Take action, inspire change, and make every day a Mandela Day

Author: Salesian Institute Youth Projects

Communities across the world are affected by the spread of Covid-19, which has hit every economy, causing new social and economic challenges and exacerbating old ones.

The costs to run our Learn to Live School has increased significantly. Transport cost has doubled since the start of lockdown level 3 when certain grades could return to school. New costs had to be incurred in order to comply with Covid-19 regulations, in keeping our staff and learners safe. Our budget is under strain.

But, there is hope. On a scale never seen before, individuals and groups are finding ways to help those in need of support. You can join them

Mandela Day is celebrated on 18 July every year. In 2020,  we battle this pandemic and its effect on those less fortunate than ourselves. As an NGO the Salesian Insitute Youth Projects is facing many challenges. Yet we uphold our promise to serving the poor and the youth from marginalised communities, offering them education, training and hope, amidst a world in turmoil.

Mandela Day is known as 67 minutes for Mandela Day. Where one minute is counted for every year Mandela served the country. Instead of dedicating 67 minutes doing something worthwhile for humankind, you can now donate R67 or $5 or €3.5 or £3.2 to keep education alive for youth from marginalised communities. Please support the Salesian Institute Youth Projects and the Learn to Live School of Skills.
