Its been a rollercoaster of a ride and several times it looked like we would have to close down but through the hard work of our staff in Cambodia and volunteers in Australia and around the world we have reached the milestone of nine years!!
In that time we have formed five official partnerships with other charities in Cambodia, been to seven Homeless World Cups in Melbourne (2008), Milan (2009), Rio De Janerio (2010), Paris (2011), Mexico City (2012), Poland (2013) and Chile (2014) and hosted the world famous Inter Milan in November 2008. We have also worked with ten times Champions League winners Real Madrid in 2012. For a small organisation we punch well above our weight.
Thanks to everyone who have helped us give some of the poorest youth in Cambodia the opportunity to turn their dreams into reality.

HFCA (Happy Football Cambodia Australia) was formed in November 2005 to work with underprivileged youth in Phnom Penh who did not have access to football pitches and played on the streets instead. HFCA started small with 20 youth from a local NGO, one small pitch, two footballs and a coach.

Melbourne's contribution to the success and life changing work of HFCA is massive and on so many levels its Melbournian passion and commitment to social justice that has been the driving force of HFCA's work.
