Mekong Plus- Home

Mekong Plus- Home

They make the bridges by themselves!

Development is really possible when the people are in control. No bridge for the children to go to school? The villagers hold a meeting, set priorities. The necessary funds are collected, the rich pay more, the poor provide labour. And Mekong Plus adds 25% of the budget.

The whole village contributes. At first Mekong Plus was reluctant to be involved in building bridges and roads. But it is indeed the top priority of the people. Our support: coordination and set priorities -where there is a school, a market, or many households... Mekong Plus covers 25% of costs.

The impact, after many years, is fantastic. Hundreds of kilometers of roads, hundreds of bridges have been made. The people are so grateful, and the whole local economy has been boosted. It was good to trust the people.

But are these works not the responsibility of the state? Probably, but the state starts with the main roads; the village roads and small bridges are still made by the villagers. When the state sees the villagers have done their part, it is encouraged to give them priority for larger structures which will connect villages and communes together.
