Children at Studycamp in Tyume Valley, South Africa

Welcome to TVS

Tyume Valley Schools (TVS) is an independent, UK-registered charity working with primary and secondary school teachers and learners in a remote rural area of Eastern Cape Province, South Africa. TVS works in partnership with Eastern Cape Province Education Department.

We raise funds from charitable trusts and supporters in the UK and South Africa so that we can:
  • Provide IT teaching to over 300 primary and secondary school children during 2017.
  • Run a 3-year out-of-school English language programme: during 2017. 4 schools, 50 children and 11 teachers were involved
  • Run residential study camps for 100 primary school children and 25 school leavers each year
  • Support partnerships between UK and Tyume Valley schools
  • Work closely with local and district organisations to ensure local involvement and long-term sustainability.
Over the past 15 years, more than 5,000 children have benefitted from TVS's activities.
