Some Achievements

Our work is spread over many subjects, a large land area, and many villages. We work steadily to accomplish goals and complete projects which meet the needs that are common to many Akha villages.

We have been able to increasingly bring to the attention of the world both the unique culture of the Akha as well as their human rights situation which leaves much to be desired.

There is much disinformation about the Akha that is propigated by ignorance and prejudice. We provide accurate information in order to correct these perceptions.

Wells, medical care, community centers, Akha language books and the establishment of a communications network within the Akha community continue to be our focus.
