TVS is a registered charity (no:1103909). Details can be found on the Charity Commission website.
TVS funds a UK volunteer in Tyume Valley. Vicky Riley oversees all TVS's activities and expenditure on a day to day basis and maintains close relationships with Tyume Schools and other local stakeholders. TVS also employs two local IT trainers, Vuvu Tomi and Nontombi Siyanga.
TVS Trustees and Committee members are all experienced professionals who have spent a lifetime working in education or children's services. Trustees are all actively involved with TVS and regularly visit Tyume Valley at their own expense. TVS's administration and overhead costs are therefore extremely low.
