Celebrating Mandela Day


In celebration of Mandela Day, members from the Southern African Association of Hong Kong were inspired to make a difference in lives of migrant women through teaching them to sew.

Initiating their teaching through a ‘making it’ party where our beneficiaries learned to use sewing machines as they made simple and stylish over-the-shoulder bags, the members also arranged for Melanie from The Sewing Lounge to teach a series of ongoing classes focussing on basic machine sewing skills.

The objective of Mandela Day is to inspire individuals to take action to change the world for the better, and in doing so to create a global movement for good. Check out the events held on Nelson Mandela International Day 2012.
