The Murphy-Hull School Project is a chapter of Building Walls of Wisdom founded by Tim Murphy and Brian Hull. Tim is a Canadian born actor, playwright, poet, traveler, and teacher currently living in Ontario where he is pursuing his acting career. Brian is the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme Coordinator at GEMS World Academy in Dubai. Brian, his wife Theresa, and two daughters moved to the Middle East in 2011 after spending much of the first 35 years of his life in Winnipeg, Canada.
Both Tim and Brian are convinced that education is one of the most effective ways to tackle extreme poverty. In 2011, Tim initiated the Murphy School Project and to date has raised funds for two school houses in Kenya and one in Ghana. In April of 2013, Brian and his family discussed with Tim the process for initiating their own Building Walls of Wisdom chapter. In the end, Brian and Tim realized that their combined efforts would do more to fund schools than having two separate chapters. As teachers, Brian and Tim have seen the value of education and have an understanding of how education can give children and adolescents hope and empowerment. Together, with your support of their projects, it is their hope that a real difference can be made in the lives of children living in extreme poverty.
