Mandela Day

As we celebrate Mandela Month, we reflect on the legacy of Nelson Mandela which reminds us of our individual power to impact change. Nelson Mandela saw himself first and foremost as a servant of the people of South Africa, spending 67 years of his life fighting for social justice and freedom for all people, first starting to campaign for human rights in 1942. His selfless leadership inspired other leaders and citizens, globally, to work together in an effort to make the world a more equal and just place.

Madiba, as called by many, said “ we can change the world and make it a better place. It is in your hands to make a difference”. This has been Naidu Consulting’s philosophy and cornerstone in our business practice throughout the years – transforming lives one step at a time.

Over the years, Naidu Consulting has continued to strive in transforming many lives through  implementing and fostering long-term social impact projects that respond to community needs and its surrounding environment. This has been through various socio-economic development initiatives such as the revamps of early child development crèches, our participation in Cell C Take a Girl Child to School Programme, the formation of the Academy of Excellence Programme, and many more. We believe that change starts internally, promoting equal learning opportunities and development for all our employees through our vigorous mentorship and training programmes which is showcased through the talent of our staff and the services rendered to our clients, stakeholders and surrounding communities.

As the world fights against the pandemic of COVID-19 and with our country still on lockdown level 3, this Mandela Day would be slightly different from what we have done in years gone by due to restrictions and our efforts in trying to curb the spread of the coronavirus by staying at home. However, this should not stop us from impacting change as our participation is required now more then ever by all.  We can do this by caring and being mindful of each other by adhering to the restrictions imposed by government, wearing our masks, sanitising and washing our hands and practicing social distancing.

Nelson Mandela said, “courage is not the absence of fear, it’s the conquering of it.” Yes, these are unprecedented times, and terrifying too, but like Mandela, we should not lose hope and sight of our goals.

“It always looks impossible until it is done” by Nelson Mandela.
