Timpir

kidsTimpir: Australians supporting health, education and development in South Sudan (hereafter referred to as Timpir) is a grassroots organisation that works to improve the lives of people in South Sudan through locally developed and operated community development initiatives.

Timpir was formed in 2004 with a vision to work with the people of South Sudan and the global community to assist in the development of a region devastated by almost 40 years of recurrent civil war from the 1950s to 2005.

South Sudan lags significantly behind the rest of the world in standard markers of development. For example, it is estimated that only 1.9% of children complete primary school and one out of every six children will die before their first birthday (Office of the UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator for the Sudan 2010).

Timpir was incorporated in Australia in 2005 under the name Panhom, this name was changed to ‘Timpir: Australians supporting health, education and development in South Sudan’ in 2007. Timpir is run by a board of 10 volunteer directors who oversee the design, implementation and running of Timpir’s projects in South Sudan. Working with local community members in South Sudan to identify, plan and implement projects is fundamental to Timpir’s ethos, however Timpir relies on the financial and volunteer support of people around the globe to make these projects possible. The main objective of Timpir is to improve access for the people of South Sudan to basic education and health care through working with local communities.

Timpir is a partner for Project J943N Timpir Quality Schools Project South Sudan with Global Development Group (ABN 57 102 400 993), an Australian NGO approved by the Minister for Foreign Affairs. Tax deductible receipts for gifts over $2 with a preference for this approved development project will be issued by Global Development Group for project J943N. If funds raised exceed the requirement for this project, funds may be directed to another approved activity. Please note, no non-development (evangelistic, political or welfare) activities are a part of, or funded by, GDG projects. For more information please visit www.gdg.org.au

If you would like to make a donation to help us in establishing and furthering the projects of Timpir in South Sudan, you can make your tax deductible donation via credit card, Paypal, cheque, money order or direct deposit via the Donate page.

This wonderful student is the captain of the Waramoth primary school volleyball team. Volleyball is the main sport that girls play at school, with boys playing soccer. The volleyball captain is requesting that Timpir assist the girls of Waramoth primary school by providing them with balls and a net. If you would like to donate to assist Timpir purchase some volleyballs, a net and a pump for the girls of Waramoth, please consider donating at https://globaldevelopmentgroup.org/au/projects/j943n-timpir-quality-school/

Woohoo! We have hit $8000! Thank you so much to all the wonderful and generous people who have supported the kids of Waramoth and Mabok.
Now if Israel Folau can get $250000 in a few hours to fund his bigotry, I think we need to show him that love will win over hatred! Let's get to $9000!
Thanks team

Dear Timpir Supporters,
"Educate a gril, change the world"
https://timpir-gdg-j943n.raisely.com

We have a message from one of our recent students in Waramoth:

This is Martha, one of last year's Year 8 candidates, she is now 17 years old. Martha did well in her Year 8 exams and has been able to go on to high school education at boarding school in Aweil.
Martha spoke with Tong, our project manager in South Sudan:
"I would like to take this opportunity to appreciate the Timpir supporters for their hard work to join hands and keep our teachers in school. We hope Timpir will grow well.
Thanks for showing us the word EDUCATION"

If you can contribute please visit our crowdfunding page and share with your friends and colleagues!
So far we have raised almost enough to support 4 of our teachers for the year. We have 14 days left to raise the final $2000. This money goes directly to the Timpir schools in South Sudan and will help keep 1300 students in school!
We all passionately believe that every child deserves a basic education at the very least and as our supporters, we thank you for believing in Timpir and our vision. Please help us get to the finish line!

Thanks again for your support.
Kind regards,
The Timpir Team

Dear Timpir supporters, you may have noticed some negative comments on our posts lately... trolls don't need to be addressed.... We would however like to assure you we are not scammers. Every single cent donated goes to the schools (there are very few NGO's that can say this) and as Timpir board members we volunteer our time and energy. We feel very privileged to be able to be part of making the lives of children a little better and a little closer to what all humans deserve as basic standards of living. It's a hard road and the work of justice will never end. We totally agree with John Trump's first comment that many children in Australia are also suffering and all of us are involved in local work also. But a scarcity mentality and the belief that giving to one takes away from another is at the heart of what is wrong with the world today.
You can also find us on the Australian register of charities (ACNC).
Finally, remember, in the words of Teddy Roosevelt...it's not the critic who counts...the credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena. Whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood...so get in the mud!

Thanks to all of the wonderful people who have donated so far contributing to our efforts to raise $8000 to pay the salaries of 5 teachers in South Sudan for the year. We're currently at the magical figure of $5555. There's still time to make your tax deductible contribution to help girls continue to access education in an area where a 15 year old girl is more likely to die in childbirth than complete primary school. https://timpir-gdg-j943n.raisely.com/?fbclid=IwAR14mxhTUMkvcfKazMiQnwKxBglTnml_UomM9lPAzFp6UoVvaIUVKRT5cuU
