Leading by example

Nelson Mandela saw himself first and foremost as a servant of South Africa’s people, to whom he felt he owed a duty, and who he led by example. Every year our nation sets aside time to make a difference in honour of Tata Madiba, his life, his heart and his passion for bringing people together. No matter how small your action, Mandela Day is all about changing the world for the better.
