Buoc-village is a small village of Thai-people (an ethnic group came from southern ofChina) with very
pure landscape. As you can see on the above map, this area is placed by only green color and a lot of
mountain. Because of this natural condition, Thaipeople here 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 here to move to higher lands, and build permanent \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 infrastructure, 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.
Help local people to garden and repair traditional
houses (if needed), organize leisure activitiesfor their
children and cultural exchange with the villagers.
