“Do what you can, with what you have, wherever you are”

Mandela Day serves as a reminder for us to continually strive towards making the world a better place. At Botshabelo, we have decided to extend the Mandela experience beyond just one day. Starting from July, we invite you to join us every day, every month, all year round in our efforts to add value to our city.

What does this mean? We encourage both individuals and corporations to support Botshabelo throughout the year, becoming an integral part of our mission to make a difference. We have designed a unique experience for you, including our Drive Through donation drop off. If you have the time, we also invite you to join us inside and learn about our ongoing initiatives. Together, we believe we can achieve more.

As a non-profit organization, Mandela Day holds a special place in our hearts. It allows us to honor the legacy of Nelson Mandela while connecting with and celebrating our supporters and community.

This year, we are offering several partnership opportunities for you to get involved. Remember that BEE (Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment) and Tax Benefits apply to all donations. Whether you are an individual or a company, we are more than happy to provide the necessary paperwork to kickstart the process and ensure you can avail of tax and BEE benefits.

Join us in creating lasting change and leaving a positive impact on our city. Together, let's make every day a "Mandela Day".
