An exhibition with a conscience: 100%  of profits go to charity  

Children of the Mekong 

Organised by Children of the Mekong, with the aim of raising awareness and funds for their education programs in the Philippines, this exhibition brings along 30 artists, coming from different parts of the world, united by a personal drive and a strong commitment to making a difference in the lives of underprivileged children. All artists are generously donating their artworks. Benefits of the sales of these artworks will go towards the financing of 8 daycares situated on a dump site and a student centre, both projects located in Cebu City, the Philippines.

Children of the Mekong Hong Kong was created in 2003. It is a tax-exempt NGO, helping children in Asia to receive the education every child deserves.

Established since 1958, Children of the Mekong is originally a French NGO which was granted the French Republic's Human Rights Award in 1990. The charity helps children gain access to education, by offering individual or collective sponsorships and building schools and foster homes. Today, 22,000 sponsored children and 60,000 supported children are benefiting from Children of the Mekong's work across 7 countries: Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, the Philippines, Cambodia, Myanmar and China.

Managed by volunteers passionate about making a difference in the lives of underprivileged children, the Hong Kong branch is very active, organising awareness campaigns and fundraising.

 

The main purpose of this exhibition is to finance two projects in Cebu City (the Philippines).

The « Batang Mekong daycare program » includes 7 daycares for 80 children from 1 to 6 years old:

  • 1 meal per day (sometimes the only one) and medications if need be.

  • A Montessori pedagogy instead of wandering in the shantytown

  • A place where they receive care, love, security.

The Children of the Mekong students centre in Cebu City is the oldest and largest student residence in the Philippines. Our goal is to provide accommodation to university students, additional tutorial, professional life training, to help them find a job.
