Aim

Mekong Blue is the commercial operation of the Stung Treng Women’s Development Center (SWDC), a Cambodian humanitarian NGO focusing on developing life skills that assist in breaking the cycle of poverty and illiteracy for vulnerable people, especially women, in Stung Treng Province.

History & Philosophy

Established in 2002 by a Cambodian couple, SWDC supports a community that deals with the challenges of poverty, low education, few employment opportunities and geographical remoteness. SWDC aims to break the cycle of poverty and improve living standards by offering programs in literacy and health education, vocational training and employment.

Through Mekong Blue, the organisation uses silk renowned for its sustainability to create beautiful products that incorporate both traditional and contemporary colors and designs. Most importantly, through the production and sale of these products, the life of the community is improved and individuals are empowered.

SWDC is currently the largest employer in Stung Treng Province, Cambodia.
