The Nujiang Development Program

In association with the Nujiang Prefectural government, we have identified several remote Nu and Lisu villages, often a day’s walk from the nearest road, that are sorely in need of basic medical and educational infrastructure. We plan, once the necessary funding is obtained, to visit these sites and to assess how best we can assist these remote communities in the spheres of basic health care, educational facilities and poverty alleviation. Still in its nascent stage, this project also has the full support of the local Nujiang Prefectural government, with whom we have long-standing contacts and who have provided us with a list of the most communities in need of assistance as well as suggested costs.
