#WalkTogether and share a #SparkofHope
continue Mandela’s long walk to freedom
The Elders, with partner civil society networks, chose to honour the 100th anniversary of their founder, Nelson Mandela, by celebrating 100 Sparks of Hope. These are grassroots organisations working for the freedoms that unite societies – peace, health, justice and equality.
Launched in July 2017, the WalkTogether movement travelled across the globe in the lead up to Madiba’s 100th anniversary with The Elders shining a light on Sparks of Hope. Through their deeds and the values they demonstrate, each Spark of Hope organisation, in their own way, is continuing Mandela’s long walk to freedom.
Read their stories, and the 100 ideas for a freer, fairer world the Elders want to see.
