Indochina Starfish (ISF)

The Indochina Starfish Foundation is an international charity which helps some of the poorest, most disadvantaged children in Cambodia.  ISF believes that every child has the right to education, healthcare and sport. Its education and football programmes deliver these rights to Cambodian children.  It currently works with about 225 children from the Stung Meanchey district in Phnom Penh, a number the organization expects to gradually increase to 700 by 2016. Its football programme delivers coaching, leagues and tournaments to over 3,000 disadvantaged boys and girls in Phnom Penh, Kandal, Battambang, Prey Veng and Sihanoukville.

ISPP’s relationship with ISF started in 2012.  ISPP students work individually with the organization’s children in a Big Brother/Big Sister Project on the weekends.  ISF children also participate in Wednesday activities where ISPP students teach them things like English, arts and crafts, games and most recently swimming.
