Background

Agricultural Development and Social Assistance Association (ADSA)

Mission: ADSA is dedicated to fostering sustainable agriculture and generating employment opportunities within our community. We align with the policies of the government and our political party, ensuring that all segments of society can participate in implementing socio-economic development plans, enhancing food security, promoting responsible trade practices, and safeguarding our environment to break free from underdevelopment.

Vision: Agricultural Development and Social Assistance Association is a non-profit organization committed to nurturing prosperity in rural areas. We aim to provide employment opportunities and equip individuals with professional skills and technical expertise in agricultural production.

Target Group: Our focus extends to farmers, people with disabilities, and disadvantaged children.

Methods:

  1. Enhance knowledge and technical skills related to farming, particularly in tea, coffee, rice, sweet potato, and ketsana wood production, to enable these agricultural practices to flourish as commercial ventures.
  2. Improve the quality of life for impoverished Laotian individuals and ethnic groups by addressing issues such as material scarcity, inadequate teaching and learning resources, and limited access to quality education for disabled individuals, orphans, and children who have been victims of human trafficking.
  3. Foster unity and safeguard the legitimate interests of our members nationwide, serving as a mediation center for resolving various disputes among those engaged in agricultural work.
  4. Collaborate with relevant individuals, legal entities, and both domestic and foreign organizations to carry out our work in compliance with state laws and regulations.

  1. Promote sustainable and environmentally responsible agriculture.
