Small-scale coffee farmers across Northern Thailand lack access to resources critical to coffee production and marketing. Absence of these resources results in less sustainable, lower quality lives for farmers and their communities. The goal of this project was to develop an approach to assist small-scale coffee farmers with overcoming barriers to a sustainable way of life by providing them with informational resources. In collaboration with the Raks Thai Foundation, the team designed and tested their developed approach in the village of Aayae. Results of the project include specific resources for farmers as well as recommendations to Raks Thai Foundation for the continued use of our approach.
