What we do:

  • Provide a public and community platform for Chagossians all over the world using conferences, meetings, community events, social media and the press and broadcast media. Our Facebook page and Twitter
  • Organise campaigns and communications which can improve the lives of the exiled Chagossian community through dialogue with decision makers, government bodies, and the press
  • Build networks between Chagossian community organisations and form partnerships with them to support their activities and aims
  • Build networks with organisations, individuals and bodies who can support the Chagossian community,
  • Build a network of researchers and academics who can provide evidence and understanding which will advance the lives of Chagossians
  • Build partnerships with environmentalists who help sustain the islands and the relationship between people and the islands
