MANDELA DAY 67 MINUTES DROP ALL AND READ

Nelson Mandela International day commemorates the lifetime of service Nelson Mandela gave to South Africa and the world. It was launched on his birthday, 18 July. Every year, thousands of South Africans and people around the world come together on the 18th of July to offer their time, talents and skills for 67 minutes, to charities, orphanages, schools and other institutions.

 

In celebration of Mandela day Midvaal libraries presented a Drop All and Read Programme at Bantu Bonke hall. Bantu Bonke is one of the disadvantaged community in the area. The day’s objective is to inculcate the culture of reading and learning amongst young people, an initiative that was started by the minister of education. Children were requested to drop everything hold hands and form a human chain as stories were read to them. Story telling was conducted by Midvaal library staff in three different Languages namely Sesotho, isiZulu and English.

 

The ward councillor welcomed every member of the community and the MMC for Community Services thanked all present and gave a brief talk about the importance of the day and it’s significance in our life time. Community leaders came to support the event.

 

At the end of the programme children were offered promotional items, soup and bread was served. More than hundred children attended the 100 Minute of Mandela Day.
