Happy Football

HFCA (Happy Football Cambodia Australia) was formed in 2005, with the purpose of working with disadvantaged youth in Cambodia through the medium of the world's most popular sport, football.

We fund football programs in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap, and endeavour to bring a team to the annual Homeless World Cup.

"HFCA is a terrific organisation and we're very proud of our association.

It gives otherwise neglected youth a sense of self-esteem, competition and the value of teamwork. Those able to make the Homeless World Cup team are given a world perspective they could never otherwise imagine.

In terms of return on investment, it's one of the best in Cambodia."
