The Children's Resource Center run by Timbaktu Collective is located in C.K.Palli village (Ananthapur, A.P.) and is a space for village children and youth to have access to a library, arts & craft, games, maker space with power tools, organic gardens, community stage and theater space. It also acts as a vocational training center for adolescent girls. The skills include tailoring, weaving, bamboo work, wood work, etc.

The Objectives of the CRC are:
1. To provide a learning space with a variety of resources accessible to the children
2. To create opportunities for children to learn various crafts
3. To create facilities for celebration of events and festivals.

Timbaktu Collective works on rural development in three mandals - C.K.Palli, Ramgiri and Roddam of India's second most drought prone district, Ananthapur in AP. For over 20 years they have done this through eco-restoration, child and youth rights, women's self-help groups, organic farming and producer owned business enterprise development and efforts in alternative education.

Timbaktu runs a school called Prakruthi Badu, which is also funded by Asha. The project page for Prakruthi Badi is here:
