The farmer's meeting of 17 March marked the "official" start of activities of Sainam's Farmers Co-op. Soon tractors will start working on the barrend fields, and the farmers will be waiting for the first rain.
THE SAINAM FOUNDATION is active in North Eastern Thailand (Isaan), the poorest region of the country where farming is the main source of income. Sainam mostly helps children who have been orphaned or abandoned by their parents or who come from extremely impoverished families. Sainam provides educational scholarships, developmental assistance, and medical care for the neediest people living in the areas where the N.G.O. is active.
The Sainam Foundation’s projects are based upon the idea of involving the potential beneficiaries of our help in the working process and making them part of a wider common project. Sainam can count on a popular base of volunteers, all living in the villages where the organization is active, that are always ready to notify the people in charge of deserving cases.
This project aims to become a helping center where there will be no difference between those who give and those who receive, but where there will only be the common goal of helping those who suffer and need a hand. The Sainam Foundation is in charge of the entire project. To achieve this goal the N.G.O. organized a working network with volunteers and local government schools.
