Dakar Ralley

After departing France on 1 January 2004, the ralley will rapidly cross Spain and disembark in Morocco by 3 January. The circuit on the African continent will have the magnificent and challenging Moroccan trails as a backdrop, enabling competitors to pick up the rhythm of the race. Then, up to Dakar, the difficulties and natural obstacles will follow hard on one another’s heels: first the Mauritanian desert, riddled with ergs that are difficult to cross and where navigating will test drivers’ most delicate skills; plus the many crossings of Ergs. After that, Mali will tender its multitudes of small Sahelian tracks, where piloting is a gruelling test, followed by the Senegalese savannah before reaching the banks of the Pink Lake and Dakar.

The djembe drum is West Africa's most popular drum. It has a remarkably flexible range of tones, produced by its thin goat skin, shape and tight tuning.

Dogon People

Cliff Climbing Dogon
The Dogon are an ethnic group located mainly in the administrative districts of Bandiagara and Douentza in Mali, West Africa. The religious beliefs of the Dogon are enormously complex and knowledge of them varies greatly within Dogon society. Dogon religion is defined primarily through the worship of the ancestors and the spirits whom they encountered as they slowly migrated from their obscure ancestral homelands to the Bandiagara cliffs. Without any equipment but his own muscle and expertise, a Dogon man climbs hundreds of meters above the ground. Ireli villagers use ropes made of baobab bark to climb the Bandiagara cliffs in search of pigeon guano and Tellem artifacts.

In 2008 she became the first black woman in 11 years to model for Prada. The last one before her was Naomi Campbell in 1997. She has helped to turn modelling away from the issue of weight towards that of race. As someone said, she has made black the new black.
Dutch Refugee Council
Vluchtelingenwerk Nederland

Vluchtelingenwerk Nederland
All over the world, large groups of people flee their homelands for fear of persecution. They are discriminated against, threatened, tortured and fear imprisonment. Their lives are at risk. Every year, a small number of them come to the Netherlands. The Dutch Refugee Council works hard to protect this small but vulnerable group. The Netherlands has known peace for more than half a century. Our democratic system is our guarantee that we will not be persecuted, discriminated against or subjected to arbitrary rule. We are free to live our lives the way we see fit. This is so obvious that we hardly even think about it any more.
