Founded in 2006, Indochina Starfish Foundation (ISF) believes that Cambodian children living in extreme poverty can build a brighter future, where they have access to quality education, healthcare and sport.

 

Through an accelerated Education Programme, ISF gives children who have never been to school the opportunity to complete two years of ‘standard’ education in one school year.

 

ISF believes that valuable life lessons and skills can also be learned outside the classroom. The organisation runs Cambodia’s widest-reaching grassroots community football programme. Through this programme, ISF aims to increase access to sports, build life skills, and improve the quality of life for underprivileged youth in urban and rural communities across Cambodia.

 

The football programme includes players who are deaf and hearing-impaired, blind and visually impaired, wheelchair users, HIV positive players and young people with intellectual and physical disabilities from local schools, organisations and community groups.

“When I play football, I feel strong and I’m having fun. I will never get tired of playing and hope to be a coach when I grow up.”
