About us

The year 2018 will mark a major milestone in the incredible story of Nelson Mandela – his centenary. The Nelson Mandela Foundation plans to honour his legacy by building a base towards the future, and working towards building the South Africa its founder, Nelson Mandela, dreamed of.

We will continue the legacy of Mandela through a number of initiatives, projects and events, and strive to complete some of his unfinished dreams.

In 2017, leading up to the centenary year, we shared with the world Mandela’s memory, of which the Foundation is a custodian. We worked to broaden and deepen knowledge about Mandela and his work, support key projects in the fields of education and community outreach, and convene dialogues, particularly around the future we seek to build.
