Springboks captain Siya Kolisi has been announced as a Global Citizen: Mandela 100 Advocate with a key focus on hunger and nutrition.

In a statement released by Global Citizen he said, “hunger is huge for me because I grew up with hunger” said Kolisi. “Global Citizen will have a profound impact on both present and future generations of South Africans through its ongoing skills training programme. This is fundamental to creating a world free of extreme poverty, especially in a country like South Africa, in which over 50% of young people between the ages of 15 and 25 are unemployed.”

This announcement kicks off Action Journey 3, which is the third round for fans and activists to earn their tickets to the event.
