July : Nelson Mandela International Day
2018 is the year Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela would have turned 100 on July 18th. In honouring Madiba, as he was affectionately known, South Africa and the world will celebrate the centenary year in its journey by marking major milestones and continue his legacy by striving to change the way society treats its children and youth.
Each year on July 18, now known as Mandela Day, South Africans get together for a good cause. The message behind the annual campaign is that each individual can make an impact through public service. Whether volunteering at a homeless shelter or donating food and blankets to the poor, every little bit helps. Nelson Mandela International Day commemorates the lifetime of service Nelson Mandela gave to South Africa and the world.
Through the year 2018, we will share with the world Mandela’s vision and will work to broaden and deepen knowledge about Mandela and his work, support key projects in the fields of education and community outreach, and convene dialogues, particularly around the future we seek to build. Read More...
