On Mandela day, the 18th of July, the focus is not so much on celebrating Madiba’s birthday or life, but this day serves as a reminder that each person has the power to change the world. It is a global call for people to take action and recognize their ability to have a positive effect on those around them. Nelson Mandela made an imprint on the world for 67 years; his life was an inspiration and therefore this day inspires people to embrace the values that Mandela lived. Everyone everywhere is urged to spend just 67 minutes of their day on community service with particular focus on education and literacy, shelter, food security and health.
