CLEAN AND ORGANIZE IN FIVE EASY STEPS: CHIANG DAO NEARS COMPLETION

Thanks to a generous gift from a private philanthropic group in Florence, Italy, the Chiang Dao Project Protein installation can now be completed.  After last weekend all that's left is minor upgrading of the fish pond, building the Mushroom Hotel (November after the rains) and the final two-day village celebration in January, 2018, underwritten by the British Women's group of Bangkok. The new chicken coop is in full operation and the raised vegetable gardens are thriving, and the children are proud of their new skills.
This weekend six of Aj. Thongin's university classmates came from all over the Kingdom to help teach the  Five Step Maintenance Program which is part of every project. They spent two happy days working alongside the kids and the 14 college-student volunteers from Chiang Mai. 





The Chiang Dao Site is a traditional hilltribe village
inside a protected national park. It can be almost
inaccessible during the rainy season.


Before starting work the college
 students take a moment to mediate.

The preschool kids made cleanup fun.
