Nelson Mandela International Day, Mandela Day for short, is an annual international day in honour of Nelson Mandela. Each year on the 18 July, we celebrate Mandela’s birthday and his legacy.

On Mandela Day, you are encouraged to make a contribute to changing the world for the better, just as Nelson Mandela did every day.

This year EasyEquities, one of our founding partners and part of the JSE listed company Purple Group limited, is supporting the Madiba Action Project. Just like they are democratising investing and access to the stock market, they are supporting this initiative to provide sanitary dignity to all. This initiative supports one of the ten goals that have been identified in the #ActionAgainstPovery drive.

The EasyEquities team have committed themselves to helping the disadvantaged people at an abandoned shelter outside Turffontein, and they would like to enlist your help.

The shelter wants to improve the living conditions and upgrade their sanitary facilities for everyone who is cared on their premises. The shelter cares for displaced people, ranging from 6-month-old babies to elderly people. Through the project the EasyEquities team want to help bring a greater sense of dignity to the people who call the shelter home. “Every action and every donation can be help”, says Standwa Nongauza.

So, join the movement and contribute to the project. The full details are provided in the document below. If you are on social media, please share the initiative – using the hashtag #PurpleMAP and tag EasyEquities’ Brand Rockstar Standwa Nongauza (@StandwaNongauza). Who knows he may even have a few Easy prizes to give away. We can all contribute to making the world a better place.
