Nelson Mandela International Day

18 July 2018



Nelson Mandela International Day 2018 marks 100 years since the birth of Nelson Mandela. The Centenary is an occasion to reflect on his life and legacy, and to follow his call to “make of the world a better place.”

Nelson Mandela embodied the highest values of the United Nations. One hundred years after his birth, Nelson Mandela’s example of courage and compassion continue to inspire the world.

The Nelson Mandela Foundation is dedicating this year's Mandela Day to Action Against Poverty, honouring Nelson Mandela's leadership and devotion to fighting poverty and promoting social justice for all.
