ABOUT US
ABOUT TABITHA FOUNDATION
Tabitha Foundation Cambodia is a sustainable non-profit organization which was initiated, founded and established in 1994 by Ms .Janne Ritskes. Since then, it has worked with over 1.8 million Cambodians in the country's poorest communities. Tabitha's philosophy of self-help is designed to promote self-sufficiency and dignity through savings, counselling, and goal-setting programs. 

Families typically graduate from Tabitha programs within five to seven years with food for their children, clean water to drink, shelter and a source of income. More importantly, they would achieve a sense of dignity that allows them to look to the future with hope for their families. Tabitha Singapore was established in 2002 to support the mission and programs of Tabitha Cambodia.​​

​​Today 75% of all Cambodians still have no access to clean water or a safe place to sleep, and eat only one basic meal per day. 

That is why 100% of financial contributions received by Tabitha Singapore are remitted directly to Tabitha Cambodia. All money raised by the sale of Tabitha silk products is also remitted to Cambodia. A small amount of costs is incurred in shipping the products and making them ready for sale.
