Please Help Us Fund Travel Scholarships for the Spring 2018 Charlottesville Delegation to Winneba!

A total of 56 Charlottesville residents will be traveling to Winneba from April 30-May 10, 2018 to explore the origins of slavery and the history of the trans-Atlantic slave trade.  There are no city tax dollars going toward this trip.  Travelers must pay out of pocket to participate, and there are some local residents who wish to go but cannot afford the cost.  The Charlottesville-Winneba Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, has launched an online fundraising campaign to provide 10 full or partial travel scholarships for this amazing journey.  To read in their own words about why the scholarship recipients want to travel to Africa, or to help with a financial contribution toward this important cause, please see  All donations are fully tax-deductible and greatly appreciated!
