Grab a slice of history on Mandela Day

Every year on Nelson Mandela’s birthday, 18 July, we celebrate the memory of this great leader. And this year you can remember him by finding out more about his life at the “Mandela 100 The Exhibition” , a collaboration between the Nelson Mandela Foundation and FotoZA Gallery in Rosebank, Johannesburg. This exhibition commemorates Nelson Mandela’s 100th birthday by displaying historical images, archival documents and letters written to him by children of all ages.

The origins of Nelson Mandela Day

Nelson Mandela Day was launched in 2009 after a unanimous decision by the UN General Assembly. The aim of this day is to get people to try to change the world for the better, just as Mandela did, by dedicating 67 minutes of service to people and institutions in need.

“It is in your hands to create a better world for all who live in it.” Nelson Mandela

The Mandela Day website encourages everyone to celebrate this historic day by keeping the spirit of Madiba alive through social justice and freedom and becoming part of a global movement for good with the words: “Take Action. Inspire Change. Make every day Mandela Day.” Initiating or supporting charitable events in our communities will ensure that his legacy lives on. Every small act contributes to a better world.
