The Foundation believes that rebuilding livelihood is one of the most sustainable ways of helping a disaster-stricken community back on its feet. Following the Wenchuan earthquake in 2008, the Foundation worked with the Shan Shui Conservation Center, an environmental NGO, to set up honey farms, walnut farms and small-scale tea plantations so the affected villagers can work and make a living. Two years later, the Foundation made further donations to help set up a free-range chicken farm and a Chinese herbs plantation. It also supported efforts to educate farmers and visitors on sustainable farming practices, paving the way for long term sustainable development in the area.
