ABOUT TABITHA CAMBODIA
Tabitha Cambodia (“Tabitha”) was set up in 1994 and since then it has worked with millions of Cambodians in the country's poorest communities. Tabitha's philosophy of self-help is designed to promote self-sufficiency and dignity through savings, counseling and goal-setting programmes. Families typically graduate from Tabitha programmes in five to seven years with food for their children, clean water to drink, shelter and a source of income. More importantly, they achieve a sense of dignity that allows them to look to the future with hope for their families. Tabitha has also been instrumental in setting up the Nokor Tep Foundation that is completing a women’s hospital in Cambodia to focus on women's health issues and facilitate women's access to treatment that is not usually accessible or affordable for them.
More information about Tabitha Cambodia is available on their web page.
Tabitha Foundation UK (“Tabitha UK”) was established in 2003 to support the aims of Tabitha Cambodia and its associated programmes. The organisation has no paid employees and is committed to keeping costs to a minimum. Tabitha UK acts as the UK arm of Tabitha Cambodia, raising awareness of the charity, conducting fund-raising activities, facilitating craft sales, promoting house-building trips, and fostering other local NGO relationships in support of the aims of Tabitha Cambodia and the corresponding public benefit.
