About Us

Tabitha Foundation Australia (TFA) was established in 2002 to support Tabitha Cambodia.

TFA Board and members work on a voluntary basis - 100% of all donations are sent to support the programs in Cambodia.

Tabitha now supports more than 33,000 families (representing over 264,000 Cambodians) in their journey to a better life, including food and income security, safe water, housing and education for the children.

In 2009, TFA was declared by the Australian Minister for Foreign Affairs as an approved "Overseas Aid" Organisation and and received DGR tax deductible status and AusAID OADGS status.  These recognitions provide Tabitha supporters with assurance of our accountability and transparency.

A testament to Tabitha Cambodia’s success is that it has lifted over 300,000 Cambodians out of poverty and despair into lives of dignity, joy and active participation in their communities.

The primary goals of Tabitha Foundation Australia include:-

  • Encouraging and facilitating fundraising to support Tabitha Cambodia
  • Encouraging volunteer house-building teams to work with Tabitha Cambodia
  • Developing a network of schools that support Tabitha
  • Facilitating corporate sponsorship, including "team-building" programs
  • Seeking opportunities for Tabitha Cambodia to sell it's cottage industry products in Australia

With fantastic community support Tabitha Foundation Australia has grown rapidly.
