FADE Africa celebrates Nelson Mandela Centenary

Some Words of Wisdom from Nelson Mandela

  1. One of the most difficult things is not to change society-but to change yourself.
  2. There are a few misfortunes in this world that you cannot turn into a personal triumph if you have the iron will and the necessary skill
  3. Religion is about mutual love and respect for one another and for life itself. It is about the dignity and equality of humankind made in the image of God.
  4. It is up to the youth to decisively and finally break our society out of constricting and divisive definitions of our past.
  5. We must ensure that color, race and gender become only a God-given gift to each one of us and not an indelible mark or attribute that accords a special status to any.

The Nelson Mandela Gardens of 95 Trees, in partnership with FADE Africa and The South African Consulate Lagos will be celebrating the Centenary anniversary of human rights activist and former South African President, Nelson Mandela, at the Nelson Mandela Park inside Asaba International Airport. This event slated for July 18th, 2018 is our effort to commemorate and celebrate the life of a true leader.

"If you fly and drive across the countries of the world as I have done in the last 45 years, you will notice that our planet earth that was so blue and green has become gray and brown in the last 25 years. That was about the time the effects of climate change began to be noticed by the discerning minds. But climate change phenomenon had been with us all the while; we just could not admit it, and sometimes feigned complete ignorance."
