    My NGO promotes agricultural management which protects the environment
    Mayu Ino, originally from Tokyo, founded the NGO Seed to Table in 2011, based in Hanoi, Vietnam. This NGO runs several services, such as the preservation of indigenous seeds, the development of organic agriculture for fruit and veg, a “bank” which loans ducklings and cows, the organisation of a support network for women in rural regions, sharing of knowledge between younger and older generations to keep traditional practices alive… Its aims are to promote a form of agriculture which protects the environment, healthy management of natural resources by the locals and to help the villages in the south of Vietnam escape poverty.
