For many years, residents of Sub Tai village, Thailand were forced to supplement their incomes by poaching in nearby Khao Yai National Park, a repository of rare species and Thailand's oldest national park. In this participatory project, villagers signed a commitment not to cut trees or hunt in the park in return for low-cost loans.
To ensure that the rich biodiversity of Khao Yai National Park is protected, loans are disbursed for ecological income generating activities such as tree-planting and trekking services.
As a result, income in Sub Tai has nearly doubled and many community members are free from debt.
Thanks to 2 donors like you, a total of $50 was raised for this project on GlobalGiving.
Combined with other sources of funding, this project raised enough money to fund the outlined activities and is no longer accepting donations.
