  • Description

    Description

    It's Moh, here. In 2019, I started an innovation company with the aim to connect small communities to digital economy by using design, technology, and social entrepreneurship.

    Our lab is working on a project to connect international travelers to authentic, meaningful, and sustainable experiences around Thailand, starting in Krabi. Every experience is built around concept of bringing travelers back to connect with the nature and where our food comes from. So, it's a lot about immersion of what it's like to be a fisherman, farmer, local chef, and local ranger. This is to offer experiences out of the main stream routes while preserving tradition and nature. This is going to be an exciting learning experience for both travelers and local villagers!

    We care about your learning experience as much as we are committed to our goal. So, please feel free to hit me up and have a chat on how we wanna work together :-)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Being with us as an experience host support, you will be able to

    - get a genuine cultural immersion in Thailand
    - legitimately learn about development issues in Thailand
    - learn/practice to create community driven social innovations
    - learn/practice making change through social entrepreneurship

    Everything you get to learn/do at the community will, at the same time, contribute to allowing the community to practice skills which will enable them to become self-reliance.

    This is a win-win-win situation :)
