Nelson Mandela Foundation


Mandela Day initiatives continue to make a significant difference in many lives, with over 800-million people reached globally since July this year. The Nelson Mandela Foundation encourages everyone to continue the good work – many book drives and literacy campaigns continue in partnership with different institutions, including Absa, the South African Post Office, Room to Read and the Department of Basic Education, as we fight poverty of knowledge and promote literacy education.

Mandela Day book-drive donation boxes can be found at Absa offices, post offices and OR Tambo International Airport. You can donate a book for primary school-level learners at these boxes from now to December 2017.
