Indochina Starfish Foundation (ISF): An NGO committed to changing the lives of disadvantaged children in Cambodia.


Education is a fundamental human right. We believe 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…


The children in our programmes do not exist in isolation; they live in vibrant, close-knit and complex communities. ISF 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…


ISF 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, ISF provides regular training on social issues such as human rights, trafficking, domestic violence, gender equality and self-respect to the players. Read more…
