Youth Farm Network (Y-Farm) is developed by enthusiastic youth of the countries in Mekong region. Y-Farm focuses on issues related to youth and farming activity in the region. Y-Farm develops an eco-system for engaging youth (young volunteers) with farming sector and related activities: which include Teaching farm, School farm/garden, Organic farming, Youth farmers and community farm.

In addition to this, the Mekong Region has become “hot spot” of climate change and social development initiatives. Y-Farm is considerate about this opportunity and poise to remain relevant to issues related to youth education, hydropower dam, wildlife protection, environment and climate change. Y-Farm initiative gathers youth and other stakeholders to work together to protect our social and environmental assets in the region. We are leaders in receiving the project grant from prestigious YSEALI Seeds for Future Program funded by U.S Department of State, to work in five countries in the Mekong Region: Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar (Burma), Thailand, and Vietnam.
