Mandela Day 18 July

Mandela Day 18 July 2017

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

Nelson Mandela was born 99 years ago on18 July 1918.

The UN General Assembly agreed the 18 July be designated Mandela Day.

The proposal is that those inspired by Nelson Mandela’s values, commitment and service do something on Mandela Day and/or other days to help bring about a better, fairer, more just world in which poverty and inequality is reduced and the rights and dignity of all upheld. You decide what to do. You can tell others or not what you are doing.

If you are inspired by Nelson Mandela do something to reduce poverty and help make a better world.
