Children of the Mekong supports many local education programmes. Street schools for children from slums, boarding schools for children from remote villages, upgrading schools for migrant children, schools in refugee camps etc.
By embarking on the adventure of collective sponsorship with £28 a month, you help a group of children to continue their education despite difficult situations. After setting up your sponsorship, you will receive a complete file detailing the structure you are supporting.

If you have the opportunity to travel to Asia, do not miss the opportunity to visit the programme you support for a truly moving experience.
