    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The population of Libo county, in which our small Tribe stands, is composed of 90% of the Buyei and Miao ethnic minorities. The UNESCO Biosphere Reserve is specifically conceived to protect the habitat and way of life of these minorities. In the small valley where we are, there is even a traditional fabric dyeing facility build years ago and still used by the Buyei people. They regularly pass on our community to let a cattle feed or go cut bamboos following the many trails in the surrounding mountains. As you can imagine, the potential for learning is immense, notwithstanding the pleasure of hiking trails or simply enjoying the peaceful beauty of the environment.

  • Help


    We need all kind of simple and less simple help. We need help to keep the valley clean, remove small debris, clean inside and outside some of the few buildings and rooms, handyman/woman type of help, gardening, cooking, as well as internet posting. There might also be some needed general, non-specialized assistance for art projects.
