Food Program Progress

Today we sent approximately AU$1500 to South Sudan to feed almost 450 students at Waramoth Primary lunch each day for the month of July. These meals are lifesaving for students and their families. Many families in South Sudan are currently in a very tenuous situation, with some choosing to flee to Khartoum in the north with the hope that they will find food there. Timpir is in a position to work with communities to reduce the disastrous effects of famine, but we desperately need the support of donors. Please consider donating to help us run this important program.

Thanks so much to all those who have donated to Timpir’s school lunch program so far. We have raised enough to run the program for one month in the two schools, it would be great if we could raise enough for another two months. This would see the children through to when crops and food becomes more available in September. Please go to the donation page for details on donating and know that every cent of your donation is spent on the ground in South Sudan.

South Sudan 4th Birthday

4 years ago today South Sudan became the world’s newest country. The journey so far has been a rollercoaster ride for the fledgling nation, but Timpir has been there every step of the way. As we reflect today on the ups and downs of South Sudan, it is important to acknowledge the achievements of Timpir through the continued support of our donors. We have been working with the people of South Sudan for 10 years now, since the signing of the Peace agreement in 2005. During this period hundreds of children have been supported to learn at Waramoth and Mabok Primary schools. 2 classes of students have graduated Primary school and over 800 students currently attend the two schools. We have employed over 20 teachers, and while 15 are currently still teaching at the schools, employment and experience working at at impair schools has enabled other teachers to further their education at University and High School, work for other NGOs and the Government. We have run many community development initiatives, some exceptionally successful, such as the digging of bore holes, others that weren’t so successful but have taught us a lot. Our biggest hope is that the young people we are educating become the future of South Sudan and help build a country that is as strong and resilient as its people.
