Rugged SA & Mandela Day 2021

Mandela Day is a global call to action that celebrates the idea that everyone has the power to transform the world, the ability to make an impact. This year’s Mandela Day campaign message is “Nelson Mandela has fought for social justice for 67 years”.

‘Each of us as citizens has a role to play in creating a better world for our children.’

Nelson Mandela

The global pandemic has touched everyone, but the impact has been most felt in under-resourced communities. Our children need us now more than ever. The devastating impact of COVID-19 has threatened children’s basic rights to education.


‘Our children are our future and one of the basic responsibilities is to care for them in the best and most compassionate manner possible.’
Nelson Mandela


In 2020 Rugged SA launched our very own EduTab campaign due to the global pandemic that was COVID 19. With a new lockdown in place and way of life children were now forced to use distant/online school from their own homes, however not every student in SA was able to have the comfort to participate due to not having the resources available.

Rugged SA strives to bring educational devices to every learner in SA, at an affordable price!

Mandela Day is a wonderful opportunity to show our love for our country and its people. The cumulative action of a compassionate community has the power to transform lives and society as a whole.

So this year Rugged SA will be focusing on Mandela’s vision; “to inspire a futuristic, digital, and technological age – for every South African”, therefore for Nelson Mandela Day 2021 Rugged SA has decided to give back 67 electronic devices in memory of “67 minutes for Nelson Mandela”, to the community of South Africa, to make a change in children’s education and the future of South Africa.

Every learner/student in South Africa has the opportunity to receive an educational device from Rugged SA to help them achieve and improve their academic goals and inspire them to reach their top potential.
