Exceptional achievement is gained by persistent innovators, whose actions are propelled by personal drive and purpose. Despite adversity and circumstance they risk virgin trails, sometimes mindful and yet oftentimes oblivious to consequence.
This award honours progress and encourages the recipient to venture on, energizing the hopes of our new nation; toward peace, toward understanding, toward truth.
And, at life's end it can be said that humankind was advanced...
The full purpose of this award would have been served,
Nelson Mandela
