Koh Tao, Better Together

 

Koh Tao, Better Together is a crowdfunding campaign established by BIOFIN and UNDP Thailand to support 200 local boat drivers who have lost all means of livelihood due to COVID-19 and the stoppage of all tourism-related activities. Koh Tao, Better Together will provide cash for work employment opportunities for the small tour boat drivers to gather marine debris and maintain clean beaches. The campaign will help local people survive during the pandemic and prepare the island for the eventual re-opening to tourism.
