SPROUT OF THE MEKONG : STARTING WITH FAMILY
Because travel is as much a learning as a pleasure, you want to live with your children a really great adventure outside the box.
Would you not like your children to emerge and grow, nourished, transformed by encounters with children around the world? The focus of this challenge is on children meeting with very different people.
The trip is quite flexible, depending on the age of your children and your desires for discoveries. Here is a pack that we usually offer:
- Duration of the trip: 10 days and 9 nights.
- Immersion in our projects: 4 half days on a single site (Long My)
- Supervision: insured from arrival until your departure.
- The price includes comfortable hotels – meals (except drinks) – bike rental and logistics – competent guides.
- Price: 1300 €
Solidarity commitment is the visible part of your participation in our NGO. We ask you to be ambassador of Mekong Plus, to talk about us and our projects; to raise a financial contribution that will go directly to the Mekong Plus programs. For this Bamboo Bike, it is 10,000 € for the group.
This represents a substantial budget, we are aware of it. Yet it is not difficult to achieve! See our examples and crowdfunding platform.
We are committed to using the equivalent of your carbon footprint in our programs that fight against climate change (currently € 100 per participant).
Excerpt from a letter from an uncle to his brothers, sisters and nephews:
Dearsisters and brothers, nieces and nephews. ..
I’m in great shape from any point of view, but I also know that I have reached an age where we want / can share more, and here’s my proposal: As you know, Mekong Plus is an NGO that I cherish (…). I learned that it was organizing cycling tours at the heart of their projects. So I invite you to Vietnam for a fortnight! Certainly I cannot be on a bike with you, but I could follow you. I will cover half of the ticket for each (carbon footprint compensation included!) And of course, all expenses in Vietnam. I think it would be really amazing for our extended family to share this experience and I would say that if we could be a dozen that would be fabulous . (…)
In the end 23 responded and will join this trip!
