Dimension Data has launched a Web site, bepartofthemiracle.com, to coincide with last night’s screening of Miracle Rising: South Africa, a 90-minute documentary of the four years between the release of Nelson Mandela in 1990 to the elections in 1994.
Screened last night for the first time, the documentary will be broadcast in 57 languages to more than 300-million television households in 150 countries.

“The aim of Be Part of the Miracle site is to inspire and learn from one another, and to encourage civil society to ask themselves, each day what they can do to make a difference in the world and ‘be part of the miracle’,” says Andile Ngcaba, Dimension Data’s Middle East & Africa chairman.
“We hope that with the participation of South Africans and our African counterparts, this very special Web site will become a resource centre that individuals – especially the youth – can visit to find out about the ‘miracle’ that is South Africa.”

“As South Africans, we are all part of the miracle. The philosophy behind the group’s commitment was then, and today still remains, nation-building,” says Jeremy Ord, chairman of documentary sponsor Dimension Data Holdings.

“We wanted to remind the people of South Africa, and the world at large, how far South Africa has come since 1990. Creating this unique piece of social content is testimony to everything that South Africans have endured and achieved.”
