Welcome to TVSTyume Valley Schools (TVS) is a UK-based charity. Our vision is to improve the lives of children living in the Tyume Valley area of Eastern Cape Province, South Africa. We work with local schools to improve teaching and learning and open doors to future opportunities. Although more than twenty years since the end of apartheid, the legacy lives on in the form of badly maintained schools, lack of resources, poorly trained teachers and low educational achievement. This disadvantage is increased by the high unemployment and poor infrastructure in the rural Tyume Valley, which is about 120 km from the nearest airport in East London and 60km from King Williams Town, the nearest large town.
