Beyoncé is coming to a FREE Global Citizen Mandela 100 Festival, in South Africa 2nd of December 2018, at FNB Stadium, Johannesburg.
The Global Citizen Mandela 100 Festival is under a campaign called ‘Be The Generation’ that will end extreme poverty by 2030. Global Citizen has partnered with the Motsepe Foundation which recently had local soccer fans stunned as the Patrice Mostepe-led foundation brought FC Barcelona to play with South African Soccer Team, Mamelodi Sundowns FC, and bringing Beyonce has been a dream for South African Beyonce fans.
The ‘Be The Generation’ campaign and Global Citizen Mandela 100 Festival comes to Africa at the time when Nigeria has just been announced as the country that is most battling and affected by extreme poverty overtaking India. It is reported that 82 million Nigerians live in extreme poverty. That is a staggering 42.4 percent of Nigeria’s population, according to the World Poverty Clock.
These Global goals are part of what is called the ’17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)’ adopted in September 2015 by the United Nations. 190 World Leaders committed to helping end extreme poverty, fight inequality & injustice and fix climate change. Learn more.
