KFG Scholarship Program
Kingdom Fight Gym , in partnership with Youth Matters, have created a scholarship program to support and provide opportunity to the youth of Cambodia. The aim is to give the students the tools and knowledge necessary to break out of the poverty cycle and create a brighter future for themselves.
The program provides the students with physical training, education lessons, housing, nutritious food, and medical care. The focus is on a combination of mental and physical education. Daily they will receive Kun Khmer training as well as visiting the local Khmer school. The education lessons, outside the Khmer school, will cover a wide range of otherwise unavailable lessons. These will range from physical education, nutrition and Kun Khmer history, to environmental development, financial planning, and English classes.
The goal is to bring awareness to physical health and activity and highlight the importance of mental power to help the students gain confidence. The purpose is for them to grow and share the knowledge they have gained with their friends and families. But also for them to use their new knowledge and skills so one day they can work in, or create their own businesses, in the growing health and fitness industry in Cambodia.
Youth Matters has partnered with KFG to help grow the scholarship program. Together we promote social and cultural exchange between Dutch youth and youth from other countries to increase their self-awareness and give them a better view of their life. Furthermore, they support social projects that have their focus on improving the lives of disadvantaged youth worldwide. The collaboration brings long lasting sustainability and transparency to all parties involved in the social program.

KFG opened in April 2018. Since then they have been able to develop a proud reputation throughout the local community, along with expats and travelers. Today the KFG community is friendly and diverse group. KFG will continue to provide skilled coaching and fun classes to their community.
KFG have been able to support four local fighters in their professional careers, not only through free training but also by providing housing, food and English classes. Last year one of KFG fighters received a contract with ONE Championship, one of the world’s largest fighting competitions, and had his first big international fight, in Singapore.
KFG will be focusing on the local community by putting our energy into growing our social program. It is very important to get the social program running smoothly to have a long-lasting impact on the students.
