Stand Up for Africa 
To mark the 200th anniversary of the abolition of the transatlantic slave trade, Stand up for Africa had just launched a unique initiative
'Explore Africa 2007' that should be able to interest a very large number of people worldwide, with relevant interests in slavery past and present and African development in general. The project (the Explore Africa 2007) is an invitation to a fascinating week-long visit to Benin, a beautiful country in West Africa with a terrible connection to slavery. The goal of the project is to give participants the opportunity to learn more about slavery past (by exploring fascinating cities historically linked to the slave trade) and present. The Project encourages participants to help end modern day slavery by fostering cultural understanding and solidarity.
