Nelson Mandela Day (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
July 18th marks Mandela Day in South Africa. ‘Mandela Day is a global call to action that celebrates the idea that each individual has the power to transform the world, the ability to make an impact’.
The Mandela Day campaign message is: “Nelson Mandela has fought for social justice for 67 years. We’re asking you to start with 67 minutes.”
This year, VentureWeb made a small difference. Over the span of a few weeks, we went on a scarf-knitting mission and the scarves were distributed in Zoo Lake Park in Johannesburg.
Special thanks to our VentureWeb’ians Ma Busi, Nom, Debbie and Brad who all went above and beyond in their contribution to this initiative.
