To be a lighthouse for vulnerable people by equipping and supporting self-sufficiency and holistic health through access to education, nutrition, and health.

Tebelo focuses on local impact with global relevance through our footprint in the communities in the Western Cape and Gauteng. We have a global reach by enabling access to our free resources to anyone locally or abroad. Our international partnerships impact and inform programs globally.

The Tebelo Lighthouse Multi-Functional Building is completed and starts operating as a farm store, farming and bakery training centre and church, and our after-school children’s education programme kicks off.

Our aim is to create a reproducible model based on research and refined through human-centered design that can be implemented across various sites in South Africa, Africa and globally.

We plan to achieve this through co-creation and innovation on the ground, leveraging existing knowledge, while challenging it with new methods of implementation and inter-disciplinary collaboration. A systematic development of training sites related to food (farming), self-care (life skills, health and spiritual care), care for others (education of children) and creating sustainability (entrepreneurship). We aim to support all these initiatives with digital solutions that encourage stakeholders to achieve their unique goals.
