Mabibi is a small community of around 3000 people on the pristine coast of Maputuland, in the far north of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. Everyone who works at Thonga Beach Lodge has grown up in the village and tourism is therefore essential for community employment. Already in 2010, Get Africa and previous guests started to get involved in supporting the local football team in Mabibi. Here we have annually arranged a football tournament, cross-country running for girls, basket ball, Christmas package distribution.
Later, we have become even more involved, and together with the organization Isibindi Foundation and Get Africa guests invested in several community projects here. During the pandemic, we have distributed food and sanitary items to needy families in the area and focused on improving the school offer both by improving the building stock and the individual student.
