World Vision has been involved in Bo Kluea since 2008. It ended the first phase of the ADP in 2012. The programme is targeted to end in 2022 and aims to bring about sustainable development that can be fully undertaken by the local communities by working in tandem with national agencies and officials.

Living conditions are difficult because of inaccessibility, poor infrastructure, low incomes from farming and lack of alternative sources of livelihood.

In addition, this remote area belongs to the National Parks Department and the Forestry Department, and families do not own the land they farm on. They are unable to develop the area in ways that will improve their agricultural practices, for instance by building a reservoir.

In terms of education, children under five are often deprived of early childhood education as parents search for work in other districts and bring their young children along after the harvest or in the dry season to supplement family income.

Key Challenges: 
1. Families have insufficient income and not enough nutritious food
2. Limited access to clean water sources
3. Children lack opportunities to further their schooling due to transportation difficulties
Programme Goal: 

Children, families and communities in the Bo Kluea district are developed and transformed in order to have a good quality of life.
