“Mandela Day” 2018

“Mandela Day “calls on us all, to make the world a better place. Each year on 18 July we look back on what has been done, and forward to what will be done.

Making every day a “Mandela Day” celebrates Madiba’s life and legacy in a sustainable way that will bring about enduring change.

This year as we celebrate 100 years since Nelson Mandela’s birth, we ask you to join us in making this a day to remember.

Barney –
Everyone Is Special
You are special, you’re the only one
You’re the only one like you
There isn’t another in the whole wide world
Who can do the things you do
Oh, you are special, special, everyone is special
Everyone in his or her own way
Oh, you are special, special, everyone is special
Everyone in his or her own way
You’re important, oh, you really are
You’re the only one of you
The world is better just because you’re here
You should know that we love you
Oh, you are special, special, everyone is special
Everyone in his or her own way
Oh, you are special, special, everyone is special
Everyone in his or her own way
Everyone in his or her own way

As Mandela day approaches we have decided to celebrate the specialness of each individual that makes up part of Impilo Child Protection and Adoption Services

  • Every child deserves a champion – an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be. This year for Mandela Day we are focusing on making each and every one of the children in our care feel special and unique. We are asking that companies or individuals to select a child with their birth date and then commit to organizing a very special and unique birthday present for this child.

  • We also want to create a care for the caregiver’s gift pack for each and everyone one of our caregivers across our 8 Places of Safety that work with us. Each of these caregivers work tirelessly and selflessly to ensure that each child placed in their care is well looked after and loved. We need to recognize the important role they play in the child’s life.

  • We strive to make sure all our birth-mothers are treated with dignity and can give birth without worrying about a maternity bag. We aim to make 20 maternity bags filled with products that will allow our birth-mothers to give birth with peace of mind and dignity.

“What counts is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.” Nelson Mandela

We are asking for companies and/or individuals to provide gifts,wrapping,boxes or (anything needed to be put into the gift/care pack) We will have some stations for you to assemble and write letters to the child or caregiver you have chosen.

There will be an interactive presentation describing the work we do and a tour of our Mpepu project, where you can visit and spend time with some of our children.

 

If you are unable to attend, please consider making a donation in one of the names of our children so we can carry on providing services to our +- 150 children.

We will be asking that some get involved in cleaning windows, gardening and other house maintenance jobs on the day.
