Henry’s Hike Against Hunger

Henry is a Board Member of Timpir who had both hips replaced six/seven months ago. Henry is looking for your sponsorship as he attempts the return Waterfall Gully to Mt Lofty Summit trail on 23 July. To support Henry’s Hike Against Hunger please go to www.timpir.org/donate for details and don’t forget to let us know at admin@timpir.org so we can add your donation to the crowd funding campaign!

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.

Henry’s Hike Against Hunger is a sub-project of Timpir’s School Lunch program on Chuffed.org: https://chuffed.org/project/timpirs-school-lunch-program

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!

Timpir School Lunch Program 2017

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.

At the moment our schools are desperately in need of new blackboards. For only $100 you can provide a blackboard for a classroom. In addition, we will shortly be starting a school lunch program at both schools to help students who are severely undernourished as a result of the current famine in the region. So we would greatly appreciate any donations towards the food program as well.

Wäramoth Photos 2017

What an exciting day for Timpir. Not only are we able to finally receive tax deductible donations, I have also received 14 photos taken at Wäramoth primary school and sent direct to me via messenger by Wäramoth’s head teacher, Tong Ayei. Wäramoth Primary is doing absolutely brilliantly, with it’s regular 8 teachers now teaching over 700 students in Years 1-8. This year we have over 50 students in Year 8, including 20 girls, which is a testament to the quality of the teaching. As you will see from the photos, Wäramoth Primary is in dire need of further assistance. The blackboards desperately need replacing. For about $100, you can help purchase a new blackboard. Our tax deductible donations page is now up and running, you can donate through our Donate page.
