MOT SA Mandela Month Campaign

July is known as Mandela Month in South Africa to honour and celebrate the life of the former President of South Africa – Nelson Mandela.

Each year on 18 July and throughout July, people all around the world play their roles as active citizens by spending 67 minutes or more by doing acts of kindness for those who are less fortunate.

‘Each of us as citizens has a role to play in creating a better world for our children.’ – Nelson Mandela

Our goal during is to continue doing what we can to assist our youth and community and therefore we have come up with our Mandela Month Campaign where we would like to request for donations to continue to fund our MOT Xtras Campaign which consists of many legs, two of which includes our COVID Care Campaign and Courage to Care Campaign.

Our MOT programmes have been designed for the classroom environment, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the social distancing regulation it is not possible to continue with the formal and structured MOT sessions.

Our COVID Care Campaign which is in proud partnership with JP21 Foundation and PPC Africa have started this month which are run at Yellowwood and Hyacinth Schools in Mitchell’s Plain run by our MOT Programmes & Training Team and JP21 Coaches. The programme consists of interactive life-skills activities focusing on COVID-19 health, awareness and wellness in order to keep our youth motivated and strengthened, all the while staying safe and healthy!

Our Courage to Care Campaign is another of our MOT Xtras where we have redirected our corporate donations to assist Sakhisizwe YDP, Mbekweni Youth Centre, and JP21 Foundation who are currently running feeding schemes for their direct beneficiaries and families.
