About Us

Non-governmental organizations

Throughout Africa in general and Southern Africa in particular, many NGO’s support projects related to protecting wildlife, protecting habitat and educational projects for communities in rural areas. Many of them focus on their specific area of expertise and thus rely for follow up on other NGO’s or agencies for further development of areas and individuals.
Stitching Timbo Afrika has developed a different policy and strategy. We are focusing on developing certain geographical areas whereby all major components from human development to nature conservation and business development are taken into consideration.
