Remembering President Mandela And The Mark He Made on Technology

From the earliest moments of his presidency and through the rest of his life, President Mandela recognized the profound role that technology and communications would play in the development of his nation, lifting lives and bringing opportunities to so many who had been left out by hate and ignorance. Today, as a result, South Africa is a beacon of light and hope in advancing technology for all of its people, for Africa, and for the world.  His memory and his legacy will live on in so many ways, including in his birthplace of Mvezo, where the Mandela School of Science and Technology is nearing completion as the very first secondary school in the region.
