Our Vision and Mission

“In our quest to preserve the nature, culture and agriculture of this area, we need to work together as a community.” – Michelle Mouillé, Founder

Sustainable Maikhao Foundation is a registered Thai nonprofit organization working with the public, private and governmental sectors in our community to keep our beaches clean, reduce and manage our waste and build a sustainable community through awareness, action and education.

If we can achieve this goal in Maikhao, we can share our ideas, practices and experience so that similar projects can be implemented in other districts around Phuket, Thailand and South East Asia.
