Mekong Plus

Description. Lang: en

Mekong Plus is a non-profit, community development organization. It operates in rural areas of Southern Vietnam & Cambodia. The key principles of Mekong Plus are:

people's participation: nothing is done without a high participation of the people concerned
priority of the poorest
low cost, replicable actions.One major program is focusing on the poorest (who live with less than $1/day); with training and microcredit, support to education and health, assisting the people for proper housing, Mekong Plus currently works with 4500 households in Vietnam & Cambodia. On average it takes 4 years to double their income. Over 8000 households have already succeeded so.
Among other activities Mekong Plus provides sustainable employment for women. Together with the sister enterprise Mekong Creations and Mekong Quilts (today merged into Mekong+ Quilts), they sell products handmade by women in rural areas of Cambodia and Vietnam. At the moment the project is employing about 260 women, providing them with work close to their homes and families. Mekong+ Quilts is owned by the 2 Vietnamese NGOs which Mekong Plus helped to set up: Thiên Chí(which operates in Bình Thuận province) and Anh Dương (which operates in Hậu Giang province). All profits go to social development in the provinces of Vietnam and Cambodia and are being distributed by Thiện Chí & Anh Dương. The profits are returned to the villages both directly in the form of salaries, and indirectly in funding for community development projects. Examples of development projects are: subsiding latrines in remote areas to better hygiene, or the pig, - and chicken-raising programs, assisting poor farmers on how to increase their profit (training, follow-up, microfinance). The goal is community development.
