"Last year, we were extremely proud to hear that the Smart Cambodia Team won the Best Men’s Trophy at the Homeless World Cup 2016 in Scotland. This reflects the positive output from our partnership with HFCA – how this program has transformed the lives of many homeless children."
"Now they are an inspiration to many other homeless children to keep working hard and never stop chasing their dreams. Football is one of the powerful tools for personal and professional development. Smart is committed to continue our partnership in 2017 and we can’t wait to see the future fruits of this program.”, said Thomas Hundt, CEO of Smart Axiata.
