Mandela Day 2018

In celebration of Mandela Month, the Sanlam Foundation encouraged staff to either purchase a pair of school shoes for a Blue Ladder School learner or donate funds via payroll. Employees from the Sanlam Head Office, and KwaZulu-Natal, Houghton and Alice Lane offices all contributed to the cause, demonstrating their willingness to help others.

In total, 671 pairs of shoes were collected and R31 000 was raised via payroll deductions, benefiting various Blue Ladder Schools across the country. Mandela Day is earmarked to commemorate Madiba’s lifetime service to South Africa and the world, and it calls on us to help make a positive difference in an effort to build a better world for all.
