Nelson Mandela International Day: Celebrating Justice and Freedom for All

“Overcoming poverty is not a task of charity, it is an act of justice. Like Slavery and Apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man-made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings. Sometimes it falls on a generation to be great. YOU can be that great generation. Let your greatness blossom.” – Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela dedicated 67 years of his life to bringing peace and equal opportunity. Do you have 67 minutes to take action and inspire change?

On July 18th, we celebrate Nelson Mandela’s achievements and the 95th birthday of a social justice revolutionary. In critical but stable condition, Mandela continues to inspire the world to make positive change.

The Nelson Mandela Foundation’s global call to action asks YOU to pay it forward and give back to your communities.


The Nelson Mandela Foundation highlights 67 ways to change the world and recommends helping out for good health and helping those living in poverty, specifically for organizations that treat those with HIV.
