Our Story, Vision and Mission

Our group consists of an international team, led by thai nationals, evolving from a prior 5 year Thai government initiative (CBFCM) which had several notable ecological, environmental and community successes in Surat Thani province, Thailand.

With the completion of the project in 2015 a number of those involved wished to build on these successes and continue the work to maintain a clean and bio-diverse environment and to continue to support the people of the Thai Gulf – through direct action, interaction with local communities, education and awareness raising of children, adults. businesses and local authorities and promotion of community philanthropy – to ‘Build Back Better’ and ‘Shift the Power’.
