Timbuktu Educational Foundation
History - World
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.
