The Eastern Cape town of Qunu is abuzz with activity and excitement as it prepares for former president Nelson Mandela’s 93rd birthday celebrations.

Young and old alike are rolling up their sleeves to do their 67 minutes for the good of the community in line with Madiba’s ubuntu principles.

But it is not only in Mandela’s home town where things are happening in Mpumalanga, celebrities have given the Amakhaya Orphanage a facelift.

And in Pretoria a 13-year old boy has shown he's got what it takes to be a model citizen. He has mobilised parents and children from all over the capital to help out at the Tshwane Haven for abandoned babies.
