Right now South Sudan is experiencing a severe food crisis. After a poor season last year, the cost of food has risen astronomically making it extremely difficult for families to keep their children in school.
Timpir’s School Lunch program on Chuffed.org: https://chuffed.org/project/timpirs-school-lunch-program is aiming to raise $16000 in the next 3 months to support Waramoth and Mabok schools through this period.
Timpir has learned that keeping kids in school is the best thing that can possibly be done to ensure that they have a brighter future. By supporting Timpir’s school lunch programme you can be directly responsible for keeping a child in school through the most difficult period of the famine. The food programme will prevent girls being married off to alleviate the famine for their families and enable them to stay in school longer through more educational opportunities. Boys are also at risk of being removed from school to help provide for their families during the famine.
Timpir is running a school lunch programme for students for June, July and August. Its goal is to raise $16,000 to cover the cost of food for all 1300 students at its Mabok and Waramoth schools.
There are very minimal admin costs. Timpir’s local Aussie team generously offer their time for free and mothers in the school communities volunteer to cook the food. Timpir has a dedicated and passionate team both here and in South Sudan who ensure your money goes directly to the schools and lunch program.
A donation of just $100 helps Timpir cover the cost of food for 1 school for a day. But any bit helps! For the price of a cup of coffee you can cover the cost of one student’s lunches for an entire month!! Please tell your friends, colleagues and family about the famine and how they can help!
Change a child’s life today.
