The TransCape non-profit organisation (NPO) was registered on 4 August 2004 with South Africa’s Department of Social Development.
The organisation was the initiative of Mdumbi Backpackers’ workforce and friends. Together with the medical staff at Canzibe Hospital, they established an NPO to help the communities of the Nyandeni sub-district to tackle their significant health, social, educational and economic needs.
It is an initiative that successfully helps the communities of the Nyandeni sub-district to tackle their significant health, social, educational and economic challenges.
TransCape works closely with members of the Mankosi community and the Nyandeni district to develop the local area in an eco-friendly way that benefits the community. TransCape is active in an area ranging from Port St Johns to Coffee Bay and in-land up to Mthatha and Libode. This falls mainly in the local Nyandeni Municipal area, OR Tambo District, Eastern Cape, South Africa.
