Mandela Day 2016-THANK YOU!


Each year, Mandela Day dawns on a field of 67 empty square metres at Botshabelo. And every year, we wonder how we will fill it. So we are excited to share that with the help of many in our community, we filled 67m2 in honour of Madiba’s 67 years spent serving our country.

Thank you for your generosity, kindness and support. Thank you for your time, effort and energy. We deeply appreciate the chance to connect with you on our favourite day of the year in partnership for the transformation of lives, and in honour of Nelson Mandela!

The donations of clothes, stationary, food, and MORE are already going toward supporting the children in our programmes, as well as directly into the homes of local families in need. Another reason why, as a charity, this is our favourite day of the year! We get to honour the great Nelson Mandela and connect with our supporters and community on behalf of those in need!


We welcome the chance to keep connecting with our community throughout the year, as we ‘Make Each Day a Mandela Day’ –and have many JOIN US on the adventure of transforming lives.

About Us

Botshabelo was born, in 2000, out of a burning passion for the community and its desperate need for a place of safety, support and resources. The Babies Home, Urban Kids Educentre and offices are located on the 20 acre property of 64 on Main, Midrand. From this base we serve the community of Olievenhoutbosch and surrounds through our Early Childhood Development programme (UpliftED Training Programme). Botshabelo is passionate about transforming children’s lives through excellent education and residential care.
