Group Description

Welcome to "EAST AFRICA CIRCLE "(EAcircle), a free-to-join, non-profit making e-mail discussion forum that is secular, semi-intellectual and non-aligned politically or religiously. EAcircle is devoted to matters of interest to East Africans, their relatives, friends and well-wishers whose ethnic origins may be African, Arab, the Indian subcontinent, European, Chinese and any other.

People from East Africa (Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Comoro Islands, Madagascar, Seychelles and the surrounding area) have scattered to many countries including UK, Canada, USA, Australia, India, Pakistan, France, Holland, Switzerland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and South Africa. Some are outside EA temporarily, for studies, work or business whereas many have permanently resettled outside EA.

It is widely accepted that people from EA are vibrant and rather successful in their lives, possibly due to their multi-cultural upbringing in the rich and diverse society of East Africa where several cultures have interacted over the centuries including African, Indian, Arabic, British and Portuguese. Whilst inter-marriages were not so common nor a pre-requisite, a unique feeling of comradeship, tolerance and racial harmony has prevailed most of the time in most places in EA.

Most of the EA diaspora like to maintain their EA connections and values. Most of those who are born in EA display not only a strong affinity but also much nostalgia towards the towns of their birth and places where their relations are buried or cremated. Spouses, relatives and friends of those from EA often find themselves with a strong sense of curiosity about EA.

If you wish to join, please tell us:
- who you are (name)
- where you live (town/city, country)
- what you do (occupation)
- what your interest in East Africa is
Without such self-introduction, joiners cannot be allowed in.
