Who we are

The Mekong Club is a non-profit organization that focuses on working with the private sector to address modern slavery and related crimes, such as human trafficking and forced labour. Our business association members include brands and companies from a range of industries, from financial services, to hospitality, retailing and manufacturing, amongst others. We cultivate a community of likeminded professionals, seeking to create sustainable approaches to ending modern slavery.

What We Do

At the Mekong Club, we are committed to developing and implementing sustainable solutions to modern slavery through private sector engagement. Our Members span across multiple industries globally, and we regularly convene these companies to discuss key trends, challenges, and opportunities for collaboration. We work confidentially with companies to understand where their anti-slavery strategies stand in relation to industry standards, sharing best practice and practical recommendations. Furthermore, we develop innovative tools based on the real-world insights from our members, and resources to further industry-wide responses to modern slavery trends and challenges.
