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

Our mission since 1994:

Supporting rural communities in southern Vietnam and Cambodia towards sustainable development* with and for all.

*Sustainable development: development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Sustainable development is based on a long-term vision that takes into account the inseparable nature of the environmental, social and economic dimensions of development activities.

two main tools


Mekong Plus has a scholarship program with almost 4,000 scholarships per year. The scholarships are very modest, ranging from €20 per year up to middle school, to €40 per year for high school. We have very good results, and many high school students go on to further studies.


In Vietnam, 5 to 10% of villagers live on less than €1 per person per day; in Cambodia the figure is 15 to 20%. Mekong Plus manages to get them out of this situation in 4 to 5 years by increasing their income by 25% a year. With loans of €80 to €200 repayable after 6 months, technical training, monthly family follow-up and 6 interest-free loan cycles.
