Mission: Timbuktu Educational Foundation, Inc. (TEF) is a non-profit, non-political, educational institution founded for the sole purpose of preserving, restoring and disseminating the important intellectual contributions of the early African scholars from the famous Timbuktu Universities of Mali, West Africa. The manuscripts of Timbuktu cover diverse subjects such as mathematics, chemistry, physics, optics, astronomy, medicine, Islamic sciences, history, geography, the tradition of Islam's Prophet Mohammed, government legislation and treatise, jurisprudence and much more. The manuscripts of Timbuktu are a living testimony of the highly advanced and refined civilization in Sub-Saharan Africa. Even before the European Renaissance, Timbuktu flourished as the greatest academic and commercial center in Africa. Great empires such as Ghana, Mali and Songhai were proofs of the talents, creativity and ingenuity of the African people. The University of Timbuktu produced both Black African scholars and leaders of the highest rank, character and nobility.
Programs: Restore, preserve, translate and publish the manuscripts of Timbuktu Restore the historical buildings which house the University of Timbuktu Reopen the University of Timbuktu with its classical methods of teaching Open a branch of the university in the u.s. utilizing the same classical methods of teaching Promote tourism, educational and cultural exchanges between americans, europeans, others and the people of mali, in general, and timbuktu-gao-djenn- In particular.
