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.
