Welcome to One Family At A Time.
Find out more about our charity below!
One Family At A Time is a Registered Australian charity and has been operating since early 2015. One Family At A Time (affectionately known as OFAAT) was founded by Chair, Jenny Chalmers (Jackson) after she and her partner John, travelled around Cambodia in 2014.
Touched by the generous and kind-hearted nature of the Cambodian people, Jenny made the decision to register a charity which would focus on supporting individuals, families and communities, in order to assist them to live the lives of their choosing and achieve their full potential.
One Family At A Time focusses on four priority areas:
improving access to quality healthcare;
improving access to quality education;
providing safe, accessible and affordable housing;
increasing opportunities for decent employment for adults.
Having a strong focus on the social determinants means that we have a strong gendered lens and strive for equity in all that we do. We know that educating girls and focussing on women’s health and wellbeing improve the health, wellbeing and prosperity of the whole family and also of the community more broadly.
Our approach is different to most other charities and NGOs as all of our work and effort is as a result of comprehensive needs assessments which we undertake with Village and Commune Leaders, Health and Education Leaders and staff, communities and families. In addition to making sure that the programs are needed and wanted by the community, we also focus on ensuring that all of our work is evidence based and sustainable.
