Kin in training for the Homeless World Cup
“I grew up in Kampong Speu province but moved to Phnom Penh in 2008. My family situation was very difficult back then. I lived in a very poor area and couldn’t attend school, so I moved to Phnom Penh with my uncle to try and get an education."
“My friend knew about CCF and told me to come and join the football program. Playing football with CCF has made me much healthier because I am exercising more and eating better. I joined because I wanted to get experience and training from other players so that I could become a better footballer."
“I feel so happy to have been selected for the Homeless World Cup. I hope we win, but mostly I am looking forward to visiting Norway, and seeing how people from other countries play football.”
