Remembering Mandela@100

This year 2018 marks a major milestone in the incredible story of Nelson Mandela – his centenary. Nelson Mandela would have been turning 100 years old this year. The 1873 Network plans to honour his legacy by giving 100 hrs to individuals on The 1873 FM towards the future, and working towards building the Africa, Nelson Mandela, dreamed of.

We will continue the legacy of Mandela through a number of initiatives, projects and events, and strive to complete some of his unfinished dreams.

We are working to broaden and deepen knowledge about Mandela and his work, support key projects in the fields of education and community outreach, and convene dialogues, particularly around Change The World Campaign and The Future I Want.
