Tebelo Village

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.

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.

Key activities planned for the site:

  • A private-public-partnership for a hospital
  • A private school that supports and feeds into training of early learning teachers in local vulnerable communities
  • Small business incubator – providing seed-funding, training, and mentorship to small business entrepreneurs
  • Leadership training and eco-mapping of spiritual and leadership care that empowers local and international students to enroll for short courses on community transformation.
  • A living lab research model that links to tertiary institutes by offering students an opportunity to participate through their research, implementing innovations with Tebelo Village.
  • Implementing a viable and for-profit farming model focused on empowering vulnerable communities to attend training programs and implement this in their own context to contribute to food security.
