The South African Mission celebrated Mandela Day by undertaking 67 minutes of community service on the former President’s birthday, 18 July 2015
The South African Mission again celebrated Mandela Day by undertaking 67 minutes of community service on the former President’s birthday, 18 July.
This year Ambassador Calvert requested all diplomatic missions and representations of the international organisation to join the Mission in celebrating Mandela Day by donating books to the SA Embassy, which the Embassy handed over to the Center for Interethnic Dialogue and Tolerance “Amalipe” and to the Bulgarian National Commission for UNESCO
On 20 July at a ceremony taking place at the Bulgarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Ambassador Calvert donated more than a hundred books gifted by the different missions to the National Commission for UNESCO. The books were received by Ms Maria Donska, Secretary General of the Bulgarian National Commission for UNESCO and Mr Dimitar Filipov, Director of Human Rights Directorate of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. They will assist in distributing them.
At a touching event organised by Amalipe Center for Interethnic Dialogue and Tolerance, Ambassador Calvert donated more than 100 books at a school located in Trudovets – a small village near the capital Sofia. This event became part of the campaign “Together we are better in … school”. The aim of the campaign is to get Bulgarians and Romas together to support through their voluntary work schools in their respective towns or villages, and to share memories from their school years and their dreams of the schools of the future where children from different ethnic groups study together.
During the event Roma and Bulgarian parents did some voluntary work for the school. Together with the school principal and Amalipe representatives Ambassador Calvert shared memories about the schools in South Africa before and after the democratic changes in South Africa in 1994. The entire conversation was about tolerance.
