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 Nelson Mandela Foundation is now calling for #ActionAgainstPoverty! Beyond #MandelaDay is the potential to change every day in an impactful way. Positively, of course, the Nelson Mandela Foundation has developed a more tangible direction for people’s contributions towards their global mandate. Their strategic shift is commendable as it relies on strengthening bonds with other civil society organisations. Networked communication.
To play the role of facilitator, the Nelson Mandela Foundation is using its strong identity to have influence and impact. On Wednesday, 10 May 2017, 23 years after South Africa democratically elected its first president; the Nelson Mandela Foundation honoured their namesake by presenting their strategic shift in approach to #MandelaDay! Asking for all stakeholders and supporters of #MandelaDay to focus their energy and efforts on taking #ActionAgainstPoverty.
