Mr Stephen Salmon and ME!
ThaiCraft began in 1975 as Hilltribe Sales at the International Church of Bangkok. These volunteer-run events at International School Bangkok's former downtown campus operated until 1992.
In August of that year the ThaiCraft Association became an independent development organisation, For the first year only, small start-up administration grants were received from Dutch (ICCO) and British (ODA/Oxfam) funding agencies. By retaining a small share of sales revenue, ThaiCraft soon became and has remained a financially self-sufficient organisation.

This month I continued to heal from my shoulder procedure (January 2022) and learning to live with pain in my right shoulder.
I was completed module 1 of the Changemaker Lab - World Pulse 2022 cohort and updated my initiative.
I was invited to participate in the World Pulse PIE Steering Committee.
This year my shoulders prevented me from attending webinars organised by the Fairtrade Foundation UK team.
On a positive note I managed to post every day during Ramadan 2022 and produced a video in English and Urdu.
