How to donate
We have a PayPal donation page. This is secure, and all the money from the donations will go the school. Just click the DONATE button – and you will be directed to our donation site.
We have a shop with tuareg jewellery. The tuareg people from Timbolo society donated this for the school. Please buy and support us with our work. This is jewellery that matters!
The school is located north of Timbuktu, Mali, in the village Timbolo.
This is a funding page through the bank in Norway. We startet a fundraising which is especially for funders in Norway. Our goal for this is to get enough funding to buy desks and chairs to the school. For the funders outside Norway – please fund via PayPal. Thank you so much!
Timbolo scholars. Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today. I think they don’t mind to sit on the sand. All they want is education. But we always work for the best learning situation for the children. Together we can do it.
Help our School-project will change the lives of tuareg children and their families in Timbolo (Timbouktu). If you want to do something truly remarkable, donate our school-project and transform a community.
This will help more than 70 children and their families and achieve the dream of an education. The project works within community to build and furnish the school and supply students with school materials.
You are just one click away to make the difference!
This organisation was established to give the tuareg children in Timbolo (Timbuktu/Mali) education possibility. The school committee management worked five year to realise the school project.
The sami organisation Samiland to the world – later made a new organisation with the name Help our School, wanted to show solidarity with other indigenous people and started to search for help for fundings to build the school. KOOK in Netherlands gave us financial help for building the school, and the sami organisation as well as donators all over the world, bought educational supplies and pay salary for two teachers. The school have two classes.
Help our School was registered in Norway january 2017, with org.nr 918406476, as volunteer organisation. We have 3 boardmembers. Annual report of the organisation work will be sent every year in february.
Our partners in Mali are the school committee management with 6 boardmembers (4 men and 2 women).
Together with the school management members we make decision for the use of the donations. Till now – the money have gone to pay the teachers salary and buy educational supplies. Late in may 2017 we got donation that gave us the possible to offer the children one meal pr day, which make the children more motivated for the school. Unfortunately without regular donations we can’t offer lunch the school year 2018/19.
All the money from the donations goes to the school. The tuareg society in Timbolo worked volunteer during the building of the school and making the meals for the children when we had the fundings for that. Tuareg society also donated jewellery which is sold via the webpage.
The organisation work to handle the economy – and to find eventually partners to the school. We are responsible for the webpage and all the technical operations with it.
Two members of the school committee management are taking care of buying the educational supplies and pay the teachers salaries.
The only paid workers are two teachers. All the others work volunteer.
The organisation work to establish the economy, to secure the school. We still have many things to buy, the most important now is inventory to the school. That will make the learning situation better for the children.
We have also received postal packages which included notebooks, pens, bags to children for their school books, books etc. The last year we also sold jewellery, donated by the Timbolo families, which has been a good success.
We still need more donators and we want to thank every one of you that donated to the school. The tuareg society in Timbolo have for the first time seen that there is hope for their children, and that education is the freedom for their people.
Please help our school to be secure in future and help us to make a better world for the future generation. Donate for the future generation.

Help us invest in improving education
Timbolo Oct 2018
Bikima Ag Ibnou is talking about (video) how important education is. It is no secret that a good education has the power to change a life. The first thing that strikes me about education is knowledge gain. Education gives us a knowledge of the world around us and changes it into something better. It develops in us a perspective of looking at life. It helps us build opinions and have points of view on things in life. One thing I wish I can do is, to provide education for all: no child left behind and change the world for good!
