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 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 has six priority areas:
PRIORITY #1 – Improving access to quality health and wellbeing services and programs (especially for women and girls)
PRIORITY #2 – Improving access to quality education (especially for girls)
PRIORITY #3 – Creating employment opportunities (especially for women)
PRIORITY #4 – Supporting equity by providing access to infrastructure
PRIORITY #5 – Prevention of Violence against Women and Children
PRIORITY #6 – Responding to Violence against Women and Children

Having a strong focus on the social determinants of health and a strong gendered lens and we 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 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.


A compassionate and inclusive community, where equity and wellbeing are within reach for all.
