Six years ago, Nelson Mandela made a call to the next generation to take action to address the world’s social injustices. One year later, in 2009, the first Nelson Mandela International Day was celebrated, launched via unanimous decision in the UN General Assembly. Today, in our fifth year of commemoration, we continue to join the call to carry on Mandela’s legacy and to join the global movement for good.  Nelson Mandela once said, “What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.”

Let's Make Every Day, a #MandelaDay
