A Centre For Health Promotion


Our approach is motivated by a desire to ensure that our organisation is responsive to changes in the environment within which it operates, and that it is relevant to the present-day needs of the communities it serves.

In a rigorous process that invited input from staff, community stakeholders and partners, the organisation re-affirmed its commitment to a focus on working with the communities of the tribal areas of the Valley of a Thousand Hills and greater Ethekwini.

Our Vision

“Our vision is to see the communities of the Valley of a Thousand Hills living healthy and active lives as full participants in a democratic South Africa.”

Where we work

Through raising funds and effectively mobilising resources we build the capacity of local communities to sustainably ensure their own good health.

A Word from Our Director

“It seems that one clear lesson from the past year is that one should never give up hope. No matter how bad things look at a particular point in time, they do get better. At TVT, we will hold on to that hope as we go into the new year and trust that 2022 will bring not only challenges, but opportunities for us all to get better at what we do as well. We wish all our friends, supporters and other stakeholders a safe and enjoyable festive period and a prosperous 2022!”
