Mandela Day Activities 2017: Johannesburg and Cape Town

This year the SAME Foundation is hosting Mandela Day events in Cape Town and Johannesburg.

Make a SAME Foundation community upliftment project part of your company’s Mandela Day plans this year. Not only will you and your team be able to make a tangible difference to children’s well-being at school, but your funds go directly to the project that you are working on. This allows us to complete another strategic community project which benefits the lives of thousands of South Africans.

The SAME Foundation hosts Mandela Day activities for organisations who contribute towards our projects. A donation of at least R25 000 towards the SAME Foundation means that you will be able to bring a team of your staff along to a day filled with hands-on fun. The donation covers the supplies, equipment, catering and labour on, before and after the day.

The schools that we identify are in urgent need of assistance and intervention by the SAME Foundation. We will assist them until their pass rates significantly increase. These projects focus on the improvement of infrastructure, resources and training in Science and Maths. The Mandela Day activities add immense value through improving the other classrooms and environemnt at the school, in conjunction with the project outcomes.
