S$41,141 raised to finance and build

16 family homes

Tabitha Foundation Cambodia is an organisation that invites international volunteers to finance the materials and labour required to build houses for some of the poorest families in Cambodia. Volunteers then travel to the villages and, working under the direction of Khmer builders, help complete the houses.

AAM Advisory put together a 26-strong build team and set a target of $36,000 to finance the build of 16 houses. All other trip expenses such as flights, hotels, transport and food were paid by individual build team members.

In total, over S$41,000 was raised through various fund-raising activities including a pub quiz, game nights, bake sales and even a small office fete with vintage games and an annual leave raffle.

Providing accommodation and a clean

water supply

The AAM build team headed out to Cambodia to complete the houses (for 16 families, who between them had 46 children) all in a single day. We were able to provide weather proof accommodation and a clean water supply that should last for many years to come.

 

“The chance to meet the actual families we were supporting, spend a day in their village and learn how they lived, was an incredible experience! I’ll never forget the huge smiles and the warmth of the welcome we got on arrival. There was no sign of sadness or despair, just an abundance of joy, curiosity and the generosity to share with us what little they own.”

The additional money raised was donated to the People Improvement Organization (PIO)

The PIO programs provide some of the most vulnerable women and children in Cambodia with hope for the future. It’s their belief that, through education, real improvements can be made to the lives of the Cambodian people. Setting them up for a life out of poverty.
