We are a united group of people, comprising family members, friends, friends of friends and people who just arrive at the spur of the moment for help. We mostly work independently with our own tasks and together as a group whenever needed for the benefit of everyone. Food grown, money earned and help is always available for those that need it. Our Homestay is more of a Home for local people that need somewhere to stay, to become part of a family and just carry on normal everyday live, get back on track and return to their life more confident and self aware of what it truly important in life. To be part of this not only helps the people around us but hopefully lets you see the real rural Thailand, how they live and how they can be so very happy with what they have.
