Hobbiton Outdoor Education Centre

An Outdoor Activity Centre in the nearby village of Hogsback in the Amatola Mountains.  TVS organises at least one Study Camp a year at Hobbiton for children and teachers from schools in the Tyume Valley. The study camps provide a unique opportunity for children to learn personal development and life skills such as Team Building.  The study camps are also an opportunity to consolidate TVS' regular local school programmes, though additional IT and English activities.  As a core philosophy, all activities offered at Hobbiton must be voluntary and fun! 

TVS works closely with Jikani, a community organisation in Hogsback. Jikani aims to increase employment and other opportunities for local people. It currently provides an employment bureau, training, marketing of local crafts and a second-hand clothes shop. During 2014, TVS' IT trainer Vuvu has been delivering weekly adult IT classes in Hogsback.
