#WalkTogether and share a #SparkofHope

continue Mandela’s long walk to freedom

Sparks of Hope are grassroots organisations that embody the change The Elders want to see in the world. Each one tells an inspirational story of how incredible people across the globe are working for peace, health, justice and equality.

These organisations were brought together to honour the 100th anniversary of The Elders’ founder, Nelson Mandela. They form part of the #WalkTogether movement and The Elders continue to amplify their amazing work as shining examples of the values Madiba held dear.
