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.

We are open!

16 June 2020 – We are overjoyed to welcome you back in our charity shop. We have prepared the 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 delighted to see you again soon!

We accept all donations except:

  • pillows, blankets and duvets
  • toys, including board games and soft toys
  • bulky items
  • electricals

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.”

A year after, we heard this great news from Ines: “Recently I passed an English test named TOEIC and I got 985 points over 990! I can only thank you for that because I learned a lot during my stay in London, and it wouldn’t have been possible without Children of the Mekong!”
