Nelson Mandela was a human rights lawyer, a prisoner of conscience, an international peacemaker and the first democratically elected president of a free South Africa. He spent 67 years fighting for the promotion and protection of human rights, gender equality, the rights of children and other vulnerable groups, the fight against poverty and the promotion of social justice, and many more causes!
