Mr Sangay (pictured above), the Founder and CEO of Happy Green Co-Operative, always held a close passion towards Agriculture & Farming, and decided to leave his secure government job in order to pursue his own social movement.

Situated in Bhutan, Mr Sangay, Tashi and Leki has prototyped and built a local electric dehydrator in the last 2 months. With this electric dehydrator, they can establish a food drying unit where its is able to dry many local herbs and make them into marketable products. The members of Happy Green Co-Operative hopes to build more of such dehydrator units in different communities, to provide more jobs & incomes for people while meeting the demands of the market in Bhutan.

Through the usage of the electric dehydrator, it generates 7 additional employment and directly helps 2 large established farms and other small farmers around the region, following the co-operative principle of Self & Mutual Help.

Mr Sangay has officially started his fundraising campaign on gofundme.com.
