Stop Paying For Slavery Tour Estimates!

The Tour has come to an official end, now my brain is just full of all the follow up work that needs to be done. In the meantime, here is the estimated impact of an amazing tour!

The range of events – business, political, university, religious, media – is exactly what the Campaign seeks to reach wherever we travel.
We now have a strong platform for ongoing work in South Africa.

Highlights include:

*A television interview on the E network that broadcasts across 70% of Africa.
*A keynote presentation at the TED (X) – South Africa event with 550 business and tech leaders
*Manpower-partnered workshop, “The Business of Ending Slavery,” to over 60 participants in Capetown and 40 participants in Johannesburg.
*A deal to broadcast our PSAs on NFS during premiere English football games broadcast all over Africa – at no cost!
*An invitation from the national anti-trafficking police (with 9 provincial units) for NFS to provide investigative and technical training
*Partnerships with a network of black pastors in Soweto, a key Afrikaaner church near Joburg, YWAM bases across SA, and two key English churches in Capetown
*Live radio interview with SA’s largest community radio station: Tygerburg Radio

Graham Vanmooten and Saskia Wishart, our NFS South African team, provided extraordinary leadership on the ground.
Graham also heads up Media Village, a production company in Capetown, which provides NFS-SA with invaluable support.
Danielle Easterbrook of Manpower, Inc., did a terrific job getting key business leaders engaged in Capetown and Johannesburg.

We are making plans to go back to South Africa with a “mobile” Academy, as well as a high-level “forum” for innovative business and social leaders,  in August 2011
