The Li Tim-Oi Foundation


The Li Tim-Oi Foundation empowers Christian women in the Global South in memory of the first Anglican Woman Priest.

What the Foundation does

In 1994, on the Golden Jubilee of Li Tim-Oi’s priesting, Archbishop Donald Coggan launched the Li Tim-Oi Foundation in St Martin-in-the-Fields Church, London.

It has so far helped 200 women from 67 dioceses in 11 provinces of the Anglican Communion – in Africa, Brazil, Fiji and Pakistan. These women have been trained for such positions as : Evangelist, Church Army Sister, School Chaplain, Social Worker, Trainer of Midwives, Youth Leader, Bishop’s Secretary, Theologian, Legal Adviser, Diocesan Secretary, Diocesan President of the Mothers’ Union, Co-ordinator of Pastors’ Wives Agriforestry Project, and Sunday School Teacher.

More than 50 have been or will be ordained. Without the help of the Foundation, they would not have been able to fulfil their vocations to leadership roles in their own countries.
