Geographical remit: 


Children of the Mekong is a charitable organisation that works with highly disadvantaged and impoverished local communities to improve access to and quality of education for children and young adults in Southeast Asia. The ultimate goal is to help the children it works with to reach their full potential and to break free from the cycle of poverty through learning opportunities. Its motto is ‘The children we care for today, will care for their country tomorrow.’


Children of the Mekong runs child sponsorship programmes and development programmes in Southeast Asia.

In London, we have a charity shop which hosts our office in the basement and raise funds for our education programmes.
