The project, initiated by the Foundation For Community-Soul, addresses significant challenges faced by about 60,000 silk weaving women in the region. These weavers traditionally use chemical dyes in their processes, which has led to severe health issues, including exposure to heavy metals and various occupational hazards. Furthermore, these practices also pose environmental risks due to untreated wastewater. 

To tackle these challenges, the project aims to shift the weaving processes from chemical to natural dyes, thereby promoting eco-friendly practices and improving the health and safety of the weavers. This transformation includes the use of plant-based dyes like indigo and lac, which are safer for both the weavers and the environment. The project also involves setting up savings groups to provide financial support for weavers in times of need, enhancing vocational skills, and developing silk products that align with contemporary consumer trends concerned with environmental sustainability. 

The project's objectives extend to raising the standards of community weaving and strengthening women's groups in the network of the Foundation For Community-Soul and HomeNet Thailand. It encompasses various activities like organizing workshops, promoting career and product development, and encouraging the establishment of saving groups. The target groups include leaders of women weaving groups in Surin and Roi Et provinces, with a focus on economic empowerment, health, environmental sustainability, and gender equality. The project is expected to empower leaders within these communities, promote unique and eco-friendly products, and create a network that supports and enhances the capabilities of women weavers in Thailand. 

The project led by Supaporn Thongsook yielded remarkable outcomes in empowering silk weavers and promoting sustainable practices in Surin Province, Thailand. One significant achievement was the formation of a leadership group comprising 45 members. This group, focused on addressing the economic difficulties faced by silk weavers with limited resources, successfully established a revolving fund of 100,000 Baht to support ongoing silk production, ensuring the fund's growth and sustainability. 

Additionally, the project facilitated the expansion of knowledge and enhancement of professional skills in environmentally-friendly silk weaving techniques across three villages. This initiative not only improved the health of the weavers by reducing exposure to harmful chemicals but also contributed positively to environmental conservation. Furthermore, the project extended its reach to female farmers involved in mulberry cultivation and silk production. This extension was particularly impactful as it equipped these women with the necessary skills and innovations to adapt to global warming challenges and implement environmentally sustainable practices in their silk and mulberry farming activities. Overall, the project's success in integrating economic empowerment, health, environmental sustainability, and skill development created a significant and lasting impact on the community.
