Nelson Mandela Foundation

Invitation to cover: Mandela Day Activations
Date: 18 July 2019
From: Nelson Mandela Foundation

The Nelson Mandela Foundation would like to invite you to join us on Thursday, 18 July 2019 as we mark the 10th Mandela Day. Over the past decade, the Nelson Mandela Foundation has played a myriad of roles for Mandela Day, as a facilitator, event coordinator, communicator, brand ambassador, project manager and implementer. The year 2019 marks a decade of global solidarity and support for the initiative. This presents a good reason for both reflection and recommitment as we review the initiative and assess its impact.

This year the Foundation is working with the City of Ekurhuleni to support four local causes that represent our focus areas - shelter, education, food and nutrition and active citizenship.

Events at the main venue of activities will take place at the Germiston Civic Centre. These will include a press briefing and a dialogue titled “Unpacking the Next Chapter of Mandela Day” at 09h00. The day will also include a moment to honour senior citizens and tracking Madiba’s footprints in the City of Ekurhuleni.

Event details:

Date: 18 July 2019
Time: 06h00 – 16h00 (The press conference will start at 09h00)
Venue: Germiston Civic Centre, 15 Queen Street, Germiston
