On July 18th, we celebrated Mandela Day, an annual international day in honor of Nelson Mandela, celebrated each year on 18 July, Mandela’s birthday. Mandela Day honors the legacy of Nelson Mandela and his values, through volunteering and community service. The Community is encouraged to provide 67 minutes of service for the 67 years he spent fighting for social justice. On Thursday, we spent the morning in our creches working with the children to learn about and celebrate the legacy of Mandela. In the afternoon we worked with The Sozo Foundation to paint a community mural in the Vrygrond Trust community room.
