Tag: Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund
With a life dedicated to universal education and ending child poverty, the wife of two of Africa's most revered leaders believes that we owe our children – the most vulnerable citizens in any society – a life free from violence and fear. Widowed twice, she fights on, knowing her work is not yet done.
Nelson Mandela has devoted a great deal of his time and resources since his release from prison to improving the lives of children around the world, but particularly in South Africa. He has given his own salary and prize money, and set up the Children's Fund to help the younger, more vulnerable members of society.

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.
