The DTCA focuses at challenging the psyche of Africans both at home and in the Diaspora to appreciate the fact that technically, intellectually and indeed on all matters of development, the African professional is not inferior and that real development of Africa on a self-sustaining basis can only be achieved by Africans themselves.

In this respect, the DTCA has engaged Embassies/High Commissions of African nations in Nigeria, Nigerian Embassies and High Commissions in other African countries, and in institutional collaboration programmes across the continent as well as with other relevant Diaspora organizations such as Africarecruit, FindajobinAfrica, Afroneth, Nigerians in Diaspora Organizations (NIDO) worldwide, etc.

The Directorate hosts a website,, and also publishes a bi-monthly informative bulletin on the Directorate's affairs, the Tech-Cooperator.
