Briefly.co.za understands the initiative aims to raise awareness and increase funding of the Nelson Mandela School Library Project.

The project ensures that under-resourced schools maintain a healthy inventory of books.

Support of the Trust also provides a much needed employment boost for individuals from under-privileged communities.

Highlighting the importance of the initiative, Ndamase said, “Relate is showing that the initiatives and sentiment behind Mandela Day shouldn’t just be a one-day event on 18 July. Their bracelets are a reminder to those that wear them, and those who see them, of the importance of lending support to the most vulnerable and desperate people. We have the power as a nation to make every day a Mandela Day.”
