Mandela Day

July 18th, 2016, by Sherwin Banda

Mandela Day 2016

In honor of Mandela day, it’s the time of the year that we remember how important it is to give to give back. The principle of Mandela day is taking just 67 minutes of your time to give back in whatever way you can. 

The story of Nelson Mandela’s struggle has been long documented and been an inspiration to so many people all over the world. He spent 67 years working to make the world a better place, by devoting 67 minutes of their time – one minute for every year of Mandela’s public service – people can make a small gesture of solidarity with humanity and a step towards a global movement for good.

  

As someone who grew up in South Africa during apartheid, Mandela day is something that is very close to my heart, as I know first hand the difference that lending a helping hand can make in the lives of the people of Africa. At African Travel we are very proud supporters of The Amy Foundation who aims to empower and uplift the youth of the communities around Cape Town, through providing after-school programs in dance, drama, sports, music and cooking. African Travel is also the co-founder and strong supporter of TreadRight a non-profit organization dedicated to ensure the communities and environments we visit remain vibrant for generations to come.

Finally, I would like to wish you all a wonderful Mandela day and working together we can continue to spread his message of hope and kindness. If you would like to learn more about Nelson Mandela’s journey, why not make your next Safari “In The Footsteps Of Mandela”.  This provocative journey of inspiration through the vibrant and culturally diverse "Rainbow Nation."
