“I would like to share a poem in celebration of the freedom Aunty Maya gave women to use the power of the spoken word.”- Zindzi Mandela


Someone  once  said  that  it  is  possible  to  fall  in  love  with  the  promise  of  you
I  met  you  in  my  dreams  and  I  knew  that  it  was  true
I  wandered  along  paths  of  pleasure  and  pain
And  met  deep  loss  with  temporary  gain
Searching  and  wandering  in  the  wilderness
Of  the promise, looking  for  you
Everywhere… where  were  you
And  my  darling  you  watched  me
Drifting  away  into  a  rising  and  rising  sea
Ripples  and  waves  away, where  I  didn’t  want  to  be
I  drifted, surviving  on  the  promise  of  you
You, my  sweet, it  was  always  you
Someone  once  said  that  it  is  possible  to  fall  in  love  with  the  promise  of  you
My  Darling, with  you  in  my  life, I  know  this  to  be  true
Hand  in  hand  we  don’t  fall  but  rise  in  love
Heaven  knows, we’re  with  her  above
I  love  you  with  mind, body  and  soul
I  love  you  beyond  measure  and  control
You’re  the  safe  corner  that  shelters  me
The  sweet  love  I  dreamt  you  would  be
Your  eyes  guide  me  beyond  your  presence
To  your  mind, a  mysterious  essence
Keep  me  wrapped  in the  warmth  of  your  desire
In  our  sacred  space  that  can  only  inspire
Someone  once  said  that  it  is  possible  to  fall  in  love  with  the  promise  of  you
I  have  the  promise, I  have  YOU

Alexandra Base Ball Program

ALEXANDRA BASEBALL ASSOCIATION was formed by a group of energetic youth from Alexandra Township with the aim to motive young kids by engaging them through the medium of sports, thus giving them alternative options/outlets that keep them from harmful experiences.

The initiative “LEARNING TO PLAY & PLAYING TO LEARN“, which incorporates basic lifestyle education during baseball sessions has brought a lot of participation from young people in the community and adding to the growth of the ASSOCIATION.

We at Mandela Legacy adopted this cause and assist in day to day planning, maintenance of the initiative to ensure its sustainability and future effectiveness within Alexandra Township and similar areas.
