Tiger Kloof is a Mission school serving students in the rural community around Vryburg in the Northwest of South Africa. The school closed during the apartheid years because it refused to abide by the government's edict that schools refrain from teaching academic subjects to black students. It reopened in 1995 after the end of apartheid and continues to face many challenges.
