Working as a local wisdom network coordinator, doing community research as the Permanent Secretary of The Sustainable Community Development Foundation.

When the family does not have enough to eat, is overburdened by debt, or is falling apart from stress, no amount of medicines, iron supplements, and immunizations can help. A much more radical approach is needed for the health and well – being of the community, one that goes beyond distributing medicine, providing immunizations and health education. The Sustainable Community Development Foundation, together with Ubonrat hospital staff, public health care workers and interested villagers, facilitates the formation of interest groups, strengthens learning processes, and provides management skills in achieving individual and mutual self-reliance.
