CALL TO ACTION
The Covid-19 pandemic is an unprecedented global challenge and the Nelson Mandela Foundation has joined with partners to support South Africans and their government in their fight against the virus.
The 18th Nelson Mandela Annual Lecture was delivered by United Nations (UN) Secretary-General António Guterres on 18 July 2020. Owing to the Covid-19 pandemic, the lecture was, for the first time, an online-only event, delivered at the UN headquarters in New York City.
The Covid-19 pandemic and the national lockdown has created and exacerbated food insecurity for many families in South Africa. #Each1Feed1 is our response, in partnership with the Imbumba Foundation and the Kolisi Foundation.
We’re calling on South Africans to show solidarity and donate to a food distribution network.
The Vangasali campaign seeks to find and get the details of all early childhood development (ECD) facilities in South Africa, registered or not. This is so that these facilities, so essential to pre-schoolers' physical and mental development, can be properly supported, especially during the national lockdown aimed at curbing the spread of Covid-19.
For more than 10 years, Nelson Mandela International Day has mobilised individuals, governments, civil society and corporate entities to make the world a better place for all.
Join the Mandela Day Global Network and find yourself part of a community of organisations, government, corporates and individuals that partner with the Foundation to drive Mandela Day and pursue its objectives.
Staying at home during the Covid-19 pandemic can so easily feel like doing nothing, but playing by the rules and not leaving the house during the national lockdown is taking an active part in the battle. Play your part and be a responsible citizen.
The Nelson Mandela Foundation has made its vast archive of the works and writings of the late Nelson Mandela available online. It spans the life and times of Madiba, the struggle against Apartheid and the ushering in of the democratic era.
Through the global, interconnected Atlantic Fellows programs, Fellows collaborate to understand and address root causes of pressing problems.
