WHY WE NEED YOU
Whilst the Cambodian economy is growing, millions of people including children and vulnerable young people continue live in extreme poverty, struggling to cope with little to no access to education and having very little hope of a normal childhood.
WHAT WE DO
Indochina Starfish Foundation (ISF) 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. The majority of children who enter our programme have had little or no chance to receive education. To give the children an opportunity to catch up and be integrated into the state schools system, we use a fast-track education programme, followed by supported integration into state schools as well as vocational training when young people reach the age of 15-18 years old. Our Education Programme supports over 700 children and through the services provided to the families of the children we work with almost 3,000 more people in the wider community.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The annual individual subscription is A$ 500. We guarantee that every cent is spent on our operations in Cambodia, and no deductions will be made for our administration in Australia.
HOW LONG DOES MY SPONSORSHIP LAST?
Sponsorship is a relationship, not a contract, and you can therefore stop at any-time. But we hope that you will see the difference your donation makes in the lives of children that ISF supports and will continue to support on an ongoing basis.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
It takes a few minutes to become a member. Just click ‘add to cart’ and complete the payment form. We will then send you a receipt to confirm your donation. Within 2-3 weeks we will send you a welcome pack.
