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”.
