Mandela Relate bracelets provide funding for the Nelson Mandela School Library Project to refurbish, stock, and donate container libraries to underprivileged schools across South Africa, benefitting thousands of children and community members.

Not only are these bracelets helping to give the gift of literacy to underprivileged children, they’re also helping the Gogos and Tatas (elderly women and gentlemen) who thread the bracelets to earn extra money that supplements their pensions. Relate’s younger staff members, who put all the finishing touches to the bracelets, also benefit from skills courses and training in their chosen fields to further their careers beyond Relate.

Mandela Relate bracelets are available for R67 from the following Tourvest Destination Retail stores nationwide:
