iCebo is an organization that is working towards the upliftment of one of the poorest communities in South Africa.
Our organisation was established during April 2012 and registered as a Non-Profit Organisation on 4 December 2012. We aim to develop a model pre-school, community library, after-care centre and various other community based projects to assist in the general wellbeing and upliftment of the local community.
iCebo Early Childhood Development Centre is based in the isolated, rural and under developed coastal village of Mngcibe, Wild Coast (former Transkei), Eastern Cape which falls under the Nyandeni District. The impoverished local community has no access to basic services as the municipal infrastructure in the area is just about non-existent. There is no electricity, no proper sanitation facilities and municipal water supply (which was only implemented in 2012) is seldom in operation and rarely safe for human consumption. The nearest clinic is a 2-3 hour walk away and the closest hospital is 40km away and only accessible by 4x4.

Set on rolling green hills above the beautiful and pristine Mdumbi Beach (which is one of the best surf spots along the Wild Coast, and indeed, the coast of South Africa), Mdumbi Backpackers is a laid back, rustic and relaxing getaway for all travelers and eco-friendly tourists.
Mdumbi Backpackers is well integrated with their community, and most of the activities - such as kayaking around the islands on the beautiful Mdumbi Lagoon, horse riding and hiking trail guides, fishing, etc. - are directly run by the local villagers.
