MMIDI is the Mok Mai Integrated Development Initiative which is being implemented in the Mok Mai District of Xiengkhuang Province.
This project implements work in various sectors on a community demand-driven model that enables the project to tailor activities to the exact needs of each community. In 2014 we focused our efforts on the marginalized ethnic Hmong district of Mok Mai.
Xiengkhuang province is situated in the central region of Laos, it is one of the poorest areas in the country with an overall poverty rate of 35%. In some of our target villages, the poverty rate is actually at 75%! Many suffer from health constraints, high infant mortality, low life expectancy, poverty due to food and income insecurity.
