2. Complete statutes and information on organizational goals


Our statutes can be viewed here


Timbuktu in the Valley in South Africa is a learning center registered as a non-profit organization. We aim to impart knowledge gathered through different systems of education in the belief that the youth in our care are capable of breaking their own barriers  when effectively supported. One way we achieve this is through freedom of education, one that is independent of the national curriculum as a result of various socio-political disadvantages. Our focus is on healthy nutrition, sustainable action and supporting children in the areas of art, crafts and sport.


Timbuktu in the Valley Deutschland e.V. serves as a representation and connection to Europe in order to establish and maintain relationships with sponsors and to recruit association members who are committed to TitV. 100% of the funding collected by the association benefits the NPO.


Our work is dedicated to education within development co-operation in civil society.

3. Information on tax relief

We are registered with the Nuremberg Central Tax Office with the tax number 241/111/01015 and are exempt from corporate tax there through the last exemption notice we received on 27 November 2021 through our work for charitable purposes in accordance with Section 5 Paragraph 1 KStG and Section 3 No. 6 of the Trade tax law exempt from trade tax.
