18 July – Mandela Day Post!
The date of the 18th of July has been adopted by the international community as Nelson Mandela International Day. In South Africa, we have the opportunity to take this one step further by embracing the aims of the Mandela Day movement and incorporating this within our Socio-Economic Development (SED) strategies. We can all make a difference and companies embracing this idea can, through their collective effort, truly change our country. Mandela Day is not a holiday, but rather it is a day for all of us to opt into humanity – to roll up our sleeves and play an active role in building our communities. This is an opportunity for each of us to share Nelson Mandela’s vision of a better future for all.
