I recently have started to sponsor a little boy in the Mae Um Lo Child Development Centre, in Nadoi, Thailand. It says that both of his parents sometimes work as seasonal farmers.
Can I get more details about what the village is like, what crops they grow there, what the soil is suitable for etc? On an information sheet I received it said they would benefit the most from getting a fairer price from the local farms crops.
If I could get more specific information, in addition to sponsoring my childs educational and spiritual journey I'd love to see if I can help his family and village with their economic prospects. If the area was suitable for say, "forbidden black rice" or something I'd love to work with you (and other organizations if necessary) to look into how much it would cost to establish a crop with better demand/prices, fundraise for it, then establish a demand with restaurants in my own country and work on getting a new fair trade business ready for exporting.
If that was unrealistic I'd like to know about other options that would benefit his village (community gardens, road development, bicycles, other industry equipment etc) that I could fundraise towards.
