Phare Ponleu Selpak France (PPSF) is a partner association of Phare Ponleu Selpak. We support its social et educational programs through various actions on communication, handicraft sales, cultural projects, philanthropy, partnerships, fundraising, solidarity trips, exhibitions, performances co-productions, art workshops.
Founded in 2011 and based in Paris, PPSF counts around 10 members and many donors. Its internal policy stresses the importance of solidarity, engagement, professionalism, independence and transparency.
Phare Ponleu Selpak France, works closely with the Battambang school to identify its annual projects and priorities for funding. More specifically, PPSF has a prerogative to support the organization’s social support activities, child protection program, and basic needs and education for children. Donating towards these activities allows for French organizations and individuals to obtain tax benefits. Such tax benefits may also apply to other European Union countries, subject to the country’s individual laws.
Amongst our important members, Air France Fondation financed in 2013 the kindergarten renovation, and then the music school new buildings in 2016 in 2018, which also received the support of Anber Fondation. Apprentis d’Auteuil helped us on many projects, welcomed our performances during french tours and implemented circus workshops towards underpriviledged children. All Dreams supported several painting exhibitions from Phare artists. The Social Action Committee of Energy Companies (CCAS) organises solidarity trips since 8 years, bringing about 15 french teenagers to Cambodia during 2 weeks in the summer, for an unforgettable experience together with cambodian student artists.
