STEP Forward works to improve the livelihood of impoverished families and communities in rural areas of the Mekong Delta region in Vietnam. This is achieved through the provision or reparation of housing and schools, micro-finance loans and scholarship programs.
The Mekong Delta is a region in southern Vietnam. Despite strong agriculture and aquaculture industries, industrial infrastructure and foreign investment is relatively small across the region. As a result, the area has remained largely undeveloped economically.
