Phase 1 to be planted in 2022

Myinmethi village

  • 1,800 population

  • 5 km from Kalaw, in Shan State

  • Primary source of income: farming

Ethnicity: 
Taung Yoe (from Shan Mountains, but not Shan Ethnics)

  • Language is close to Burmese

178 acres of degraded soils:

  • 8 areas marked with green color (in image at right)

  • These abandoned areas are in direct control of villagers (largely no pasture, no agriculture, no land dispute)

  • Some areas retains a bit of forest cover, so we might not need to plant whole area, but around 150 acres of plantation


Relationship with Community:

  • Villagers are well-aware of previously implemented reforestation project by Philippe in a neighboring village

  • And now asking to replicate the same in their village to recharge ground water


Tourism:

  • Hosts famous caves with plenty of Buddha statues, a hidden tourism gem
