South Africa Partners joins with millions around the world who mourn the death of Nelson Mandela. We send our heartfelt condolences to the people of South Africa as they grieve the loss of the father of their nation.
Nelson Mandela's 95 years were marked by activism against discrimination and oppression, the forging of a reconciliation philosophy while in prison, the realization of a peacefully negotiated settlement, and then years as a world statesman on behalf of peace, children's rights, and the end of HIV/AIDS. He taught the world that advancing the rights of the disenfranchised and underserved is not an act of charity - it is an act of justice. To have lived during this time and witnessed Nelson Mandela's leadership and resolve has been an extraordinary privilege.
As Boston organizes memorials and remembrances for this celebrated and remarkable man, South Africa Partners will be posting the latest information here. We will also regularly update our website with notable tributes to Nelson Mandela and other information of interest.
