Nelson Mandela Day

In honor of the life and legacy of Nelson Mandela, join Rise Against Hunger Africa in fight against ending global hunger by packaging nourishing meals with your organization or during a community event.

Make an Impact in 67 Minutes

The overarching objective of Mandela Day is to inspire individuals to take action to help change the world for the better and build a global movement for good. July 18 has become a national day of volunteerism, philanthropy and donating time, goods, resources and services to beneficiaries in communities we serve across Africa.

This year, Rise Against Hunger Africa will host several large-scale national events in recognition of the life and service of Nelson Mandela. These events provide a platform for corporate volunteers to give 67 minutes of their day and pack nutritious meals. For a donation of R12 500.00 per team, corporates are encouraged to send teams of 12–18 staff members to participate and represent their organisation.

Meals packaged provide hope and nutrition to Early Childhood Development centres, which Rise Against Hunger Africa supports. The ECD Connect program links good nutrition with education for thousands of children during their developmental years. Click the link below to register for a date and venue. If you would like to offer your venue, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Our ongoing theme of It Starts With a Meal highlights that when children start their lives by receiving nutritious food during their formative years, they have an increased chance of developing both physically and mentally, which sets their lives on track for a better future.
