About ISF

ISF Cambodia (ISF) is a Cambodian based charity with over 14 years of experience using education and sport to change lives. Our aim is to make a fundamental and lasting change in the lives of some of the poorest and most disadvantaged children and their families in Cambodia.

Our Education Programme focuses on children in the slums of the Cambodian capital Phnom Penh, whose extreme poverty means they have never gone to school or have had to drop out. We provide them with a quality education and healthcare whilst working closely in their communities to lift entire families out of poverty. Through our grassroots Football Programme, ISF works directly with 3,000 youth, promoting equality and providing opportunities to those marginalised by poverty, disability, HIV and gender.
