Pa Du Village
Ban Pa Du is an Akha village located at about 240 kilometer northeast of Chiang Mai city. The village has 92 households with a total population of 530 persons, 280 female and 250 male. The population is composed of 45% Christian, 45% Pantheist and 5% Buddhist. Seventy percent are illiterate, 30% understand Thai and less than 30% can write.

Majority households have not enough land for cultivation, only 10% of the whole villagers have land for agriculture and wages of labor is the main source of income for the village. TTC has worked with a group of 5 men who make the Akha musical instrument called "Akha Jews Harp" since 1985. Beginning of this year the village women requested Thai Tribal Crafts to help them, and we surveyed the village in June 2005 and decided to help the women by providing work of making embroidery pieces which we use to make several products, such as Purses, Bags of different sizes and design of export quality. There are 21 women with whom we are working now.
