TFM was conceived, and is driven, by a group of young Malaysians to contribute towards reducing education inequity in the country. Similar to other Teach For All partners across the globe, TFM sends carefully selected and trained Fellows to teach in high-need schools, especially among communities that face socioeconomic challenges.

For the Fellows, TFM hones them for leadership roles. They receive valuable on-the-job training managing students, dealing with peers and problem-solving. Many dedicate at least two years to this programme and then move on to the corporate sector. Some of them stay on as teachers out of sheer passion for education.

Wen Giving is entering a two-year partnership with TFM in support of a Fellow on a mission to increase student achievement by helping students discover their passion for learning and excellence.

WEN Giving is helping the villagers of Giranchaur in Nepal rebuild their community which was badly damaged by an earthquake in April 2015 by funding the completion of the community’s unfinished primary school. WEN Giving’s Sera Ruit visited the small village as part of the foundation’s Sustainable Village Project; a proposal to find a suitable village and villagers for the vision of building a sustainable community over a number of years. Sera found that despite facing serious issues in day-to-day living, including lack of shelter, water resources and road access, the community is forward-thinking and keen to discuss the opportunity to build a better village. The completion of the school will not only benefit 102 school children, but also provide extra shelter for the villagers during the rainy season.

Shree Mangal Dvip Boarding School was established in 1987 to serve the educational needs of children in Nepal’s Himalayan region. The school offers education, housing, medical and dental care to over 500 students. Classes include nursery to year 10 and the school’s mission is to provide tools for these children to build a better future for themselves and their respective communities.

In 2014, WEN Giving sponsored 35 boarding students in the school; mainly from high-altitude villages in the northern, mostly rural parts of Nepal. We have also provided funding for exam paper printing, textbooks, notepads, as well as Tibetan and Nepali language books for their library.

WEN Giving has once again decided to continue its support for the students for the 2018-19 academic year. Working with the school Administration, 15 students were identified for ongoing funding.

UWA Hours to Sunset, Australia

Hours to Sunset (2013) is a Venetian glass mosaic sundial created by Shaun Tan, world-renowned artist, award-winning author and filmmaker, and UWA graduate.

The sundial indicates the number of hours until sunset, casting a shadow that crawls up the wall as the sun moves across the sky until, at sunset, it is level with the gnomon (the part of a sundial that casts a shadow).

The curve on the left of the sundial shows the path of the sun’s shadow during the summer solstice,...

Hours to Sunset (2013) is a Venetian glass mosaic sundial created by Shaun Tan, world-renowned artist, award-winning author and filmmaker, and UWA graduate.

The sundial indicates the number of hours until sunset, casting a shadow that crawls up the wall as the sun moves across the sky until, at sunset, it is level with the gnomon (the part of a sundial that casts a shadow).

The curve on the left of the sundial shows the path of the sun’s shadow during the summer solstice, while the curve on the right shows its path at the winter solstice. The hour lines are angled to account for the different setting times between summer and winter so no adjustment is required.

Hours to Sunset is a reminder of the origin of all time-keeping, as well as our basic relationship with nature and sunlight, the principle source of life. With its contemporary interpretation of the earth, the clear starry night skies, and intense and powerful light, Hours to Sunset juxtaposes these evocatively Western Australian elements with re-worked classical and medieval astronomical and celestial designs.

Sundial Garden
The Sundial Garden, with three river stones and a golden egg nestled in a bed of white stones and gravel, was designed by Shaun Tan in collaboration with Susan Marie, Director of UWA Extension, and Helen Whitbread, landscape architect and manager of Sustainable Initiatives.

The work suggests that these glistening organic shapes have been deposited by the sundial. In contrast to the celestial objects and sense of air and light in Hours to Sunset, the works on the ground are about the earth, solid mass and gravity. The gold egg has a suggestion of wisdom, which relates to the university setting.

This installation was gifted to the University by West Australian property group, Hawaiian.

The Dalits caste is one of the most oppressed in Nepal and the school is run solely with donated funds and on a volunteer basis without any help from the government. Despite this, the school has triumphed against all odds with its year eight students achieving top positions in government exams.

In February 2017, the WEN Giving Directors visited the school to consider additional ways to support this community. It was agreed to continue to support the teachers’ salaries as well as review other projects around water supply, fencing and farming. Meet the school Principal, Mr Bhudi Mijar below.

Foodbank WA receives food and grocery products from farmers, manufacturers, distributors, retailers and the public and makes them available to Australia’s hard-working charities and community groups. 50,000 families depend Foodbank WA and demand is increasing with the charity having to turn people away.

Foodbank WA’s School Breakfast Program has many educational, social and health benefits. It’s about more than just filling a tummy: it’s helping kids feel happy, ready and able to learn and enjoy their school day. It is hard to believe in a State with the wealth of Western Australia there are thousands of children going to school every day without breakfast. Even after 15 years, new schools continue to register for support. Students who are hungry are more likely to find it difficult to concentrate, can be lethargic, have learning difficulties and exhibit behavioural problems. One in four teachers said these students are also sick more often and are more often late or absent from school. WEN Giving through Hawaiian is supporting this program.
