Nelson Mandela was a global champion of equality, justice & human rights. As societies worldwide become more polarized, his calls for solidarity & an end to racism are as relevant today as ever. Let us honour Madiba’s call to action & be empowered by his legacy.
Mandela was a great hero. The extent of his triumph extended largely from his sagacious understanding that even parties with important differences and contentions can find common ground and cooperate for the good of the larger community.
In 2009, the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) declared 18 July as Nelson Mandela International Day, in recognition of the contributions made by the first democratically elected president of South Africa, Former President Nelson Mandela, to the culture of peace and freedom.
Every year, on Mandela Day individuals and organisations in all over the world, are encouraged to make a difference in their communities by taking 67 minutes doing their part, however small, to enrich the lives of others.
Humanity is facing some of its toughest challenges. But with courage and commitment, we can find the solutions needed to ensure a safer, fairer, greener future for everybody. 💫
Nothing is impossible. It’s time to live up to Nelson Mandela’s words!
