Project descriptionKok Payom is a strong community surrounded by mangrove forests few kilometers from the Andaman coast. Villagers want to preserve their life style and the nature for the next generation. They welcome visitors, activists and volunteers to join in any useful activity. The community has recognized their problems and is working hard to find solutions to the issues they face. The work can go from education to environment, sustainable agriculture to health, to promote solidarity. The main activity for most volunteers is teaching English but as a tool to get together for the community's future.
