Charity shop

Since 2014, our charity shop is running thanks to generous donors, regular customers and a team of dynamic student volunteers. All proceeds of the shop go to Children of the Mekong’s education programmes.

Re-opening soon!

28 May 2020 – Following the latest guidance of the UK government, we are preparing our charity shop to ensure the government’s 5 tests are met and we follow the COVID-19 secure guidelines. Your health and ours remain a prime priority, and we are very much looking to seeing you again soon!

We ask our generous donors to not leave any bags outside the shop, as they won’t be collected until the re-opening of the shop.

Contact our COO Eugenie Munakarmi if you have any question.

CHARITY SHOP IMPACT

We would like to wholeheartedly thank all generous donors and loyal customers. Thanks to all of you, the shop had a real and strong impact on children’s education in countries like Thailand, Laos and Cambodia. See in the timeline below the details of the charity shop’s impact since its opening in 2014.

Join our team

The shop is run by a team of volunteers. Many of them are coming for 3 to 6 months from continental Europe to get an experience in a charity in the UK. They can improve their English, and gain experience in customer service, logistics, merchandising and much more.

Join our dynamic and friendly team!

Ines – Student of a Business school in Bordeaux

I have worked at Children of the Mekong for five months, and I can confirm that it has been the best professional experience of my life. I had the chance to work every day with a wonderful team, with who it was very easy to work and who always put you in a good mood. Thanks to them, it was a real pleasure to go to work every morning. During my internship at Children of the Mekong, I also had the opportunity to learn a lot and grow all my skills. I know I will always remember these five months in London, as magical as I could ever imagine.
