In celebration of Mandela Day, we have joined forces with publisher Pan Macmillan to inspire more children with the picture book version of Nelson Mandela’s bestselling autobiography, 'Long Walk to Freedom'.
Abridged and revised for young children by late award-winning author Chris van Wyk, this version brings to life Madiba's journey from his childhood days as a young village boy to his campaign for freedom across the world. To read more about the partnership, click here.
We are calling for applications from Early Childhood Development Centres, children’s NGOs, schools and literacy organisations to apply for packs of the books, which we will send to you free of charge.
To apply for a donation, email firstname.lastname@example.org with 'Long Walk to Freedom' in the subject line and a short motivation that includes:
1. Your name and name of beneficiary/organisation
2. Address of beneficiary/organisation
3. A brief explanation of your work/work done by the beneficiary, and how the books will be used.
Donated books may not be sold. Beneficiaries in the Western Cape are urged to make arrangements to collect their own copies. Closing date: 31 July 2015. Requests will regrettably not be accepted after this date.
