Buffaloes in Sapa
We chose three families in Sapa, Lao Cai (Vietnam). Due to their financial situation, these families needed all the help they could get to work their rice fields, including from their teenage children. This meant the children had no time to attend classes.
What we did
We spoke to locals, to understand how we could help. We decided a couple of buffaloes would provide great help in doing the heavy work!How did we finance the project?
E-ducare (then called Fairtour, Ed.) launched an awareness campaign and organized a football match with the Italian actors’ national football team. We also received private donations and support from friends in Italy.The outcome
All three families can now work their rice fields without help from their children, who are free to attend school.
