Welcome to our blog! Here we will be posting information and pictures on happenings in our community. This blog is run by Mdumbi Backpackers and their affiliated NPO, Transcape.
Mdumbi Backpackers is based in Tshani Village, a rural community in the heart of the Wild Coast surrounded by pristine beaches, palm forests and estuaries rich in bird species. We are continuously busy trying to figure out how to create a natural abundance and share it fairly with our community. We plant, sun energize, earth build, play in nature and celebrate community. Mdumbi Backpackers is Fair-Trade accredited with 50% belonging to the community and 100% of all activities owned by the community.
Transcape NPO was registered on the 4th of August 2004 with South Africa’s Department of Social Development. The organization was the initiative of Mdumbi Backpackers’ workforce and friends. Together with the medical staff at Canzibe hospital, they established an NPO to assist the communities of the Nyandeni sub-district to tackle their significant health, social, educational and economic needs.
