We celebrate Nelson Mandela International Day every year to shine light on the legacy of a man who changed the 20th century and helped shape the 21st century.
We honour the great Nelson Mandela and his values through community services and volunteering. It gives all South Africans and people all over the world an opportunity to do something for others, for 67 minutes in recognition of the 67 years that Nelson Mandela spent fighting against apartheid. This is a moment for all to renew with the values that inspired Nelson Mandela. Absolute determination, a deep commitment to justice, human rights, and fundamental freedoms. A profound belief in the equality and dignity of every woman and man. A relentless engagement for dialogue and solidarity across all lines and divisions.
Nelson Mandela was a great statesman, a fierce advocate for equality, the founding father of peace in South Africa.
Happy Mandela Day!
