Nelson Mandela saw himself first and foremost as a servant of South Africa’s people, to whom he felt he owed a duty, and who he led by example.
The genesis of our mandate as the Nelson Mandela Foundation, and our work, stems from Mandela’s passing on the torch of public service to everyone. “It is in your hands to make of our world a better one for all,” he said.
Positive change was the gift left to all of us by Nelson Mandela, but it can only become a living legacy if we take up his challenge.
In the spirit of Madiba and his vision to spread social justice and freedom for all, this is your chance to become part of a continuous global movement for good.
Let us all emulate the servant leader we loved by becoming servant leaders ourselves – Madiba change-makers.
By becoming someone who makes every day a Mandela Day by taking action against poverty, you can show others that actions speak louder than words.
