Restoration of the Thu Bon Riverbank to its natural ecological habitat

Objectives

To restore the river bank with the ecological habitat, fulfilling the aspirations of local people, especially so that younger generations may find hope by staying and thriving in their homeland, not migrating to urban areas.

Hopes and Challenges

GYC has established a community garden with Triem Tay villagers, and a farm.  Both projects aim to restore and preserve natural resources including water, soil, vegetation, and the wisdom of healthy living.  GYC is a social enterprise managed by youth experts, providing training to local youth in skills and values relating to sustainable living.  The village has been impacted by soil erosion for many recent years, and desperately needs the river bank to be restored after heaving floods in December 2016.  The project hopes to restore the riverbank and to inspire all participants.
