ICS has always been committed to contributing to the growth of Cambodia’s economy and giving back to its communities.
Since 2018, members of our executive board have supported Project Aokas, a project for at-risk-youth that provides martial art opportunities, as well as work experience and guidance. The project has committed to developing a new generation of forward-thinking problem solvers that have the tools necessary to succeed in any endeavor they decide to pursue.
Project Aokas has produced some of Cambodia’s first national Jiu Jitsu athletes, and continues to help support young individuals with big aspirations.

EmbraceAbility has been operating in Cambodia for the last 4 years, working with families on Koh Dach providing crucial therapy services for children with disabilities and assisting with poverty alleviation.
In 2020, Project Aokas joined forces with EmbraceAbility to form a unique NGO that now works with Children with disabilities and provides sport opportunities to all.
ICS has facilitated establishment of a youth community centre that also doubles as EmbraceAbility’s headquarters and operational centre, H/Art Academy. The space was designed and built by ICS as a micro project in 2018, during its start-up phase. ICS has been committed to helping EmbraceAbility become a social enterprise to facilitate the operational work they must undertake regularly.
Members of the ICS board are also members of EmbraceAbility, and regularly advise and take part in the operational activities of EmbraceAbility.
