Mekong Plus works in Vietnam and in Cambodia.
Mission statement: community development in Vietnamese and Cambodian rural areas.
Mekong Plus has programmes in the following areas: education, health, employment, agriculture, environment, construction of public infrastructures.
Mekong Plus works with the poorest and asks them to become actively involved in the decision-taking and action implementation processes.
Mekong Plus adopted the following Lao Tseu precept:
“Go towards people, live with them, learn from them, love them! Start with what they know, build from what they are, and when it is over, they will rejoice and say: we did it for ourselves!”
The programmes are designed to have a sustainable impact without external support in the long run.
Fondation Albatros supports Mekong since 2011.
