Invitation to cover: Mandela Day: The Next Chapter
Date: 15 May 2019
From: Nelson Mandela Foundation

Having enjoyed the global solidarity and support for Madiba’s birthday, a day of action and one to effect change in the lives of millions of people for the past 9 years, the Nelson Mandela Foundation has reviewed the Mandela Day programme and resolved to mark its 10th anniversary with a shift in approach and strategy.

The Nelson Mandela Foundation is launching the Mandela Day strategy at a stakeholder engagement session to take place in Johannesburg on the date stated below. The aim of the event is to take stakeholders through our new strategy towards the next decade of action – “Mandela Day: The Next Chapter”. This strategy will reposition the programme globally as a vehicle for sustainable change and to ensure measurable impact. The session will also unveil the new Mandela Day brand identity and messaging which are developed to celebrate a decade of action against poverty while committing us to the next ten years of making impact.
