The Mandela Rhodes Foundation, www.mandelarhodes.org
In an address at Westminster Hall, London, on July 2 2003, The Mandela Rhodes Foundation's Patron, Mr Nelson Mandela, said:
'We have agreed to and support this joint initiative believing that the bringing together of these two names represents a symbolic moment in the closing of the historic circle ... We know with confidence that the work of The Mandela Rhodes Foundation will substantively contribute to a better life for the people of South Africa and further abroad on the African continent ... It speaks of a growing sense of global responsibility that in this second century of its operation the Rhodes Trust finds it appropriate to redirect some of its attention and resources back to the origins of (its) wealth.'
