International Nelson Mandela Day is on 18 July 2013.

The overarching objective of Mandela Day is to inspire individuals to take action to help change the world for the better, and in doing so build a global movement for good. Ultimately, it seeks to empower communities everywhere.

The theme for Nelson Mandela Day 2013 is “Take Action; Inspire Change; Make Every Day a Mandela Day”. There are three subthemes: food security, literacy and shelter.

Nelson Mandela Day activities are meant to be in service of a community and are therefore people are encouraged to conduct events that are in line with one of the three sub-themes.

However, given the overall theme – as long as one is making a contribution by giving your time (67 minutes or more), it will be appreciated”.
