Chiang Mai Agricultural Development Project for the Hill Tribe People of Northern Thailand
“For nearly 30 years now, all of my adult life, I have lived and worked in and around many tribal villages in Northern Thailand. During this time, we have seen so many people in the villages that are very poor and under the oppression of this extreme poverty. Their income depends on their crops, and while they work very hard, they have very little scientific knowledge about agricultural techniques. Because of this, they spend most of the year and much effort on crops which are harvested only once.
