On Wednesday, 18 July 2018 we presented our interpretation of Nelson Mandela Day. Every year since 2014, The Wot-If? Trust has leveraged off Nelson Mandela Day to embark on 67 Days of Digital Activism! This time ‘round, our #ActionAgainstPoverty focused on business, technology and cooking for the Diepsloot community. One hundred and fifty corporates & community members lived by Nelson’s Mandela’s “Each one, teach one” philosophy.
The World Choir Games from 4 – 14 July 2018 kick started in Pretoria for the first time in Africa – a competition founded in the year 2000.
