Indochina Starfish Foundation (ISF) is an NGO in Cambodia committed to changing the lives of disadvantaged children

Indochina Starfish Foundation changes lives

Education is a fundamental human right. Indochina Starfish Foundation believes that every child, regardless of where they were born, has the right to education, healthcare and support. Our work focuses on increasing access to educa­tion, improving school retention, and strengthening the quality of educational experience for severely underprivileged children and young people living in the slums of Phnom Penh.  Read more…

Indochina Starfish Foundation supports community development

The children in our programmes do not exist in isolation; they live in vibrant, close-knit and complex communities. Indochina Starfish Foundation believes it is essential to work with our children’s families, who live on the fringes of society and experience economic hardship every day. We support their families to ensure that when our students go home at the end of the day, they arrive in safe and caring homes. Read more…

Indochina Starfish Foundation runs an extensive football programme

Indochina Starfish Foundation uses football as a tool for development, delivering interactive and informative education to the children in our programme. We teach all players about the dangers of drugs, smoking, alcohol and gambling. In addition, we provide regular training on social issues such as human rights, trafficking, domestic violence, gender equality and self-respect. Read more…

There’s more exciting news from ISF’s Football Programme: we have been chosen to send four dedicated football players and a 'young leader' to the Football for Hope Festival 2018. The festival is part of the FIFA World Cup in Russia and brings together 48 delegations of young leaders from around the world to showcase the power of football as a tool for social development. We will present the opportunity to all our players at the opening of the AIA-ISF Youth League this Sunday 26th November. The four players (both female and male) and young leader selected will travel to Moscow next June for an 11-day programme of sports, capacity-building and intercultural events, including attending a World Cup match! This video from the 2014 festival in Rio shows you what our team can expect: ow.ly/fG0Q30gLtJI
