What will you do for Madiba?

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

NEL­SON MAN­DELA In­ter­na­tional Day was launched in 2009 via a unan­i­mous de­ci­sion of the UN Gen­eral Assem­bly, in recog­ni­tion of Nel­son Man­dela’s birth­day on July 18.

The day is more than just a cel­e­bra­tion of Madiba’s life and legacy. It is a global move­ment to hon­our his life’s work and act to change the world for the bet­ter.

It was in­spired by a call Man­dela had made a year ear­lier, for the next gen­er­a­tion to take on the bur­den of lead­er­ship in ad­dress­ing the world’s so­cial in­jus­tices when he said that “it is in your hands now”. ● Week­endAr­gus­would­like to­knowwhatyou,your com­mu­nity,or­gan­i­sa­tion, schoolor­busi­nes­sis­plan­ning tod­oforMan­de­laDay2016– emailusatwknews@inl.co.za
