Educate a Child — Raisely Campaign

South Sudan School

Timpir’s Educate a Child campaign has become a Raisely campaign.

If you believe in the power of educating ALL children, please SUPPORT us! Timpir would like to raise $6,000 for 3 teachers’ salaries, to keep our growing schools running in South Sudan.

To keep the schools going we need to be able to pay our teachers for their work. Timpir’s schools are growing and this has put increased pressure on our funding to continue the schools.

Our goal is to raise $6,000 to cover the cost of 3 teacher salaries. Each teacher salary costs $2,000 per year.

You can donate (tax-deductibly*) here:

*Timpir is a partner for Project J943N (South Sudan) with Global Development Group (GDG; ABN 57 102 400 993). GDG is a charitable Non Government Organisation [NGO] carrying out humanitarian projects with approved partners and providing aid to relieve poverty. Gifts over $2 are tax deductible in Australia. All donations are received subject to GDG’s donation and privacy policy ( If excess funds are received they may be applied to other approved project activities.

Timpir was established in 2005 by Mel and Kuol Baak who passionately believe that education is the most important basis for development in the new nation of South Sudan.
Kuol was a former child soldier and refugee from South Sudan who still has strong links to his home region. Mel has a PhD in education which fuels her commitment to improving access to education for all.
Since then Timpir has grown enormously with the support of Australians who believed in us and our vision. We have a dedicated and passionate team both in Australia and on the ground in South Sudan.
Timpir’s main projects focus on supporting two schools in South Sudan. We have over 1300 students enrolled and 16 teachers employed over two schools.

​How Can You Help Us?

1. Donate towards our campaign. This is a simple way to make a real difference.
$160 pays a teacher’s salary for an entire month. But even your spare change will help out.
*Please note that donations are tax deductible*

2. Share our story with your friends and family. Share our story on facebook or email.

3. Hold your own mini-fundraiser or crowdfunding campaign.
In the past some of our Timpir supporters have held fundraising events such as morning teas, dinner parties, classroom fundraisers and personal challenges such as running a marathon. Alternatively, talk to your workplace about them becoming a corporate sponsor.

Please contact us for fundraising kits. One of our inspiring founders can speak about Timpir and our work at your event.
