The September report-summary the progress of my project in KKF.


This is the last report of this one year project,so I will do some summary about what happened in KKF now,and I also will report about the progress of my helping item of KKF ;and the last thing is Daycha will go to Taiwan from Oct. 9 to 19.

In March,KKF has a seed training of Thai NGO workers.The main purpose of this training is let NGO workers know about the knowledge of rice,because of these NGO workers who were work with farmers,and they need to know more about the knowledge of farmers is helping them to work with farmers,these three days training were taught them about the histoy of rice,how to keep the seed of vegetables,and what situation of farmers was suffered.

In the last day,the organization named Bio Thai which care about biodiversity,they made a speech and then held a discussion to discuss how to education farmers that they must to use their own seed,because of the big enterprise always cheat farmers that the seeds which they sell can let the corp have high yield,through experiment of plant seed bought from company and the local seed,the fact is that if farmers want have high yield of harvest compare with local seed,they must to use chemical fertilizer,or they can´t have it.And another important issue is take back the right of farmers,because of now the big enterprise also want to control seeds, and they develop hybrid seed constantly, because this is a big industry, and now more and more hybrid soy been and corn,they still try to develop hybrid seed of rice, but they still didn't success until now,that´s also the importance of keep local seed.The seed bank of government was all keep the seed which need chemical and chemical fertilizer, except this thing they do nothing,therefore Daycha invoke that bring the local seed back to the local place,and let the local farmers has their own seed.

On Sep. 15,there are two students of KKF ,they brought the rice which they plant by the local seed,because of KKF´s training,they went to seed bank and ask to take back their local seed last year,and in this year,they already got the harvest from local seed.

Another important things is about KKF now is preparing to sell the Bathmati rice to the export market,like middle east.The resource of seed came from three countries which are Canada, England, and India. KKF they started to plant Bathmati at seven years ago. Bathmati is the local variety of India,this variety just can be grew in Himalayan,and now KKF already plant it successfully.In these seven years,and they got more than 150 varieties,and in last July,they started to let farmers to plant them,and in July,they held a Bathmati testing activity to let consumer,rice mill factory and farmers meet each other,and then KKF will know which kind of Bathmati the rice mill factory will like it,and this is the direction they can make effort.The last step of KKF is they want to build the model let farmers,consumers,and KKF all get benefit from this model.This model is they sold the Bathmati rice to ricemill factory,because Thailand´s government ever tried to plant Bathmati,but they failed,and Bathmati has a good market that rice mill factory will export for KKF,even KKF just has few amount of it,so this is KKF´s advantage. KKF also can through supplying the Bathmati seed,nature compose,nature fertilizer,and nature spray for farmers to earn money,and then farmers they can get good price from planting Bathmati,this rare variety of rice.That´s KKF try to do in the next two years.

In april, when the CEO of Hao-Ran foundation Leo came to Thailand,we ever talked about maybe it was a good way to tell Kao Khawn foundation that I can help some part of jobs to save the problem that they in actually didn´t know how to use a volunteer. Finally,Leo communicated with Daycha that maybe I can help KKF to build the English website and helping about the Home Stay project.And after their meeting, Daycha also talked about these work with me. When the first group came from Taiwan finished their Home Stay of KKF, I asked the office manager to have a meeting to discuss what suggestions of Taiwan´s friend. Even the office manager, she said that their suggestions are useful, but I didn't  see anything get progress in Home Stay project, and the office manager ever invited me to join this project, but I didn't know what is next Home Stay group will come untill they are coming,so I can´t help anything of Home Stay project.

And regard to english website is also has no progress.Because of this job assigned for me,and the office manager didn't know about it until one day we chatted to each other.After one and half months she knew about it,and after that day, I ever asked her when should we have a meeting to discuss this job and then still has no progress.And even I just want to ask for having the key of office about 3 times,because I moved to second floor of office in July and I afraid that when I went outside if I didn't lock it,this will make some loss of KKF´s office,and the office manager didn't give me any answer except she said that she isn't sure where is the key shop.This kind of thing reflect that she does not want to say ”no” to me,even she really didn't want to give me the key of office,and even she can made some suggestion like,you can borrow the key of KKF´s staff,and she didn't say anything except the strange excuse.

You can said that KKF has their own problem of administrative ability, or you also can siad that if they can´t get any change except when they really want to change,or the really aware of this.

Daycha and another KKF´s staff who export in soil will visit Taiwan on Oct. 9.This time KKF was invited from Green Formosa Front Taiwan Association,and the ten days schedule was arranged by every part of Taiwan´s NGOs partners who care about the agriculture issue,so Daycha will make some speech about what KKF´s work and also visit some Taiwan´s farmers who work about sustainable agriculture.On Oct.19,they will finish their visiting in Taiwan.
