Celebrating Madiba

We are excited to see this year's celebration later this year.Advocating for youth and encouraging them  to observe Madiba's values through their actions, NMDCC formed Mandela365. Mandela365's objectives include:

  1. To develop and promote young leaders in the community (by using Nelson Mandela’s legacy of Ubuntu by promotion of the values that have embodied Nelson Mandela’s life – democracy; equality; reconciliation; diversity; responsibility; respect and freedom advocating for a universal values-based society).

  2. To create new opportunities for community engagement and understanding based on Nelson Mandela’s life of service and advocacy for human rights, peace and social justice.

  3. To equip young participants with the knowledge and skills to serve their community with purpose by imparting skills to their peers, community and family.      Objectives sourced from NMDCC website



Celebrating Nelson Mandela International Day in the heart of Melbourne City at Federation Square. The event was orgarnised by the hard working team at Nelson Mandela Day Commemorative Committe (NMDCC).

Everyone can rise above their circumstances and achieve success if they are dedicated to and passionate about what they do.
