July 18 Mandela Day Mandela day is an annual international day in honor of Nelson Mandela, celebrated each year on 18 July, Mandela’s birthday. The day hopes to inspire people to embrace the values that Mandela shared. These values include democracy, freedom, equality, diversity, reconciliation, and respect.
August 09 Women's Day The holiday commemorates the national march of women on this day in 1956 to petition against legislation that required African persons to carry the ‘pass’. However, by then the ‘pass’ was an identification document which restricted a black South African’s freedom of movement under apartheid. Therefore, we see this as a very vital subject that needs to be celebrated warmly and whole heartedly hence our very own women within the entity are proceeding to show the efforts, hard work and excellent.
