Make the world a better place

Make the world a better place

[magical quote]

“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.” – Nelson Mandela

What is Mandela Day?

Nelson Mandela International Day commemorates the lifetime of service Nelson Mandela gave to South Africa and the world. It was launched on his birthday, 18 July, in 2009 via a unanimous decision by the UN General Assembly.

“It is in your hands to make of the world a better place,” he said a year earlier, calling on the younger generation to take up this task.

Mandela Day calls on us all, every day, to make the world a better place. Each year on 18 July we look back on what has been done, and forward to what will be done

Making every day a Mandela Day celebrates Madiba’s life and legacy in a sustainable way that will bring about enduring change.  TAKE ACTION, INSPIRE CHANGE HERE
