JOURNALISMIZIKO 2016 TEAM’S I_CHALLENGE INITIATIVE
THE SPIRIT OF MANDELA LIVES ON
Written by: Journalismiziko writer
The late, great Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela dedicated 67 years of his life to making the world a better place. In November 2009, the United Nations declared 18th July as Nelson Mandela International Day to pay homage to Mandela for dedicating years of his life to the struggle for freedom from oppression, and to recognise and uphold the values through which he lived.
As part of Journalismiziko’s 67-minutes for Mandela Day, the publication started the #I_Challenge initiative, where donors were requested to do a short clip of themselves collecting clothing items for donation, and then nominating other individuals to do the same.
The challenge proved fruitful, and the collected items were donated to the recently burnt children’s home, Lake Haven, through the Durban Children Society.
The Journalismiziko team is grateful to all those who took their time and participated in the initiative.
