Inspiring Social Change for Mandela Day

Written by Mark Forrester on July 18, 2013 News.

Mandela DayFor those unaware, Mandela Day is a day of inspiration, change and movement for good in the world, inspired by Nelson Mandela. Those wishing to participate in Mandela Day are encouraged to take at least 67 minutes on Mandela Day to take action, inspire change and, as the ethical framework of the day says, to “act in service to one’s fellow human”.

Being a proudly South African company, WooThemes participated in Mandela Day and wanted to give back in a way that we can add sustainable value, while assisting our local community. We dedicated the afternoon to spending time crafting a new website* for Kuyasa, a community organisation located near Stellenbosch.

Kuyasa’s mission is to empower children and youth of previously disadvantaged communities to become inderpendant while embracing Christian values. The dream is that they will lead and empower others to follow the same set of values.

Thank you, Tata Madiba

While everyone has a role to play in Mandela Day, it is the actions of one man who have inspired the world. Thank you, Tata Madiba, for inspiring change within us all.

We encourage everyone reading this to take 67 minutes (or more) out of your day today, give of your time, skills & self and help your fellow human (helping them to do the same would be an exponentially inspirational act).

* The new Kuyasa website is not yet live for public viewing.

    I sometimes forget Woothemes is a South Africa based company. What a great way to be reminded!

      *Proudly* South African is what I hear these guys always saying. šŸ˜‰

      Us WooThemes employees from the states are almost as big as the South Africa crew. We’ll need a second HQ soon!

    He is a man who had not just changed his country but also a man who inspired the whole world. Indeed he is a man who is worth to be honored.
