Introduction: Viet Hai village is located on Cat Ba Island in the Lan Ha Bay archipelago, which forms part of the greater Gulf of Tonkin. There are approximately 13 000 inhabitants on the island scattered around 5 villages. The highest concentration of people lives in Cat Ba City. It is only with the connection of electricity in 2009 that people started returning to the village and resettling began. Today there are circa 300 people living in the village with the principal economic drivers being agriculture and tourism. The village is more popular with eco tourists due to the location inside a valley on the other side of the island from Cat Ba town and therefore does not receive as much tourists. In the village itself there are circa 300 people with the principal economic drivers being agriculture, fishing and tourism. The village is more popular with eco tourists due to the location inside a valley on the other side of the island from Cat Ba town and therefore does not receive as many tourists.
Scope of Project: This is a CBT project that the Foundation designed on behalf of the Bhaya Group. As part of the agreement the Group provides material support to help the farmer’s to enable them to farm the land. Seasonal produce is purchased from the farm for use on Bhaya’s boats, creating a real time benefit for both parties. During phase two of the project we aim to focus on agricultural education by maximising the planting and production cycle.
