But how do we find these organizations? Well, we found them already, on our numerous research missions to the Mekong subregion in the past years. And we’re still seeking for new ones, as well. However, our goal is to have a finely selected range of projects, not too many. Those we choose to support can be found on this platform, and we want you to make the acquaintance of those wonderful projects. Their field of operations ranges from home and learning centers for children to human and animal welfare, medical support and development projects such as clean drinking water programs. These folks really do a very good job by sacrificing themselves for a good cause.
Throughout the years we’ve found many new, wonderful friends within those projects and we’re grateful for the relationships we were able to establish. This is how we’re bound to these organizations. And we’re sharing it with you by telling their story. It’s firsthand information on causes worth supporting.
