Share Madiba Magic stories this Mandela Day

To commemorate the centenary celebration of Nelson Mandela’s birthday, Nal’ibali – South Africa’s reading-for-enjoyment campaign – is highlighting some of the values he embodied by sharing a special series of three children’s stories. Made possible through a collaboration with non-governmental organisation Heartlines, the stories focus on honesty, compassion and forgiveness and are an effective way for adults and caregivers to pass on these values to children.

Download a story in your preferred language and share it with the children in your life.
