Sarafina! film event

Timpir’s second movie event took place in July 2006. This time we started with a brief UN directed documentary about the return of South Sudanese refugees from Khartoum to South Sudan which served to educate our attendees. We followed with the enlightening movie ‘Sarafina!‘ — a musical that dealt with issues of apartheid in South Africa.

African Music and Food Celebration

The Timpir African Music and Food Celebration took place in September 2005. This was an exciting blend of Sudanese talent in both cuisine and music. People who attended came away with full tummies and smiles on their faces from the music and dancing. The Celebration was a worthwhile event as it involved members of the local South Sudanese community and even featured two of our Board Members in the acts! Guests were taught how to dance “Sudanese style” by Timpir’s Project Director, William Baak, and in no time the whole crowd was on its feet.

Multicultural Rugby Day

Timpir was present at the very successful multicultural rugby day at Woodville Rugby Club, which was organised by the New Arrivals Outreach Project. Timpir again held a very prosperous raffle and the day was a great success with rugby coaching, various games, clowns and other entertainment for the kids.

Hotel Rwanda film event

Timpir’s first major fundraising event was the ‘Hotel Rwanda’ movie night in June 2005. The turnout was fantastic, the movie was relevant and the enthusiasm was inspiring. The movie night also included food and drinks, so people were able to mingle and chat about Timpir’s cause, aims and objectives. A very successful raffle was carried out, with members returning satisfied with great prizes donated by many Timpir supporters.

African Festival 05

The South Australian African Festival in April of 2005 saw the launch of Timpir to the public. This was a busy day with over one hundred flyers explaining the situation in South Sudan being distributed to visitors.
