Former South African president Nelson Mandela who turns 94 on July 18, speaks on the significance of Mandela Day.

In this archive audio, Mandela says that the day named after him, "would not be a holiday but a day devoted to service".

Mandela Day is an annual initiative focused on making the world a better place. The idea is to spend 67 minutes of your time on a specific day helping the world, just as Nelson Mandela spent 67 years of his life fighting for freedom.

Mandela told thousands of people at his 46664 concert in London in 2008, that the work is 'now in their hands'. Listen here:
