Tag: Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory
International Nelson Mandela Day is in danger of becoming a day for "do-gooding". It is much more than this, however; it is a day on which people are encouraged to start changing the world. With this in mind, the UN is asking people everywhere to speak out about their priorities through its survey, My World.
The Centre of Memory will keep alive Mandela's ideals and principles. It is a store of his history, and a space for dialogue on the present and future. The Children's Fund is investing in that future, through various programmes focused on the poor and vulnerable.
