Mandla’s Foundation received a Proclamation on March 9, 2021 declaring March 22nd Mandla’s day in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo in Alberta, Canada. So from now on, Mandla will be celebrated on her birthday in her community. Mandla’s Day was declared to recognize Mandla’s impact in her community and to involve youth in community service and social activism, which were very dear to Mandla.
Mandla’s Foundation thinks that it’s important that the youth be inspired by their peers and that they work to promote a friendly and inclusive environment among themselves with Mandla’s motto which is ” It’s a great day to be a great person”. A variety of programs involving youth will be implemented in the Wood Buffalo community soon.
