TAKE ACTION, INSPIRE CHANGE
Madiba was an untiring fighter for social justice, a leader who believed in leading from the back like a shepherd so that everyone feels that they are at the front. Someone who essentially knew that to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.

This is how the policy of racial segregation came to an end along with the National Party government’s rule. While White minorities were highly insecure about their future and safety under a new regime, Madiba ensured adequate representation of whites in the new government ensuring dignity and freedom of all in the new era of modern and inclusive South Africa.

To remember 40 years long (out of which 27 years of struggle were in jail) enduring fight of Madiba against apartheid law of racial segregation, United Nations General Assembly unanimously decided to observe his birthday i.e. on 18th July as Mandela Day in 2009 to honour his life’s legacy and work. Mandela Day (as its mission statement suggests) inspires everyone to make this world a better place by encouraging people to take action and foster since as he said, it is in our hands to make this world a better place.
