  • Description

    Description

    Hi there, my name is Moh. I just finished my bachelor's degree in Global Studies and Social Entrepreneurship and decided to go back to my hometown after 12 years to start a social enterprise. We are an innovation lab aiming to decentralize development in Thailand.

    I am Thai but usually both verbally and mentally operate in English, so language wouldn't be a problem if you also speak English. Also really open to sharing and co-creating anything that can contribute to your learning and growth during your stay with us.

    I am really committed to this organization and looking forward to making this change with someone who shares the vision!

    We are an innovation lab looking to increase income of farmers in the North of Thailand. Our team has expertise in design for social innovation and social entrepreneurship. We are looking for someone who can come to add more skills in ecology and agriculture! We are in the stage of understanding and discovering challenges in farming practice among the community in order to co-create a solution with the community members/farmers to address the challenge. Your role is to work closely with the Thai designer to identify the challenge, then develop the solution with the community.

    We look for people who are committed to make real change. Degrees related to ecology and agriculture are preferred. During free days, there are possibilities to visits other provinces in the North, like Chiangmai, via a train(5h). It's also very easy to travel to Bangkok(5h). There is also an airport 1.5 hour from the community. The Thai designer is a very adventurous person and travels a lot - you may be good friends.
