Janne Ritskes - Founder, Tabitha Foundation Cambodia

Tabitha was founded in 1994 by Janne Ritskes after she grew disillusioned with the policies and practices of mainstream NGO's operating in Cambodia. Janne Ritskes resides in Cambodia with her adopted daughter, Miriam. Janne is a citizen of Canada and Cambodia. She manages the operations in Cambodia with a staff of over 50 people composed entirely of Cambodians, trained by her. She has over 35 years or international experience with integrated community development programs. Her work has focused on the poorest of the poor in the slums of the US, the Philippines, Kenya and Cambodia.
