With Mekong Plus and its partners, you choose the sponsorship formula that best suits your desires, your budget and your expectations. In concrete terms, your donation is allocated to 2 priority areas of intervention: School Scholarships and Microcredit.

Thanks to regular updates from our teams, you can follow the progress of the child you support and/or the progress of families supported by a microcredit. You can pay for your monthly sponsorship on our website by credit card, Bancontact or SEPA money order. Ideally, you support your godchild for a year or more. As soon as you have validated your commitment, you will receive a welcome and confirmation email.

We look forward to hearing from you: Loanna Becattini – contact ∂ mekongplus.org


our scholarship program

To tackle this situation of extreme poverty and provide access to school, we have set up a sponsorship program. Thanks to your action, a child will receive each year :

  • Access to a school
  • books
  • Compulsory supplementary classes
our microcredit program

In Vietnam, over 10% of villagers live on less than ½ €/person/day; in Cambodia, the figure is 15-20%.

Mékong Plus manages to get them out of this situation within 4 to 5 years, thanks to targeted training, microcredit and good follow-up. On average, incomes increase by 25% a year, doubling in 4 to 5 years. Except in special situations, Mékong Plus stops providing support when income exceeds €1 to €1.5.

It continues, however, to provide spaced follow-up to avoid any relapse – which happens in less than 10% of cases. More than 7,000 households, i.e. some 35,000 people, have benefited from the program and have been lifted out of extreme poverty.

Today, 6,500 new households are receiving loans.
