Challenge

Foreign companies from China, India, Japan, Korea, and Thailand are starting very large scale coffee production near Nongyatheung village using chemical fertilizers. These rapid industrial farming developments in nearby villages will cause damage to the precious organic farmland in Nongyatheung village and will cause larger financial gaps between rural areas marginalizing the villagers.

Solution

Provide facility and method for producing chemical free agricultural products to farmers. We will present them marketing channels and business education for conducting future business.

Long-Term Impact

Villagers can be independent chemical free environmental agricultural business owners and obtain sustainable income while preserving organic farm land. They will be able to have clean toilets, water wells, and water filtering system for each house. *Please refer to attached document for more details.
