With the well program, Tabitha provides communities with clean, accessible water

Tabitha Celebrates 20 Years of Success!

Who would believe that one woman with a vision could improve the lot of more than 3.7 million Cambodian people in 20 years? Well, believe it! Janne Ristkes and her 50 staff continue to help and work tirelessly with the poorest families living in Cambodia today. And it is all thanks to Tabitha's supporters from all around the world—people like you and me—who make this possible through our fundraisers and donations.

So this year, in keeping with Tabitha's 20th Anniversary, Janne is asking 20,000 people to make a donation of $20. Because that's what it takes to support one family for a year in the Savings Program - to pay 10% interest on the savings of each family.

Please CLICK HERE to make your donation, and do so with our deepest gratitude.

Working side by side with the people of Cambodia

Our aim is to reach out to the despairing in their communities and enable them to address their needs in a holistic and sustainable way, thereby transforming their lives to fruitfulness, dignity and beauty.

Tabitha’s current programs affect 1.6% of Cambodians; presently over 475,000 people in 17 provinces of the country. Since 1994, Tabitha has lifted more than 3.7 million Cambodians out of poverty and despair, into lives of dignity, hope and active participation in their communities.

Latest Update from Cambodia

November, 2014
This past week I was once again reminded of what poverty is.  Absolute poverty or destitution refers to the deprivation of basic human needs, which commonly includes food, water, sanitation, clothing, shelter, health care and education.
