About Us

Non-governmental organizations

Throughout Africa in general and Southern Africa in particular, many NGO’s support projects related to wildlife and  habitat conservation, and educational community-based projects in rural areas. Many of them focus on their specific area of expertise, and thus rely for follow up on by other NGO’s or agencies for further development of areas and individuals.

The Timbo Afrika Foundation has developed a different policy and strategy. We are focusing on developing certain geographical areas while fully integrating our responsibility to community development, wildlife conservation and sound business development.
