This project enables mahouts and their Elephants to live back in their home community in Huay Pakoot, a Karen community in Northern Thailand. This means that these elephants and their mahouts are offered an alternative livelihood away from working in the tourist camps and street begging. GVI Chiang Mai have partnered with the mahouting village & work alongside them in reintegrating the elephants back into the forest as well as improving livelihoods and job opportunities for community members.
