Background:

Buoc Village is a small village of Thai-people (an
ethnic group coming from southern of China) with
very pure landscape. This area is composed by
only green vegetation and a lot of mountains.
Because of its natural condition, Thai-people rely
mainly on agriculture. In the past, the village was
located adjacent to streams and people in the
village used water of the stream for gardening.
During the rainy season, water from the mountain
goes down through the streams and washes
everything away, making it very dangerous to live
close to the stream. For this reason, the
government has helped residents to move to higher
the lands, and build permanent and traditional
houses with wood. 10 years have passed since the
new BUOC Village was reconstructed in 2002.
Currently, firm houses, concrete roads, electricity
have become the basic-living-condition of every
villager. Although the stream is very beautiful it is
dangerous. Despite the good aspects of new
infrastructures, villagers still lack a lot of education
and understanding about modern society.
Therefore, it would be very helpful to help and stay
with BUOC-villagers.
