NamKhan Project Team

First of all, we have 30 people in Namkhan project team and all of them work in eco farming and building activities for our visitors in addition, we employ 30 other people i.e. from Laos who are responsible for contracts through contractors and these people help us the most because they finish different and important parts of the project. Many candidates approached us who had no big skills but they had great will to avail the chance as a result, they learn practices, carpentry, English and many other things at our farm. We have 12 volunteers who live in the farm because they help to build the project. If you have any questions regarding Namkhan project team and you want to know us, please click.

Dr. Christian Faber

Support/Medical herbs

As integrative and systemic thinking physician with many trainings, I would be pleased to incorporate my know-how from Western academic and complementary Medicine as well as from the Traditional Chinese Medicine into the successful developement of the Foundation.
Precisely the fusion between traditional, empirically acquired knowledge with the modern, state-of-the-art findings of Molecular Biology reaching to the new field of Quantum Biology drives and challenges me the most. Finally, Nam Khan Foundation creates the platform to develop a unique and new generation of nutritional supplements in which the entire value chain based on organically grown and fairtrade production could come from one single source.
