The President’s Award Nelson Mandela Day 67 minutes initiative


Make a difference this Mandela Day by donating R67.00 to help empower young underprivileged South Africans to enrol in the Award programme.

Help us make The Award accessible to the 10 million young people in South Africa by becoming a corporate sponsor and fund a young person to complete a level of the Award.


The Nelson Mandela International Day campaign remains rooted in the call Nelson Mandela made in 2009 to honour him by working in communities rather than by celebrating his birthday. While the 18 July remains a focal point for the campaign, we urge people supporting the campaign to participate in sustainable interventions with lasting impact.
