Child sponsorship

School is an opportunity that not every child has. In Asia, many children dream of being able to go to school one day.
“Education is the most powerful weapon to change the world.”
Sponsorship allows your sponsored child to go to school.
With your help, they will be able to take charge of their future and that of their family.

ENABLE ACCESS TO EDUCATION

Child sponsorship is a long-term support that allows your sponsored child to focus on their studies. Thanks to you, they will no longer need to toil in a rice field or a landfill to make ends meet.

Sponsorship also makes it possible to concretely improve their life and that of their family.

With £28 a month, you offer your sponsored child the possibility to be fed, dressed and schooled.

Stephanie

I’ve been sponsoring Namphon since 2007. She was a 6-year-old girl, shy and with learning difficulties.

10 years and many exchanges of letters later, I met her in Laos: a young girl who was radiant, spontaneous and keen to become a teacher. An impressive evolution!

From Europe to Asia, transparency, seriousness and enthusiasm are the terms that best describe Children of the Mekong. There is such a human quality in each of the members who make up this organisation!

The desire to take part in this adventure is necessarily contagious!”

Stephanie, sponsor of Namphon

Pagna Bour

I come from a poor family, from a torn family, from a family that has only one dream: that one day their children will come out of poverty.

I come from a family that believed that poverty was not inevitable and fought to make it a life force.

I am one of the thousands of the most disadvantaged young Cambodians who had the chance to meet Children of the Mekong one day.

Thanks to my sponsor. Thanks to them and to Children of the Mekong, I know who I am today. I am lucky! My family is lucky! Cambodia is lucky!”
