This year, Chula SIFE has contributed to 3 communities by applying our business knowledge from classrooms as well as considering social and environmental factors to improve quality of life of our target groups.

1.) Soil Booster Project: In an attempt to decrease chemical fertilizer usage in agricultural communities, we offered farmers another alternative which is organic fertilizer produced by earthworms. We taught students at Panitwittaya School in Chachengsao Province to feed earthworms with leftover food and water then collect the fertilizer which is produced from their excretions. Students have obtained success skill and pocket money from nurturing these earthworms. Moreover, they have been playing an important role in this community since more than 40 families have switched to use this earthworm fertilizer and applied to their farming. We believe that this is a sustainable solution to chemical fertilizer usage.

2.) Amazing Kohkred: Kohkred was once a well-known tourist attraction with rich ancient Thai-Mon culture, but there are less and less tourists these days. Locals feel discouraged to stay in their hometown and to foster the culture since their incomes are not enough. Chula SIFE brainstormed with locals and came up with a simple but effective strategy for Kohkred. Map and Discount Coupon as well as Youth Guides will contribute to an impressive and valuable experience for tourists who will then tell their friends about it – Word of Mouth strategy. Now locals are able to marketing themselves which already resulted in an increase in income. This project is not only improving local economy but also strengthening Kohkred community by growing cultural pride in the heart of young generation.

3.) Cost Board: Crop prices, middlemen and natural disasters are external factors that farmers have no control over. However, farmers can manage their agriculture-related cost which is an internal factor. We have adapted cost accounting for farmers who do not have accounting knowledge so the content is easy to understand, in addition; we used role play technique to open their minds and convey all the messages. They now realize all the costs and understand their own cost structure. This foundation will lead to cost reduction process in the next phase of this project.
