In 2018, we made our first visit to Timboni School having supported the charity in the UK for some years.
A personal visit makes an incredibly strong impression and as we began to meet the children and teachers, see the school buildings and experience the welcome, we understood why visitors are captivated by people who remain resilient and desperate to learn despite the area being abjectly poor.
The charity, since its inception in 2012, has raised over £100,000 and has been able to fund the building of three classrooms, fund nursery teachers to provide education for the very youngest and contribute to a feeding program that now feeds over 300 children twice a day. Books, desks, fitting out the cookhouse, has all been achieved as well as plenty of other smaller wins along the way.
What we really like about this charity is that there are no admin/overhead costs
100% of funds raised directly helps the children of Timboni School
