This project assessed the Educational and Social Development Programs in the Khob Dong and Nor Lae villages of Doi Ang Khang, Chiang Mai, Thailand. We used archival research, observation, and interviews to gather data for a comparative study in order to determine why some development programs have failed in the Khob Dong village. We identified factors of influence that inhibited acceptance of the development programs, and we assessed the villager needs that were not being satisfied. We provided recommendations to address the gaps of communication between the villagers and project directors and to improve future development programs in the region.
