our figures: 1,000 villages supported / 4,000 school scholarships / 7,500 microcredits in progress

support for the construction of small-scale infrastructure.

There can be no sustainable development without improved infrastructure. In 30 years, Mekong Plus has built 700 small bridges and over 1,750 kilometers of roads to reduce the cost of transporting goods and enable children to go to school.

The health of villagers and schoolchildren has improved thanks to the installation of over 1,000 latrines and drinking water tanks in schools and villages. Having a roof over one’s head is a priority for the poorest of the poor.

Each year, we help to build around 70 small houses of between 25 and 40m², with an average of over 20% recycled plastic panels.

Bridge issues in the Mekong Delta

Mekong Plus invests more in people than in infrastructure, but sometimes infrastructure is necessary and villagers contribute 2/3 of the cost.

Mekong Plus has already helped build 165 concrete roads and 255 bridges. The maximum contribution for a bridge is €780, and there are between 500 and 1,000 crossings every day.

Thanks to these small bridges, which allow bicycles and mopeds to pass, incomes increase and it’s easier for children to get to school.


In Khmer villages, almost no one had their own latrines. Today, 95% of households are equipped! And in Vietnam, too. Personal hygiene has improved considerably.

In the Mekong delta, “the latrines are above the fishpond to feed the fish”. Everywhere, we offer clean but modest latrines (from 26 euros). For the poorest families, we give a bonus for the installation of clean latrines.

In elementary school, we help to improve sanitation after training teachers in hygiene and health: latrines, wells, water tanks, lessons, etc. Schoolchildren, with the help of their teachers, maintain the facilities.
