Our Mandela Day with 9Miles Project!

Our Mandela Day with 9Miles Project!

In South Africa, on the 18th of July each year, we celebrate Mandela Day. In honour of Nelson Mandela’s birthday, we spend our time in remembrance of his dedication to making the world a better place. This year’s Mandela Day theme was ‘Action Against Poverty’ and we were thrilled to get involved with the 9Miles Project.

The 9Miles Project is a registered non-profit organisation supporting and providing mentorship to the youth in the coastal informal settlements of Cape Town, Elands Bay and St Francis Bay.

We spent some time in the 7de Laan township distributing clothing and toys to Vonny’s Baby Centre. We then headed to the 9Miles Club House to help paint an inspirational Surf Wall. Afterwards the 9Miles Project staff and kids were treated to lunch kindly provided by our valued partner in this project; Venturescapes Events.

We left humbled and honoured to have played our part in the upliftment of our local communities. If you wish to get involved with this incredible organisation, get in touch with us or visit their website at www.9milesproject.org.

“What counts in life 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
