This project is designed to help alleviate poverty among 200 of the poorest Akha, Lahu and Karen Hill Tribe families living in resettlement zones in Chiang Rai, Thailand. By providing these formerly nomadic families with the means to feed themselves and participate in the market economy through pig husbandry, fish farming and crop cultivation, the project assists in their adjustment to life in mainstream Thailand.
For just $205 per family, the Khom Loy Project provides Akha, Lahu and Karen Hill Tribe families with pigs, pigpens, fish, ponds, seeds and training to help them feed themselves and generate income as they join Thailand's cash economy.
The Khom Loy Project will make it possible for 200 Hill Tribe families to feed themselves by engaging in animal husbandry and cash crop cultivation as they adjust to life in permanent settlements and interact with the lowland Thai market econony.
