On December 5, 2013, the U.S. Fund for UNICEF joined millions of people around the world in mourning the loss of Nelson Mandela, former President of South Africa. In addition to his legacy as father of his nation, he also leaves behind his advocacy on behalf of children. In this lesson, students get introduced to Mandela’s story and life work. They examine how his drive was shaped by some of the same values that drive UNICEF’s work: a commitment to human rights and to education. Finally, they research evidence from the news regarding the state of education in their district, county, or state to determine the ways children’s international right to an education is being protected locally, and the ways it may need better protection.
