Events and Activities
Life Encounter A Foundation in Thailand is working together with the villagers of Maejanoi, Maehongson, Thailand.
Clean drinking water is scarce in the Karen Tribal village of about 60 households. During the dry season from December till April there is hardly any water available.
Engineers Without Borders (EwB Houston Professionals) has assisted in building storage tanks in 2016, and will come again in 2019 to install pipelines to households. This is to improve household and drinking water. They have been teaching villagers about tank maintenance. EwB has been raising funds for this purpose together with LEAF.
Engineers without Borders has been back to the village to help build the water storage and transportation system, to ensure better water provision for the village of Maejanoi.

Update on the progress in Maejanoi, Maehongson, Thailand
We noticed that managing the farm costs a lot of energy. We heard that the manager has been depressed but is now recovering from it.
Together we have made plans and preparations for the Team of Engineers without Borders who are planning to assist the villagers in February 2016 with better water provision.
The village is lacking clean drinking water and also water for irrigation of their crops.
Bee leads a small kids-class on Saturdays with a Bible lesson and reading and writing the Karen language for these kids.
Her twins are growing steadily and can be very naughty. Life on the farm is far from easy.
Coaching Trip June 2014
Our latest trip took place in June 2014. We went together with Joy, our secretary. We visited the farm and the adjacing village, to encourage the people involved in the project. We made jam from the abundance of mango's on the trees. We saw the twins who are now one year old. We visited and prayed with a woman (Chii) of 28 who is bedridden, due to being paralyzed after an accident 10 years ago.
More Activity on the Farm
The farmers have been actively involved in creating a new water source for the land, especially during the the planting season.
A new spot where natural water springs up from below has been turned into a temporary well that is used for mainly household drinking and washing water.
With donations they would be able to create a deeper well, for more durable water provision. A mechanic digger would have to be rented for digging the deep well.
Fund Raising for Tractor
We have been collecting about 200.000 Baht already and are still in need of another 200.000 Baht
The tractor is a 45 horse power tractor with a few soil work attributes, including a disc harrow and front loader.
In the meantime the tractor was purchased and paid by a loan to the farmer. This is what we call micro financing!
If you are interested to join in the support of this tractor, just drop us an email through Contact (see button the left) and we will let you now how to contribute.
