The Boxgirls team and Student Athletes Abroad volunteers taking joint action on Nelson Mandela Day! On the 18th of July, we donated 67 minutes of our working time to a community garden close to our office in Khayelitsha.
Nelson Mandela Day is all about serving for your community and joint action to make the world a better place.
The message everyone took home: Make every day a Nelson Mandela Day!
Nelson Mandela International Day commemorates the lifetime of service Nelson Mandela gave to South Africa and the world. It was launched on his birthday, 18 July, in 2009 via a unanimous decision by the UN General Assembly.
