Meet the Team

Ask a question

We are a team of 6 people plus community partners seeking to serve the needs of local communities. We have successfully implemented over 120 projects in 12 villages by listening to and working with the villagers themselves. Ta Pae Yoi is one of three villages located on the island of Koh Phra Thong and the latest to develop a community based tourism group. We provided guide trainings and helped to organize the tourism group, which led to the development of the homsetay program. The homestay program offers the village a secondary source of income and encourages them to preserve the natural environment that they have lived off of for many years.
