  • Mission statement

    At Children of the Mekong, we believe that every child has the right to get an education for as long as possible. Our approach is to respond to identified needs by a closely monitoring of children and their families. We encourage and support every child as long as she/he can or want to study, and bring a special care to our poor background university students.
    We operate in 7 countries: Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Thaïland, the Philippines, Burma and China (Yunnan).
    Every year we carry out:
    - 580 child sponsorship programs managed by local volunteers, with 22 000 sponsored children and 60 000 supported children
    - 100 development programs to improve the children and their family’s lives
    - 35 Bamboo volunteers in Asia every year to monitor the programs
