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 five 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 helps children escape the poverty cycle.

Partnership with Action on Poverty

The Matesabroad Foundation is an official Action on Poverty (AOP) partner and as Matesabroad does not have Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status in its own right, relies on AOP’s DGR endorsed status by the ATO, therefore any donations to support the activities of Matesabroad must be made through AOP in order to be tax deductible. While AOP will endeavour to comply with the wishes of the donor, AOP retains discretion at all times whether or not to distribute donated property in accordance with the preference expressed by the donor. AOP allows donations to be used only for benevolent activities.
