In addition, Naomi Campbell, Sir Bob Geldof, Gayle King, Tyler Perry and Forest Whitaker are on the lineup to help host Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100, and Oprah Winfrey will deliver the keynote address for the event, which serves as the culmination of Mandela 100, Global Citizen’s collaboration with the House of Mandela.

Mandela 100 aims to raise $1 billion for initiatives working to end hunger, increase access to good nutrition for adolescent girls, reduce HIV/AIDS transmission rates, advocate for quality education, provide funding for women’s health, ensure access to clean water and safe sanitation worldwide and more. At least 50% of that sum will go towards efforts to improve the lives of women and girls around the world.
