About us

Cambodia_sliders9

The SCOOP Foundation Australia Inc is a Perth based non-profit organisation committed to supporting children out of poverty.

We are run entirely by committed volunteers who want to create lasting change. Our intent is to bring care, growth and equity to the communities we work with, through service, respect and transparency. We are the Australian division of The SCOOP Foundation, an Irish based non-profit founded in 2008. This unique structure means we have already secured partnerships with two grassroots organisations based in Cambodia and India. Our purpose is to raise money to support these organisations in building schools to provide free education for kids living in poverty.

We provide deep, life-changing sustainable support, partnering with local NGO’s, developing organic programs that touch the lives of the most vulnerable children in meaningful and tangible ways.

Our partners on the ground give us regular updates to ensure our donors and supporters are involved in every step of our projects, the stories of the children we are helping and the daily challenges and triumphs of our work.
