Farming
Together with the land-plot allocation, the homeless resettled by Hope Villages are also given a small plot of land for crop plantation such as rice, chilli and tapioca. More than just providing land and seedlings, Hope Villages also ensure that the villagers are equipped with sufficient knowledge on agriculture and are constantly up-skilled with environmentally friendly farming techniques to improve their harvest yield year on year.

Many villagers were previously fishermen found it difficult to put food on the table. Their main source of income – fish from the Mekong River – have significantly reduced due to increasing number of dams built along the river over the last two decades. It was clear to them that fishing was no longer a sustainable way of earning a living. In addition to owning a plot of farming land – which is already beyond a dream come true - having the opportunity to re-skill as farmers, they believe they now have better control of their source of income where returns are more predictable and highly rewarding.
