Description

Tara Winkler first arrived in Cambodia in 2005 and was taken to visit a small orphanage in Battambang. The children were living in extreme poverty, which had a huge impact on Tara. She determined to come home to Australia and raise money for the welfare of those children.

Tara returned to Battambang in 2007 with the money, only to discover that the same children she'd grown to love were in deep trouble - they were being subjected to physical, emotional and sexual abuse. In response, Tara worked with a team of caring locals and established the Cambodian Children's Trust (CCT) to provide these children with a new safe home.

Since then, Tara has learned a lot - most importantly, she's learned that establishing orphanages is not in the children's best interests. CCT has big plans to help many more children stay with their families and be cared for within their communities.

In How (Not) To Start an Orphanage , Tara shares the many joys and the terrible lows of her journey thus far with humour and passion.
