News Girls in Siem Reap province embrace HFCA's Village football programs

HFCA's three new community football programs in the Villages of Oroong, Sras Srong and Chub Smach are going really well with large numbers attending all training sessions.

HFCA actively encourages girls to attend our Village programs but were very surprised at the number of girls who have joined. In one week alone from the 17th to 24th of February we had a combined total of 50 girls join the three Village programs.

With support from our partner Build Your Future Today, HFCA is the first organisation to run a formal sports program in these three villages. It's amazing to see the girls passion for football but also HFCA knows we have so much to do to improve these programs. HFCA can see the gaps and we need to ensure they all have football boots and proper football gear. HFCA will be working extra hard to address these issues
