudan in coordination with IOM Rwanda as part of the project `` Building knowledge on remittances and engagement of the diaspora '' funded by the IOM Development Fund (FID).

    The delegation was led by officials from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and the Ministry of Finance and Planning. Members of the delegation also included representatives from the Ministries of Trade and Industry, Investment, Gender, Children and Social Protection as well as a representative of IOM from South Sudan.

    The delegation met with counterparts from the Rwandan Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MINAFFET) who shared best practices on policies that have been developed to encourage the Rwandan Community Living Abroad (CAR) to invest and contribute to the development of Rwanda. Part of the success is the voluntary, well-organized and engaging diaspora who have worked with the authorities towards a common goal of recovery and development of Rwanda to the status it is today.

    “We have witnessed the vast opportunities that a well-coordinated and engaged diaspora can have for the development of our country. South Sudan and Rwanda have a comparable history, and if we can put in place the right policies, there is no reason why we cannot become a prosperous hub like Rwanda, ”said the Ambassador Marach Kon Awet of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of South Sudan.

    IOM supported the TAWG Policy Drafting Working Group in drafting the first Diaspora and Gender Remittances Policy which was recently finalized and is awaiting approval from relevant ministries. . This policy was written as a result of IOM's policy research on remittances and diaspora engagement, which highlighted the challenges underlying the limited files on remittances. incoming and outgoing funds and the high cost of remittances, among others.

    The delegation also learned about the Rwandan community abroad (RCA), a branch of the Rwandan Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MINAFFET) which acts as a center for mobilization and coordination of the diaspora for social and economic investments. RCA works with agencies such as the Rwanda Development Board to identify investment opportunities.
