Berlin - Dakar

Short journey from September 2011 to November 2011 to Africa, visiting and supporting some projects in Morocco, Senegal, and Guinea-Bissau.

After spending some wonderful weeks in Rabat and Chefchaouen, Morocco, we support the small street cats shelter ADAN in Rabat together with Rachid and Marcos.

On September 28, Yeon flies to Seoul for the promotion of her book on Charity Travel. Kamiel hitch hikes down to Dakar and visits some more projects, like XOSLU.

Originally we planned a larger West-Africa journey - so we hope to hear from you, travelers who did that and are curious about the grassroots projects you found!
