The Matesabroad Foundation
 is an Australian charity established in 2004 to relieve suffering in developing countries caused by poverty, illness or lack of education. 

Since its inception, Matesabroad has focused its support on an education program to improve the prospects of the poor children of Phnom Penh, Cambodia. 

It currently supports 5 slum schools in the poor communities of Phnom Penh. The program targets the poorest children; those unable to afford to attend Government schools. Through this program matesabroad hopes to break the poverty cycle in which these children are trapped.
