Our human compassion binds us the one to the other – not in pity or patronizingly, but as human beings who have learnt how to turn our common suffering into hope for the future.
That is just one of many quotes that are a part of the legacy of President Mandela. A man of unparalleled character and wisdom, who endured excruciating adversity and suffering, and yet still managed to keep his heart open to love, to peace, and an unbreakable determination to make the world a better place.
It is this legacy that A Spring of Hope is honored to preserve through our partnership with the House of Mandela. We are excited to be working with Maki and Tukwini Mandela in several economic development opportunities that will improve and empower the lives of impoverished South Africans. One of these projects is to bring water, gardens, and sanitation to rural schools in Qunu, South Africa, the home village of Nelson Mandela.
