Teacher Sponsorship

Timpir currently employs 5 teachers at Wäramoth Primary School and two teachers at Mabok Primary School. As the student numbers at both schools increase, so does the demand for teachers, and as such it is hoped that we will continue to be able to employ additional teachers. Timpir is only able to employ these teachers through the generous support of individuals and organisations who sponsor the teachers.

The teachers currently employed by Timpir at Wäramoth Primary are: Akoon Nhial, Tong Ayei, Ngong Dut and Werbok Nhial.

The teachers currently employed by Timpir at Mabok Primary are: John Mou, David Maker Ajang, Joseph Ayok Deng, Marko Abouk Atem and Maria Awol Manyuot.

To continue employing these teachers and be able to add to the numbers of teachers that Timpir employs, we need ongoing support of donors. The teacher sponsorship program assists us to pay the salaries of the Wäramoth and Mabok Primary School teachers.

What are the costs?

  • $150 per month or $1800 per year for a Year 1-5 teacher
  • $165 per month or $1980 per year for a Year 6-8 teacher

What does the program include?

  • Regular updates and letters from the teacher (however there is no postage system in South Sudan, so the delivery of letters will be dependent on people that are travelling from South Sudan to Kenya carrying letters for us).
  • A photo of the teacher every two years.
  • A progress report of the teacher and school every year.

Sponsorship provides a teacher with:

  • A salary
  • Teaching resources
  • Basic teacher training
