This is an ethnic minority mountainous area with high rate of HIV/AIDS infected people.

This is the second crop. The project loaned the farmers with potato seeds. The productivity is 20 ton/ha – 40,000,000 VND/ha after only 3 months (growing an overlapping crop between autumn-summer crop and spring-winter crop) whereas the effort of lowland farmers is to reach 50,000,000 VND/ha of rice in 1 year.
3. To organise for over 30 Vietnamese NGOs to visit the midwives training project of HEDO in Kim Boi district, Hoa Binh province.
4. To co-ordinate with Doctor Doan Ngu to visit Ford Foundation’s project in Ha Giang – delivering syringes and condoms to drug addicts.
