MABIBI GET AFRICA UNITED
Mabibi is a small community of about 3000 people on the pristine coast of Maputuland, just north of KwaZulu-Natal. Here GET Africa Travel has started its own football team, Mabibi Get Africa United. The team is supported by current and former guests, as well as many others who will help create a change in this community.
You are welcome to help us build a football team that can spread joy, good attitudes and positive experiences in the community of Mabibi!
Since the start in 1999 has Get Africa Travel (GAT) had many guests who have had some unforgettable trips in southern Africa. GET Africa Travel wanted to give something back to the people who have helped to make the company a success. The choice fell on the Mabibi area, a small community of 2-3000 people on the uncrowded coast of Maputuland, north of KwaZulu-Natal, in the area of "ISimangaliso World Heritage Park". This area was chosen because it is somewhat isolated and because GAT has many travelers to this area.
The 14. June 2010 established GET Africa Travel a football team that got the name "Mabibi Get Africa United". The team consists of young men in the age group 15 to 32 years. Some of the players still go to school, others work at nearby lodges, some use what nature has to offer and make various ornaments (this is where GET Africa Travel their baskets are produced), some work with agriculture to cultivate enough to survive, while others have nothing to do. The players come and go as they move to get work, and new ones grow up, so the team will have a natural replacement. Therefore, it is important to maintain good attitudes and culture within the team, and continue the coherence principles of the new ones.
The home course is beautifully located at the edge of Lake Sibaya, which is South Africa's largest freshwater lake. The team got new goal bars and net in December 2012, and a friendly German donated in January 2013 two sets of football equipment consisting of rain jackets, short trousers, socks and suits for 19 outfield players and 2 goalkeepers, as well as 18X footballs. Several of our guests have also donated football shoes, first aid kits and other useful equipment. The equipment is well taken care of by the team leader so that it is preserved and utilized to create pleasure as long as possible. The team trains on weekdays, and plays matches against other teams in the surrounding area on weekends. GET Africa Travel wants to build a football team that has the necessary equipment to play football and give a boost to the small community that doesn't have that much. These are simple things like socks, lawn mowers, shoes, footballs, transportation, resources for a team for younger children etc.
With support from GET Africa Travel As well as traveling customers and former travelers, as well as anyone who wants to help make a change, you are welcome to help us build a football team that can spread joy, good attitudes, new opportunities and create positive experiences for the community of Mabibi.
