Background
Buoc village is a small village of Thai-people (an
ethnic group came from southern of China) 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,
Thai-people 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, villager still
lack a lot of education and understanding about

modern society. Therefore, it would be very helpful
to help and stay with BUOC-villagers.
