The ICF Education Sponsorship Program was founded in 2017 with the vision to:

Break the cycle of poverty by educating the next generation

Our mission is to enable students to reach their full potential by providing an opportunity for them to access quality education for free. Currently, in Cambodia, education is not highly valued in large part because parents themselves are not educated and children can begin working at a young age to bring money in for the family. In addition, quality education is expensive and out of reach for many families. Researches have proved the connection between lack of education and existing poverty. It is through a good education that we believe will break the cycle of poverty for individual students which will, in turn, affect their families and their communities for generations to come.
