South African Tourism takes action to make everyday a Nelson Mandela Day
Every year, on 18 July the UN joins a call by the Nelson Mandela Foundation to devote 67 minutes of time helping others. In Nov 2009, the UN General Assembly declared 18 July “Nelson Mandela International Day” in recognition of Mandela’s contribution to the culture of peace and freedom. This is celebrated under the slogan: “TAKE ACTION. INSPIRE ACTION. MAKE EVERYDAY A NELSON MANDELA DAY”
This year the South African Consulate in partnership with South African State Entities, Businesses and Partners spent 67 minutes of their time on 18th July with underprivileged children in Mumbai. On this occasion, the entire South African Tourism team stepped out to spend 67 minutes with the Children at Smile Foundation and engage with them. These activities included painting a classroom, singing and dance and lunch with the children.
Smile Foundation is a national level development organization directly benefiting over 400,000 children and their families every year, through 158 welfare projects on education, healthcare, livelihood and women empowerment, in more than 700 remote villages and slums across 25 states of India
The Consulate also called upon others to take up this challenge too and join hands to helping those less privileged in India.
