The valley of Hope and Expectation
Tyume Valley consists of a number of villages nestled under the beautiful Hogsback mountains. A once prosperous valley known for its beautiful citrus orchards which brought gainful employment to the communities, the valley is the home to the amaKhuze people. In the last few decades however, due to the political turmoil of the early 1990s, farms were abandoned and infrastructure became dilapidated which then plunged the community into poverty. With poverty and unemployment at an all time high, crime and substance abuse has increased and churches are dying out.
