Nelson Mandela Day celebrated at Mission Education centre, Dharavi

“Education is the window and mirror in which you can look at the world”

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”

These and many more inspiring quotes of the great philanthropist Nelson Mandela adorned the walls of the classrooms at Mission Education centre in Dharavi, Mumbai as the South African Consulate chose to celebrate Mandela Day (Nelson Madela’s birthday: July 18) with Smile Foundation children this year.

Diplomats from the South African Consulate relived their childhood days as they joined the Smile kids – painting walls, singing, dancing and remembering the teachings of Nelson Mandela, all the time spreading good cheer. The Consulate also extended support towards the education of children under Mission Education programme.
