Timpir

kidsTimpir 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 2005 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.

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.

COVID-19 has been tough for many of us. For students in South Sudan, a country which at the start of the pandemic had more Vice Presidents than it had ventilators, COVID-19 has shut down their schools for the past 2 months.

The Year 8 students were excited to return to school this week, and to maintain social distancing they bring chairs from home. Hand washing is also a challenge, but innovation is something that the young people and their teachers are renowned for! ... See MoreSee Less

Wonderful story on Timpir's abassador, Gabriel Akon (aka Dyspora) and the great work he's doing. Also amazing to hear him speak at the #blacklivesmatter rally in Adelaide last week.

Hi Timpir supporters!! We've reached $4000 today for our school fundraiser and over 20 people signed up to step for kids across the globe. We are so stoked!! We wouldn't be able to support the two schools in South Sudan without your enormous generosity over the years. Timpir is a grassroots organisation that relies on the support of communities in Australia and South Sudan. Together we can continue to provide excellent schooling to young people in rural areas. Thanks so much from all of us at Timpir 💜💙💚🧡💛 ... See MoreSee Less
